Chinese Academy of space technology works on the concept of orbital power stations that will collect solar energy in space at an altitude of 36 000 kilometres and send it to the Ground. This writes The Sydney Morning Herald.
If the work of the earth’s plants depends on the time of day and weather conditions, the outer panels will be able to receive uninterrupted solar energy always. The main problem is how to send the collected energy to the Ground. While scientists propose to do this in the form of microwaves or laser radiation.
The weight of the plant will be about 1,000 tons. For comparison, the ISS weighs 400 tons. Now researchers are studying whether we will manage to assemble a station in space with robots and 3D printing, not trying to lift as heavy construction with Earth.
It is expected that the first test will be up in orbit 2025. If she will show herself well well, the Chinese plan to launch larger and more powerful machines by 2050.
