Solar Drape Concept Would Take Advantage of Lower Gravity On The Moon

Doug Plata has proposed a solar drape concept for the moon. The moon has no wind and has one-sixth Earth gravity.

A large robotic rover would place telescoping towers on the moon and thin-film solar cells that are like drapes or rectangular banners.

There would be suspension lines between the towers and would be connected the solar drapes.

After all telescoping towers are placed they would rise at the same time and lift the wall of solar power into place.
