To solve the word's energy crisis; find a star that's emitted an infra-red photon. Just make sure the star you find is travelling sufficiently fast enough toward us so the photon is blue shifted into the gamma region far enough to have sufficient energy to last mankind for a millennium. It's frequency appears to change depending on the relative velocity of the detector to the original source even though it's detection may be millions of years later. Does this mean then that the photon has retained some information about it's source? - it will always travel at speed C...
