I still have my copies of the GAO reports studying Solar Power 
Satellites from forty years ago. I'm glad to see someone doing this; 
perhaps it will finally motivate the free world to develop this too. 
(I do not regard the PRC as free, although it is freer than its worst.)

If they meet the 2030 goal, how soon before they can field a gigawatt facility?
