Hosted by

The idea of getting energy from solar collectors in space has been around for a long time, but now the California Public Utilities Commission has given the green light to launch a real project as soon as 2016.  It'll cost billions, but Pacific Gas & Electric claims there's no risk to current customers. Todd Woody covers technology and the environment for the New York Times and other publications.
