International SunSat Design Competition

SunSat Design is an international competition intended to accelerate the design, manufacture, launch and operation of the next-generation satellites that will collect energy in space and deliver it to earth as electricity.
THE DESIGN PROJECT
This Design Project will generate visualizations to aid in the design, manufacture, launch and operation of the new types of satellites that will collect sun’s rays in space and deliver them to earth as a clean and renewable source of energy. These visualizations will also inform the public debate about the way forward for development and implementation of universal access to space-based solar power.
This Competition will link global scientific communities with university-based digital media labs for the purposes of advancing knowledge of space-based solar power technologies and illustrating their many earth-energy applications.
Winning designs will be high-impact digital art, supported by credible science, engineering and business plans, that best promote media understanding and public acceptance of a path forward in using space satellites to deliver energy on-demand to any and all places on earth.

I am a competition administrator for the International SunSat Design Competition, and I wanted to thank you for posting our competition here. I've been involved with the project for about a year now, and Dr. Flournoy, my professor and mentor, has been working on this much longer. Space Based Solar Power is something we truly believe in, and with support like this, it can become a reality.
Here are links to the competition's Twitter and Facebook page.
