Solar power in space

solar power in space
Japan is working on a plan to capture solar rays in space then beam it to land via laser beam.

Hmmm. How much power would be lost in transmission? How would you insure that no errant planes strayed into the line of transmission? And could this be used as a military weapon too?

Still, what if it did work!

  1. Funny how these Japanese apparently never have heard about the solar wind outside the earth’s magnetosphere! Want to bet how long their satellite would last?
