Question about starboost technology
I'm friends with Henson on Facebook. We did have a brief conversation a while ago, but he is not very active on that particular medium, so I haven't bothered him since.

Many of those ideas are well-represented in Orion's Arm, and we have a planet named after him, which also incorporates his ideas.

The idea of star boosting is a good one, but it could do with some input from a real astronomer- heating up a star would have some unexpected effects, such as changing the density and the rate of fusion at the core, and it might even change the mechanism for internal heat transfer in some way.
