Giuseppe Maffei’s goal is to replace all forms of energy currently in use with space based solar power. The funding requirement for this life changing initiative is 10-50 million dollars.
Montreal, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/17/2014 -- Giuseppe Maffei draws inspiration for this Indiegogo Campaign from a project that he completed at Dawson College almost ten years ago. His goal is to utilize space based solar power to replace frequently used energy alternatives such as fossil fuels, nuclear power, wind power, hydroelectricity, terrestrial solar power, etc.
During the 1950s, the United States conducted a feasibility study to consider the possibility of creating a space craft that will derive its power from nuclear bombs. These highly successful tests indicated that millions of tons can be sent into space by this craft. The findings of this study form the base of Giuseppe Maffei’s project.
Technically speaking, Giuseppe’s goal is to send solar panels weighing millions of tons of into the earth's orbit. Energy captured by these panels will be transformed into microwaves and relayed to different locations on earth’s surface. These microwaves will be collected and converted into electricity by giant collecting dishes having diameters of several kilometers. While hitting the earth’s surface, these microwaves would not be dangerous like a laser beam because they will remain dispersed over a large area.
Giuseppe’s idea of creating a wireless, sustainable energy source has the potential of satisfying all the energy requirements of the world. This project’s success can bring an end to global warming and poverty even in the poorest countries.
Funding requirement for this enormous project is between 10 and 50 million dollars. If this target is achieved, a meeting will be held involving all donors to discuss ideas for the future of this project. The only risk for the project is that it needs green signal from United Nations to materialize. In addition to funding assistance, Giuseppe Maffei is also looking to spread the word with this campaign because very few people know about this technology.
This campaign will close on December 05, 2014
