1. The Space Power Grid (SPG) architecture illustrated in this visualization represents  an evolutionary approach to realizing the global dream of Space Solar Power (SSP).

    The Georgia Tech approach to SPG concentrates on helping terrestrial power plants become viable, aligning with public policy priorities. It enables a real-time power exchange through space to help locate new plants at ideal but remote sites, smooth supply fluctuations, reach high-valued markets, and achieve baseload status.

    Over time, this approach will enable other architectures and applications of space solar power.

The Online Journal of Space Communication is a cross-disciplinary scholarly publication designed to advance space communication as a profession and as an academic discipline.

The Journal is distributed electronically without charge to users on a global basis. New editions to the Journal will be released three times a year. Individual issues will provide in-depth examination of matters of importance to satellite and space communication in terms of:

-Education and Manpower Development
-Innovation and Technology
-Economy and Business Development
-Services and Applications
-Regulation and Public Policy
-Social Impact
-Regional Development

The Journal's goal is to become a credible record and repository for developments of public significance in satellite and space communication, and to promote critical analysis of those developments.

Each Journal issue will be designed to make complex historical, technical, economic, regulatory and social issues more accessible and understandable.

All articles are peer-reviewed with ancillary materials and historical perspectives included to stimulate discussion and set a future agenda.
