    The fate of Solyndra’s millions of unused glass tubes is still unknown (many of them were likely destroyed — we’ll get to that part of the story in a moment), but luckily a pair of Bay Area artists somehow managed to get their hands on some of the surviving Solyndra tubes and put them to good use…not to produce electricity, but as art.
    Quite a bit to read and see.

    But inside, the artists have taken exactly 1,368 Solyndra tubes and arranged them in undulating geometric patterns.

    So that's what $500 million looks like.

    I like the Obama Chia better and it didn't cost tax payers anything.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Here’s where the story takes a tragic turn. If SOL Grotto has only 1,368 of the estimated 24 million high-tech unused Solyndra tubes, what happened to the rest of them?
    ...

    After the United States government “loaned” Solyndra $535 million, the money quickly vanished; the bankruptcy court later found that the company had essentially no cash on hand. They had spent it all on equipment and inventory.



    Do each tube cost $20? Okay. But even if they sold them at auction for 50 cents... they'd still make back 12 million dollars.

    Clearly, this should come out of the budget for the National Endowment of the Arts.
