Would you be interested in being a hero?

I can supply the program, but it's beyond me to lead it.  To old for one thing.

In short, we build one power satellite the hard way with conventional
rockets or rocket planes.  The first one is used for laser propulsion,
and that drops the price of lifting parts to GEO so far that burning
fossil fuel is more expensive than power from space.  Presumable, that
ends the use of fossil fuels.

If your are not interested do you know anyone who is?
