The innovation of a satellite that transmits solar energy to anywhere on Earth


The US Navy has launched a small satellite that can generate solar energy from Earth’s orbit, and broadcast it to anywhere in the world. According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, the satellite is a solar panel the size of a pizza box linked to a drone, launched in May 2020. It orbits the Earth every 90 minutes and turns sunlight into enough electricity to power an iPad. The solar panel is designed to capture sunlight at a higher power from space before it passes through the atmosphere that weakens it, which could be vital in creating a new global wireless energy network. According to the device’s creators, this mini-experiment is a first step in generating solar energy from orbit before Send it to any point on earth.

“As far as we know, this experiment is the first orbital test for devices specifically designed to generate solar energy in Earth’s orbit, and it could play a revolutionary role in our future in the energy field,” said Paul Jaffe, lead researcher in the program called Bram. Some insights into space solar power that matches or exceeds the largest power plants today – several gigawatts – and that’s enough for a city … the unique feature that solar satellites have over any other source of energy is global portability, you can send the energy to Chicago and then In a split second, if you need, send it to London or Brasilia instead. ” The US Navy has not disclosed any details about timelines or technology costs. Experts believe that technology that combines remote transmission of electricity and generating solar energy, could allow in the future to deliver electricity to anywhere in the world without the need for a gigantic and expensive infrastructure on the ground. .
