Use the device such as satellite in space to collect effective solar power generation, the benefit of the earth's production development needs, this from the 1970 s began to attract scientists has constantly input energy of wonderful idea of scientific research, and now is expected to become a reality.
Collect the sun energy to power in space are many significant advantage, but because involves cost and technical challenges, has long been stay in science fiction stage, instant water heaterbut in the last month, who have served in the United States, NASA scientists got John mann (JohnMankins) put forward a kind of innovation management solutions, a possible solar power generation research into the new process satellite.
Mann got solutions can be understood as the surface of the device will through the satellites are collected solar energy thin film solar, film fixed in the surface of the satellite curved mirror on the array, the mirror will be sent to the sun satellite on the back of the photovoltaic cells, water heaterended its through wireless transmission to the earth. So the design of the light quality, low maintenance cost advantages, scientists think, this is a kind of be worth to expect long-term energy solutions. If in space, direct access to the energy of the sun, so can meet the global power demand in the next 30 years.solar geyser It can 24 hours a day to collect the energy of the sun to the solar power plant than the earth than half of energy collection.
Mann said jeans, the urgent task is to establish a working model solar satellites as soon as possible, in commissioning state debugging, improvement, and the next few years in long-term goal is to realize the system near-earth flight test.
