Mais uma da Lua

 

A Lua virou o centro das atenções mesmo. Bastou a China enviar seu “jipezinho” ao satélite que vários países divulgaram seus projetos lunares. Já havia escrito sobre os chineses quando, na semana passada, surgiu a notícia do projeto americano sem orçamento. Agora são os japoneses.

 

E nada mais japonês que esse projeto! Eles pretendem construir até 2035 um cinturão solar ao redor da Lua que captaria luz vinda do Sol e mandaria a energia produzida para a Terra.

 

A intenção do projeto – nada ambicioso – é fazer com que o Japão dependa cada vez menos da energia nuclear e dos combustíveis fósseis, no qual nem possui em quantidade, exceto o carvão, que é muito poluente. Usar a energia solar produzida na Lua tem ainda a vantagem de não depender do fator meteorológico: lá nunca estará nublado!

 

O “Luna Ring” irá cobrir todo o equador da Lua. Serão quase 11 mil quilômetros de comprimento, por até 400 quilômetros de largura, garantindo que se produza energia o tempo todo. A luz captada pelos painéis solares chegará às gigantescas antenas de transmissão (20 quilômetros de diâmetro!) para serem enviadas a receptores instalados em vários pontos na Terra através de raio laser e micro-ondas.

 

O mais mirabolante é que sua construção seria realizada por robôs!!! Não disse que eles adoram um robô? Uma frota inteira deles seria mandada para a Lua e montaria quase tudo.

 

A ideia é muito boa, mas me parece roteiro de um filme ficção científica, tanto que ainda está só no papel.

 

Apesar de se usar uma fonte energia limpa, uma questão que certamente será levantada é sobre a poluição visual. Imagine olhar para a Lua e ver uma faixa escura percorrendo todo o equador. Particularmente, isso não me agrada. Acho que a Lua vai ficar muito parecida com o Marvin, o robô deprimido do filme “Guia do Mochileiro das Galáxias”. Acho que é por isso que os japoneses irão gostar…

 

 

I hurried into the local CISM Exam Dumps department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would be in here Cisco 210-260 Dumps forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the CISM Exam Dumps Cisco 210-260 Dumps best I could 200-105 test through all the people to Bestexamview the toy department. Once Cisco 210-260 Dumps again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy Cisco 210-260 Dumps about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair CISM Exam Dumps and he held her so Bestexamview Cisco 210-260 Dumps gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking CISM Exam Dumps Examtestview 200-105 test over at the little boy and wondered 200-105 test who the doll was for. I Bestexamview watched him turn to a woman and he Cisco 210-260 Dumps called his aunt by Bestexamview name and said, “Are you sure I don’t have 200-105 test enough Cisco 210-260 Dumps 200-105 test money?” She replied a bit impatiently, Bestexamview “You know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told Examtestview the 200-105 test little 200-105 test boy Examtestview not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would be back Cisco 210-260 Dumps in a Cisco 210-260 Dumps CISM Exam Dumps few minutes. And Examtestview then she Bestexamview left the aisle. Examtestview The boy Examtestview continued to hold the doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. CISM Exam Dumps He said, “It is the doll Bestexamview my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that 200-105 test Santa would 200-105 test bring it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, “No, Bestexamview Santa Examtestview can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me CISM Exam Dumps with the saddest eyes Cisco 210-260 Dumps and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going 200-105 test to have to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, 200-105 test “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He Cisco 210-260 Dumps pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the Examtestview store. CISM Exam Dumps He said, “I CISM Exam Dumps want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so Cisco 210-260 Dumps very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says Examtestview she will need to be with my sister.” I Bestexamview saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. Examtestview I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney Cisco 210-260 Dumps Examtestview one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to Bestexamview be enough.” So I slipped my money in 200-105 test CISM Exam Dumps with Examtestview his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving Bestexamview me enough money.” Examtestview Then the boy Examtestview said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to give my sister. Bestexamview And he heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to 200-105 test buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, CISM Exam Dumps but he gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose so much. “In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And 200-105 test I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days Examtestview earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a CISM Exam Dumps little girl Bestexamview Bestexamview and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding on Cisco 210-260 Dumps whether CISM Exam Dumps CISM Exam Dumps to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not Cisco 210-260 Dumps CISM Exam Dumps belong 200-105 test with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support and the young woman had died. 200-105 test I could Bestexamview not forget the little boy and Cisco 210-260 Dumps just kept wondering CISM Exam Dumps Bestexamview if the two were Examtestview somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
