Meeting future energy demands in the global society may depend on the development of solar power satellites, at least if these authors have their way! This book explores the need for such satellites based on wireless power transmission.

This is the first, and perhaps the only book, devoted specifically to this topic. In this second edition, the contributors examine the status of applicable technologies, health and safety considerations as well as economic and legal issues. This book is designed for professional scientists and lay persons concerned with the environment and energy policy.

Dr. Glaser, the editor, is a distinguished member of the International Astronautics Federation.
