A very interesting and tantalizing (to an SF geek like me) theory. Still an awful lot of work to be done to actually accomplish it, though.

Even if it turns out to be possible, it would involve an incredible commitment of resources. I wouldn't expect such an undertaking until there's a mature off-Earth (the Moon, the Legrange points) population and economy that can spare the time and effort.

That said, it's heartening to know such work is being done. Who knows where such research might lead?

I wonder who's going to test it, and where they'd go?

I'll let someone else try it first thank you very much.
