However, somewhere beyond the orbit of Jupiter, collection of enough solar energy to run a reasonable set of instruments *and* a radio transmitter will become “difficult” in addition to using an inordinate percentage of the weight of a probe.

Nuclear power has been invented, the only way it could be “disinvented” would be to destroy civilization and any memory of it being used. Personally, I’d rather keep the nuclear power, and use it _like a hammer, screwdriver, or other tool_ for productive purposes.

Also, there’s a problem with the link to Grossman’s website. One too many wwww’s.

Thanks.
