Space (TGW) – A landmark in space based solar power will be announced Friday, long-distance, solar-powered wireless power transmission.
John C. Mankins, former manager of NASA's Exploration Systems Research and Technology Program, will announce the success of a transmission project in Hawaii. In the test, wireless power transmission between two Hawaiian Islands 148 kilometers apart – more than twice distance from Earth to space – was successful.
The project will be featured in an hour long special on Discovery Project Earth on the Discovery Channel on ambitious geo-engineering ideas to fight global warming.
In space based solar power, large satellites would collect solar energy and beam it down to Earth.
