Space Solar Power
Envisioned by Peter Glaser in 1968 as
a space-based solution to transmit solar power to earth, space solar power
offers the world a virtually limitless green energy source as well as
possible solutions to the energy needs of space operations. Despite the
promise, however, space solar power has not developed at pace with other
high-profile space technologies. This will (and needs to) change in the
coming decades if humans are to effectively enter a green energy future as
well as support a permanent presence beyond Earth
How can we harness the sun’s
limitless energy to enable the technologies that support the accelerating
needs associated with power consumption, and what technologies need to
mature to get us to a space solar power “tipping point”? What are the
economic, geopolitical, and policy implications of Space Solar Power?
Please join us Thursday, November
17th for an informative virtual panel discussion and Q&A session with
Mike Snead and Nik Joseph, two experts in the field of Space Solar Power,
moderated by Courtney A. Stadd.
For those who may not be familiar
with Space Solar Power, the attached videos give a good background on the
technology and implications.
SSPI Mid-Atlantic Chapter is regional chapter of the Space
and Satellite Professionals International with the purpose of promoting
professionalism and education by individuals within all aspects of the
satellite and aerospace industries, promoting science, technology,
engineering and mathematics education among school-age and working age
individuals, and fostering the entry of individuals into the satellite and
