Goals

The following goals, milestones and metrics are put forth by Citizens for Space-Based Solar Power (C-SBSP) as stretch goals to motivate citizens, government and industry leaders into meaningful action. They are closely related to some of the goals outlined in the recently published National Space Security Office study, Space-Based Solar Power as an Opportunity for Strategic Security.

The C-SBSP goals and metrics are put forth as a roadmap to guide the content and direction of this site, and as a way to measure its relative success.

    War must end. Competition must end. Waste must end.

    Peace must begin. Cooperation must begin. Bounty must begin.

    Individual exploration must begin. Colonization of space must begin.

    Capitalism must end. Poverty must end. Greed must end.

    Selflessness must begin. Equality must begin. Compassion must begin.

    Being rich must end. Being poor must end. Premature death must end.

    Clean free energy must begin. Naturalism must begin.

    Life must begin, again.
