Caption: Solar power satellite. Artwork of a future solar power satellite in geostationary Earth orbit. The Moon is seen at top right. This solar power satellite consists of large mirrors that are focusing sunlight on collectors that harness the energy. This energy is sent back to Earth as laser or microwave beams. Two astronauts are engaged in a space walk from a Lockheed Martin VentureStar spacecraft (upper right). VentureStar was a proposed Space Shuttle replacement that was cancelled in 2001.
