On Monday April 13, 2020, the US Naval Research Lab officially announced that power beaming was successfully experimented on the International Space Station (ISS), proving that wireless power transfer works in space. While still onboard the ISS, NASA Astronaut Jessica Meir recorded a LEctenna experiment for STEM students showing how power beaming can eventually […]Read More LEctenna Demonstration on the International Space Station.
For over a decade, NASA and other government agencies have been warning the world about global climate change and its potential effects, which may include more severe hurricanes. In the last 20 years, hurricanes have devastated the US causing “$329.9 billion and 3,318 fatalities,” (Smith) and have become more frequent and stronger. In turn, a good […]Read More Interview with Bruce Morton regarding his Solar Power Satellite-Hurricane Prevention Concept.
Last year, I blogged about California wildfires & global warming. In a short and sweet message to you: California is in a state of extreme red flag conditions and , Solar Power Satellites (SPS), power beaming as well as other advanced solar concepts are key to fixing so many issues we all face today. First and foremost, implement […]Read More Power Beaming Solutions for California Wildfires.

A few weeks ago, I learned that Elon Musk wrote a college research paper about Space-Based Solar Power…I couldn’t believe it. Today, I checked out “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for a Fantastic Future” biography by Ashlee Vance and read the following: “Musk’s longtime interest in solar power and in finding other new […]Read More Elon Musk’s Space Solar College Paper = Fantastic!
Earlier this month, Caltech Ph.D. Grad Student, Jacob Reher, gave us, Base 11 AMP (Aerospace Mentorship Program) students, a fantastic tour of the Caltech Advanced Mechanical Bipedal Experimental Robotics LAB also known as the AMBER LAB. Jacob showed us the semi-autonomous experimental robot Cassie (see photo below), prosthetic/exoskeleton designs and nonlinear and hybrid systems. Photo of […]Read More Caltech AMBER Lab Tour.
Today, was another beautiful day at the Base 11 Caltech AMP (Aerospace Mentorship Program). The impressive Caltech Ph.D. Candidate, Joel Lawson, educated all of us about algorithms/coding using Anaconda in the wonderful Kármán Conference Room (dedicated to Theodore von Kármán).We also took another lab tour with Caltech Graduate, Morgan Hooper, as well as listened to […]Read More Caltech Coding Experience
Nikola Tesla, invented so many complex innovations that we still don’t completely understand all of them today. Some of his inventions, could not work because the materials used or available to him at that time, were too heavy. Unfortunately, Nikola Tesla didn’t live in the age of advanced lightweight, self-healing materials, such as the “extremely promising” […]Read More Shape-Shifting Liquid Metal…T-1000?
CASSIOPeiA is by far my favorite Solar Power Satellite, it is both beautifully designed and highly efficient. International Electric’s inspiring CASSIOPeiA stands for Constant Aperture, Solid-State, Integrated, Orbital, Phased Array. Earlier this month, CASSIOPeiA Engineer, Ian Cash, presented his SPS at the 69th International Astronautical Congress in Bremen, Germany and wowed the audience. The CASSIOPeiA […]Read More CASSIOPeiA Solar Power Satellite.
Out of hundreds of applications, only eleven students including myself, were selected to participate in the Base 11 Caltech Aerospace Mentorship Program (AMP). Monday, was our first intro day and we got to tour Caltech! Coolest people and institution ever! Here in the photo is Caltech Grad, Chris Dougherty, giving us a tour of the […]Read More First Day at the Caltech AMP.
