Japan wants a 1GW Solar Station in space!
They’re done all they can to show that the tiny cranium that man has been blessed with is capable of more things that even the Gods of Greece thought about. So we have this cool solar space station that will generate about 1GW power. Thanks to a joint venture by Mitsubishi Electric Corp and IHI Corp, this may well seem to be a reality in the near future. What’s more is that they have the backing of almost a dozen more companies who share the excitement of realizing this dream venture. So far the project has got an approval for just 200 MW power purchase from state regulators.
The Japanese Space Solar Project is can not be made possible for now because of budget restraints however a little waiting can yield good results for enthusiasts.
