Submission + - Space Is (Not) The Place (ucsd.edu)

snoop.daub writes: A while back, I posted about Dr. Tom Murphy at UCSD and his blog about limits on growth in energy use and economies. Partly in reaction to Slashdot's response (and my own writeup!) he's back with a blog post arguing that space is not a solution to enable continued growth. There's a lot of good stuff in here about public misconceptions regarding the difficulty of space travel and the like; again definitely worth the read.
