Next Big Future has a report on Keith Henson's latest paper on SBS
systems. One new idea is using Skylon type transport to get material
into space using an air-breathing engine phase followed by GEO based

Keith Henson has a new paper on Space based solar power satellites. It
is called Rays of Hope: Propulsion lasers to get parts up, Microwaves
to get energy down and the effect of large-scale deployment of power
satellites on CO2.
