<< One of the highlights of my trip to Extro 3 was the discovery that Forrest
Bishop has also given serious thought to blowing up the Sun. He's come up
with a totally different method. We had a wonderful conversation about
that, and related topics. There can't be many people who have considered
how to blow up the Sun, but two of them were at Extro-3. For two days, the
Doubletree San Jose was the world's leading center for Solar detonation

What would be the benefit of blowing up the sun?
