- 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.
