Yes Jay,This is called "Progress"and many of us are
"Progressives". We seek to find a newer and better ways of
Just who is it that owns the sky?Who owns the air above our yards,
our towns, our states and above our nation? Is it private property
or part of the public domain? Is it everybody’s and
anybody’s who wants to use and occupy it. Will government
control the air space like the radio frequencies? Different companies could own
certain altitudes? Would there be a citizens band where ordinary people could
fly their drones? Just think, you could send your drone to the store for a loaf
of bread. Will there be noise?Do you thinks we should
decide these issues sooner rather than later?
Ultra Bob,A property owner has the right to a "reasonable"
use of the airspace immediately above his/her property. Above that fuzzy
minimum altitude, the US government has sovereign rights to control airspace.With the potential for drones flitting about the sky above our homes,
perhaps it's time to revise the boundaries above our properties -- upward.
I think the idea is really cool, but I can't wait to see what happens when
people start shooting them down.
Seems security is a factor. As Cats said, what is preventing the drones from
being "taken out" and the packages disappearing?
I don't think this will work but I love the creativity it brings. Thinking
outside the box brings forth innovation. I think the saddest thing is our
scaling back our space program. So many things like this opportunity to write
this post and put it on the world wide web and talk on cell phones are as a
result of the space program. While I'm not this particular idea is
feasible, I love the style.
