One thought on “Frickin’ Laser Beams to Power Japan”

  1. The idea of putting up solar collectors and beaming the energy back from orbit isn’t precisely new. Kudos to the Japanese, though, if they can pull it off, even in a “demonstration” model.

    The biggest practical problem, as always, has been the high cost of getting stuff, including the solar collectors, up there, and then servicing them as needed.
