Summary
Space is once again "the new frontier," this time being traversed in pursuit of a solution to the Earth's energy woes. With "peak oil" looming and concerns about climate change growing, this video asks if solar space stations might be the answer. Imagine a vast field of solar panels orbiting the Earth and generating enough power to fuel a city; experts discuss how soon this science fiction fantasy could become reality.
