Track: Space Solar Power

The theme for the Space Solar Power track is Space Solar Power - making the option(s) real. Space solar power has gained attention worldwide recently. Space activity is advancing rapidly. Many nations are contributing, and our speakers come from all over the globe. We welcome your attention and interest at this historic event. Who should attend? You. And your friends and colleagues. Space solar power is multi-disciplinary. It's really, really hard. We're all working on how to make the engineering scale, the infrastructure available, the regime established, and the business case closed. The reason you should attend is that we're getting it figured out at last. You will learn about multiple architectures, analyses, and enabling technologies, each driving towards abundant, clean, affordable sun power. This is the kind of convergence you see right before a major breakthrough.
