Reports like this should be taken seriously but In our highly politicized world the various camps will either ignore it as its conclusions conflict with their aspirations or use it to advocate for their preferred alternative like burning fossil fuels or switching to nuclear.
Stratosolar is different than nuclear in that it lacks an advocacy group promoting its benefits. Unfortunately for nuclear, despite significant advocacy support it has lost broad political credibility and is in decline. Stratosolar is simply solar without the problems. It should be attracting support but it lacks credibility without a working proof of practicality. Unfortunately proof of practicality needs financial support which depends on proof of practicality.
