The plan is to turn the moon into a solar power plant

Visionaries plan to turn the moon into huge solar power plant Japanese visionaries at construction firm Shimizu Corporation take that saying "Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood" literally, with six of the boldest megaprojects ever imagined. Topping the list is Luna Ring, a lunar solar power plant. It's a 6,800 mile belt of solar panels built around the moon's equator, whose power is transmitted back to Earth using microwave and laser wizardry.
