Lowering launch costs is critical for developing space solar power. Keith Henson at The Oil Drum proposes using Reaction Engine’s Skylon Rocket in a novel way: the  second stage propulsion would be hydrogen heated by an array of  ground-based lasers.

* Random quote

You see in this dome the intermingling of native and earth plants. Outside, they are competitors, struggling over the trace elements required for life. Often, one destroys the other. Here, they are tended with care and kept well nourished. They thrive together, and the native fungus does not unleash its terrible defenses. As you can see, competition is unnecessary when resources are plentiful and population growth is controlled.
~ Lady Deirdre Skye ‘Planet Dreams’
