With that as backstory, take a peek at the real-world progress. This next site went down this morning just as we were going to share it with you… but it seems back up now (ymmv). Scroll down halfway on this link to read of the announced UK funding:

“If we continue to ignore satellite power as a goal of our space program, satellite power is not going to be forgotten.

Founder, First President of the Space Studies Institute
