A Californian company is aiming to capture sunlight in space to generate a regular supply of electricity on Earth.
There are significant obstacles to overcome, like the high cost of launching things into space, but California's largest utility has already agreed to buy the power.
I know that this has been proposed as a possibility for large scale power generation for many years, but according to this new article it seems that at least one power company is very serious about getting this up and running in the very near future.
Any thoughts on this? Do you think it will be successful?
