(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

I will start out with a look at space-based solar power, including both microwave and laser based beaming approaches as well as seeing if there’s some use that can be had for that power that doesn’t involve beaming it. This will probably lead into discussion concerning interstellar propulsion. Also, I will present why I think storage makes space based solar power unnecessary and probably non-competitive on Earth. I will also explain why I think launch costs aren’t not the greatest barrier for space-based solar power.
