Space Based Energy
The Pentagon is talking about a Space Based Solar Power (SBSP) sys tem. The idea is to put into orbit huge solar collector arrays that convert the energy from the sun into microwaves that can be focused and beamed to receptors on Earth. Evidently the technology really exists to do this.
Sounds great, I want it. And I want it NOW.
