25 Million Mass Transit Space Travel Award
Legallock announces its second 25 million prize, for mass transit space
travel, "to sense the immortality of human kind".
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 5, 2007 -- In the category of future cool,
LegalLock today offered its second 25 million prize, titled the
Mass-Transit Space-Travel Reward, for a space craft that doesn't exhale
and that carries its own weight in passengers daily. The prize is meant
to encourage a new space age, in which Earth orbit and beyond are
accessible to the general public. Current technology won't work for
mass-transit. "We need something entirely new, leaps of imagination
that can be expressed as technological triumphs," said Robinson Joyce,
the Legallock coordinator and spokesman.
Legallock is a private philanthropic club, with an anonymous
membership, who share a common belief: becoming benefactors of the
future is a welcome responsibility.
"Current theories of space travel are teeming with possibilities,"
Joyce went on to say, "Creating the corresponding technology is only a
matter of time."
For Legallock members, however, the right ecology is of prime concern.
"It's decisive, for space flight," Joyce added, "We can't sweep up
behind us. And things like buying pollution credits is loading the gun,
and adding a silencer to the act of using it. It's wrong. Money doesn't
convey murder rights or planet killing permission. Nor is this prize
intended to. If, at moments, our announcement sounds like a manifesto
from the moon, with its attempt at a higher overview and harsh moral
rules, that's good. This really isn't about money. LegalLock members
understand, for example, that trying to eliminate the guzzling waste of
racing is as unrealistic as blanketing the glaciers to stop them from
melting. And ash tossing and sight-seeing and roller-coaster thrills
are in us all. But we want to make a higher dream our reality. We want
everyone to sense the immortality of human kind, and work to achieve
it. This can only be done through free flight, that offers flexible
controls for improvising in unexpected circumstances. Space elevators
and sling shots do not suffice, and as such aren't eligible to win."
