Space Solar Power (SSP) – A Solution for Energy Independence and Climate Change

There is an interesting discussion going on at change.gov about using space solar power as a means of achieving energy independence in an environmentally friendly away.  There is also a one page PDF white paper that can be downloaded but it is the discussion that is going on that I find more interesting.  Given the many technological advances that have been made since the initial NASA and DOE study at the end of the 70’s,  the creation of a pilot system is long overdue.

Take some time and check out the discussion about space solar power at Space Solar Power (SSP) – A Solution for Energy Independence and Climate Change.
