Case for Space Solar Power, The

While the idea of space based solar power has been with us for decades, Mankins has tied in some new approaches and the lower launch costs that are now available. Economies of scale are a large part of his concept. Instead of making gigantic structures where there are a relatively small number of huge components, Mankins advocates building SBSP using huge numbers of identical modules. This will reduce costs & simplify maintenance.
