It’s been ages since I’ve done a challenge theme.  And Ailsa comes up with some great travel themes on her blog Where’s My Backpack?.  Energy can be neither created or destroyed, says the physicist.  But the ways in which it is transported and concentrated have always fascinated me.

Also it’s interesting to think about what humans could do if we had an endless supply of intense energy and were advanced enough to use it only for peaceful and constructive purposes.  For example if in the future we could harvest the power in a supernova or a quasar.  Would we need to live and work near one?  Could we then transcend time and space?  All cool things to think about.
