Could Solar Panels in Space Solve all Our Energy Needs?


SciShow Space on Youtube is pretty interesting. Humans on earth need more solutions for our energy needs, and one idea is straight out of science fiction: Solar panels, in space.

It seems that scientists working for the Pentagon have successfully tested a solar panel the size of a pizza box in space, designed as a prototype for a future system to send electricity from space back to any point on Earth.

It seems that a solar panel in space is collecting energy that could one day be beamed to anywhere on Earth.

The panel is known as the so-called Photovoltaic Radiofrequency Antenna Module (PRAM). It was first launched in May 2020, attached to the Pentagon's X-37B unmanned drone, to harness light from the sun to convert to electricity. The drone is looping Earth every 90 minutes.

  1. Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.
