    If something is spherical, why does it have to be rotated?

    Good estimate for US solar irradiance on a PV panel --- 190watts/m2

    Good estimate for LUNAR irradiance on a PV panel --- 0.001watt/m2

    It's not happening. More LUNACY and hype.. Even IF you concentrated it 10,000 times (I doubt that) --- it would generate 1/20 of peak daytime power --- IF the spectral composition was the same ((It is not)).

    Sadly -- I'm a huge skeptic again..

    Best part of this article were the comments.

    "a little hope" and sharing.. THAT'S what science and engineering are missing..

    And WHEN this idea "DISAPPEARS" (tomorrow) --- the whole generation of conspiracy mongers will be rewarded for their efforts.
