DailyTech – One Lightbulb Project Hopes to Launch in 2010

Project hopes to send enough solar power from space to a ground station to illuminate one lightbulb

Solar power is great in that it can generate virtually free power from the energy of the sun. The catch is that existing solar power equipment isn’t particularly effective at capturing and turning the suns energy into electricity.

The concept of an orbiting satellite gathering power from space and beaming it down to the ground to power devices on Earth may sound like science fiction, but that is exactly what the One Lightbulb project hopes to accomplish.
