Space-Based Solar Technology Feasible Within 30 Years, Study Says

14 Nov 2011: Space-Based Solar Technology Feasible Within 30 Years, Study Says An international group of scientists says space-based solar plants could help meet the world’s energy needs within 30 years if governments are willing to provide the early funding. Space-based solar Solar Power from Space: Moving Beyond Science Fiction For decades, scientists have dreamed of collecting the sun’s energy in space and beaming it back to Earth. Now, Michael Lemonick writes, a host of technological advances may be bringing that vision close to reality. READ THE e360 REPORT technology, in which satellites are launched into space to collect the Sun’s energy and beam it back to Earth, could be “technically feasible” within two decades, according to the new study by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA). But, while the study does not offer a cost estimate for such a project, it...
