  1. The prototype is called the SERVe, for Solar Electric Road Vehicle, and it’s a joint project of Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal University, and Tata Power Solar, India’s largest solar company. The latter is part of the same parent company that now owns Jaguar Land Rover and other transportation businesses, though those companies weren’t involved in this project.

  2. In addition to building its own engines, rocket bodies, and capsules, SpaceX designed its own motherboards and circuits, sensors to detect vibrations, flight computers, and solar panels. On a radio, SpaceX’s engineers found that they could reduce the weight of the device by about 20 percent. And the cost savings were dramatic, dropping from the $50,000 to $100,000 for the industrial-grade equipment used by aerospace companies to $5,000

  3. Most of the social entrepreneurs I spoke to did not expect their businesses ever to develop into behemoth corporations. But that isn’t the point: they believe there is an optimal size for a business that should serve the recurring needs of the world and shift consumption norms by connecting consumer habits with values of fairness and sustainability.

  4. This is some brilliant jujitsu from ULA. The US government wants to have two different families of light and heavy rockets competing on price, so that it can go always get into space. But defense officials fear that SpaceX could dominate competition in light rockets before its heavy rocket is ready to fly, driving ULA—and its heavy rocket—out of business, and leaving the Air Force without a heavy rocket to use for a window of time. A failure to ensure such access in the 1990s is blamed for a group of failed launches that cost $5 billion, and destroyed three satellites. That’s why ULA wants an exemption from the ban on buying Russian engines.

  5. We libertarians defend economic freedom, not big business. We advocate free markets, not the corporate economy. And what would freed markets look like? Nothing like the controlled markets we have today. But how often do we hear mass unemployment, financial crisis, ecological catastrophe, and the economic status quo attributed to the voraciousness of “unfettered free markets”? As if they were all around us!

  6. Welby has big ideas about what that means. "I’m committed to farm-to-table, but the ‘to’ is the gray area, for everybody," she says."All consumers and producers, we’re getting really good at what the farm is, know thy farmer and all that. And we’re really clear about the ethics of the retailer—what are Whole Foods’ practices? Who runs the grocery store? But the ‘to’ is widely ignored, and for good reason: it’s a fucking mess."

  10. Some of these smaller countries with more agile governments--the Netherlands, Israel, Singapore--will have an advantage, because regulation is going to start to become a hindrance for innovation. Innovation at a large scale means that you're eroding some of the existing work forces and large businesses that are the tax base. And often, a government's first reaction to that is to put up regulatory barriers.
