I just love this shit :-)
We never got the future they promised our parents. To quote Leo McGary: “where’s my jet pack?” It’s heart warming to see money spent on insane crazy projects like this.
Of course, for his next trick, Richard branson could focus on building a network of major sea defenses for the UK. The idea would be to protect the land itself against erosion but primarily create a physical support for tidal, wind and wave energy generation…
I mention it because the Dutch started their latest high-tech sea defense network after the storm tide of 1954 so they’ve got a bit of a head-start on us.
That, and they didn’t finish until 1997 so c’mon Richard let’s get building ;-)
