Creating and Managing a Nationwide Student Movement Peter J. Schubert, IUPUI Solar energy beamed from orbiting power satellites could be the ultimate form of renewable energy. Space Solar Power (SSP) advocates explore many architectures, but the field lacks consensus. A research organization has been formed to unify and optimize SSP architecture objectively. The challenge is engaging all 170 SSP researchers nationwide. This paper discusses the creation of a new student organization to become the coordinating body for a nationwide student movement. Activities are coordinated via webinar in a manner intended to be self‐organizing. The project culminates with students lobbying Congress in support of SSP.
