A recent study conducted by International Acadamy of Astronautics which is placed in Paris reveled that the technology required for placing solar panels in space to generate electricity will be available in 10 to 20 years.
Another independent study conducted by a NASA veteran Mr.John Mankins also add solid proof to the fact stated by International Acadamy of Astronautics and Mankins believes that SBSP is an ideal option to the world which is overdependent on its oil resources. Below...

Solar power from Space this might sound like a interesting technology from a sci-fi Hollywood movie. Such kind of giant leaps and projects are required to satisfy the ever power hungry world.
According to John C. Mankins manger of Advanced Concepts Studies Office of Space Flight (NASA) , Space solar power project is capable of meeting the every growing energy needs of millions of people. When inquired about the feasibility of this mammoth project he stated that
“SSP can be d...

Producing electricity from solar panels placed in space can provide a costeffective way to meet the ever growing energy crisis .
This technically challenging power production project can be made a feasible one in a decade or two says IIA ( International Academy of Astronautics ) which is headquartered in Paris. In addition it also states that if this project is implemented successfully by a nation then it can become a global leader in the world power market .
Recent happenings have cl...

In the previous posts Chinese ambitious Space Solar Power Station wasdiscussed . And also the Chinese aspirations to become global energy supplier.
Hence they have planed a 4 step execution to proceed with this .
Currently the execution of this space solar power has just taken a baby step and it is still in the infant stage . The four stages of execution of this Space Based Solar Power are as follows .
Stage I: 2011 -2020
In this phase CAST(China's Space Exploration company - gove...

Space based Solar Power project is a very promising long term technology option that can power the they canworld . But an interesting prospectus in this SBSP technology is also be used to enhance and further improve the security of a nation . Japan , China , US , India and EU which are pioneers in the space exploration have realized the immense potential this Space Solar Power Project has in store for them .
The most crucial challenges that needs to be addressed are
Development of reu...

India and US had made significant collaboration on space . Among manyfields both India and US have collaboration space has been on the most significant one for more than a decade now . China has been keenly watching the Indo- US proceedings and on its side it is making a significant progress on the Space Based Solar Power Project . As China learnt about the immense benefit that Solar power project can deliver to the most populous nation in the world it has very recently reveled ed its plan t...

United states was the first nation to invent the aeroplane but it realized thereal potential of these air planes only when the then European powers seized the opportunities.United states has been the pioneer in many industry but it seems that it is loosing the grip in the case of Space Based Solar Power to china .
Many may wonder " What is wrong if Chinese showcase themselves with SBSP ? " . Many believe that this mammoth Space based Solar Power project is a pipe fiction and wont be a success...

This is an interesting application of the Space solar power technology in the Military and defense equipment . Space Radars are the radars which are stationed in space in low orbit to track the movement of enemy movementand infiltration this kind of monitoring helps a nation to keep a broad eye on its enemy better than ground based radar as these ground based radars has limits regarding its versatility . But the main problem in Space radars is powering these Radars positioned in space . A hug...

In the year 2008 Pakistan government temporarily suspended the kyber pass the route that is used by the US and UN to transport the essentials to its forces in Afghanistan . The main issue is not ammunition or food these things can be airlifted but the real problem is transporting fuel . Since then US military has thought of an idea to implement Space based solar power and so there is no need to depend on nations like Pakistan to transport power and energy .
In the year 2008 National sec...

It is a well know fact that solar panel is the one that powers the satellites and space station that revolve around the earth. All the geostationary satellites they point towards the sun . And they can produce more solar power than what they can in the ground as the efficiency of the sun is far higher in space and also they are year round.
Each panel is made up of many tiny individual cells .And each of these individual cells produce a small amount of energy when all these energy are place t...
