To the Moon, Alice!

Testimony of Dr. David R. Criswell, Director, Institute for Space Systems Operations, University of Houston, before the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space Hearings: "Lunar Exploration"
Thursday, November 6, 2003, 2:30 PM – SR-253

By 2050…solar power from the Moon could provide everyone clean, affordable, and sustainable electric power…Solar power bases will…collect a small fraction of the Moon's dependable solar power…power beams…will…deliver lunar solar power to receivers on Earth. On Earth each power beam will be transformed into electricity and distributed…each power beam is restricted to 20%, or less, of the intensity of noontime sunlight…The Lunar Solar Power (LSP) System does not require basic new technological developments.
