Next Big Future has covered the Startram concept in detail before . The GEN 1 concept involves using long, evacuated tunnels to accelerate unmanned payloads to orbital velocity. In theory, this concept could bring launch costs to LEO down to $50 dollar per kilogram. A more ambitious GEN 1.5 system could would take longer and greater resources to develop but could also put humans into orbit for a similar per-kilogram cost. In an interview with Sander Olson, Startram visionary James Powell discusses why he believes that the concept is viable, and how it could be developed within twenty years for $40 billion.

Rousing Intuition No approach to teaching, however brilliant or effective, will ever be more important than the individual teacher's ability to hear and act upon his own intuition. It is intuition that must guide the teacher's moment-to-moment work so that it is a creative and genuine response to the needs of his students. Without intuition and the teacher's genuine connection to his work, any and all approaches become dogma. In this course, which is the cornerstone of the Enki approach, participants will be introduced to observation techniques and artistic and meditative disciplines that can be used to develop direct perception of the child. These disciplines take us from the realm of concepts and ideas into our own direct experience of the child's world - and our own.
