Obama transition team seeks comment on space solar power — Space Solar Power (SSP) - A Solution for Energy Independence & Climate Change. Paper prepared and submitted by the Space Frontier Foundation and other space advocates, calls for the new Administration to make development of Space Solar Power a national priority. The SSP white paper was among the first ten released by the Obama transition team.

If you support it, now is the time to go there and show that you do. The current debate on the page is rampant with ridiculously uninformed assumptions and misconceptions. Example: fear of a monopoly on sunlight, fear of burning a hole in the atmosphere, fear of using an SPS as a giant death beam, etc etc. They are just plain hilarious but please try to keep a straight face when responding.
