The Case for Space Based Solar Power


We are burning hydrocarbons at an ever-increasing rate. Rising world population creates a global economy as more and more people want cars and refrigerators and all the other accouterments of the modern age. But where will we get our energy when the oil runs dry and the coal plays out? Can we afford to wait that long?

  • What power source can replace burning hydrocarbons?
  • How do we go about doing it?

This meeting is both presentation and an open discussion of these questions. Chuck Lesher, a member of the local HSGP and NSS Chapter, will guide the discussion. If you are a long-time space enthusiast or just curious as to what it’s all about we invite you to join us and add your voice to the conversation.
