An Evolutionary Path to SPS
A difficulty with proposals for satellite solar power systems is the absence of a plausable evolutionary pathway to development of systems on the scale required. One possible pathway is discussed, where the required technologies are developed and refined on an incremental scale. The initial stages of the process are development of ground-based photovoltaic power and of beamed power systems for space use. Written by Geoffrey A. Landis.
