Space Solar Farm
I love solar panels, but they do have an Achilles heel… they spend most of their lives in darkness. But what if there was a way we could create solar farms in space, that could beam down this energy 24 hours a day down to Earth? What sort of efficiency might we see, and how would we send that energy down to Earth? Well, with lasers, there’s a lot more to this story! So I got a chance to meet with NTT, a Japanese R&D company planning to build just this. There is some pretty crazy engineering going on, and today we’re going to do a deep dive. Japanese Solar Space Laser Makes Hydrogen & Electricity 24/7!
