Default Solar-pumped laser power transmission, a way to dramaticallydecrease launch costs?

You start with

Laser Power Transmission

And use it to expand the energy markets

Solar Power - Entering the Market - alkanes - protons - photons

Initially Put Up with Chemical Powered Spacecraft

transitioning to

Laser Powered Spacecraft

Your research and subsequent arguments are entirely worth considering,
but it seems few if anyone cares, other than to topic/author stalk and
bash for all they can muster.

My Google Groups weekly average following is currently "4964 views of
your messages", and that obviously doesn't include outside readers
that are likely worth 90+% of what this greater global Usenet/
newsgroup audience has to offer.

btw, Selene L1 is worthy of being solar illuminated roughly 97% of the
time, and a tethered dipole element could extend a substantial
platform of laser cannons and/or microwave transmitters safely to
within 2r of Earth (closer if you'd dare). Of course there should
also be a substantial tether anchoring this Selene L1 array of solar
collectors to the lunar surface, exactly as I'd specified years ago
for my LSE-CM/ISS that you and others opposed at every turn and on
every possible grounds.

Is there any chance we can work together on behalf of any of this?
