Nyack, NY, October 8, 2007 – A National Security Space Office (NSSO)-led study group, which has been investigating space-based solar power (SBSP) as a way to reduce our dependence on foreign-controlled energy supplies as well as a clean, renewable and carbon-neutral solution to the possibility of global warming, is set to announce the study results on October 10th. The study also examined the feasibility of SBSP as a source of energy to be transmitted to military forces deployed overseas.

A press event sponsored by the NSS will announce the SBSP study results, as well as the existence of a new alliance to support the development of this promising technology, as follows:

Date:
Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Time:
9:00am-10:30am

Location:

The Frontier Enabling Test
Our definition of a "frontier enabling" technology or policy is one which has as its effect the acceleration of the creation of low cost access to the space frontier for private citizens and companies, enables or accelerates our use of space resources, and/or accelerates the rate at which wealth can be generated in space. In other words, is the project or policy going to provide a return on the national investment, if we define "return" to be the economically sustainable human habitation of space?
