Japanese Space Solar Power

Japanese Space Solar Power
Conventional solar panels have two main problems: 1) Solar energy bounces off the atmosphere, especially on cloudy days, and 2) they provide zero power at night.
Thats why Japanese engineers have proposed to put solar collectors in geostationary orbit, some 22,300 miles/35,700 km in space, where they'll get direct sunlight 24 hours a day, and beam the energy back to earth using microwaves. They expect to be able to achieve this within the next 30 years.
