How Japan Plans to Build an Orbital Solar Farm
"It’s been the subject of many previous studies and the stuff of sci-fi for decades, but space-based solar power could at last become a reality—and within 25 years, according to a proposal from researchers at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The agency, which leads the world in research on space-based solar power systems, now has a technology road map that suggests a series of ground and orbital demonstrations leading to the development in the 2030s of a 1-gigawatt commercial system—about the same output as a typical nuclear power plant."

Hey everyone, can we help a Senior Center go solar? Would be a great way for them to cut costs, and hopefully lead to more money being spent on care for the residents. You can support them for free just by adding your name!

Help the Stephen Gaynor School in New York put solar on their roof. 
For every 50 people who donate, Mosaic will pledge $100 to Stephen Gaynor School to go solar, along with a free quote from a trusted Mosaic installer. What a great project to get involved with. Click here to donate: https://joinmosaic.com/solar/new-york/new-york/stephen-gaynor-school-153772
