Abstract : The author asserts that eventually scientists with the aid of a laser will be successful in their attempts to transmit energy in the form of a light beam from the earth to the moon. He states that besides energy and information, this same conveyer could be used to transmit other matter, such as fuel, air, and metals, thereby partially solving one of the major problems of delivering essential goods to the moon and possibly to other planets at a minimum cost. He suggests a hollow laser beam, which could be achieved with the use of light conductors or a hollow ruby rod. Such pipelines could reach through space from one planet to another carrying information, energy, and matter.
