The Kingdom Keepers's curator insight, December 9, 2013 8:10 AM

I think that if we can find a cheap yet well put together plan, then this is a way to get energy while keeping our planet more safe for future generations. While, there are still many issues that need to be worked on, if we can get people to work on this and find a way to fix these problems, then collecting solar power from space can be a very useful strategy to save our planet now so it can be more safe for our future generations.
