Could solar panels in space solve all our energy needs?

SciShow Space on Youtube is quite interesting. Human beings on earth need more solutions for our energy needs and an idea came straight out of science fiction: solar panels, in space.

Scientists working for the Pentagon appear to have successfully tested a solar panel the size of a pizza box in space, designed as a prototype for a future system to send electricity from space to any point on Earth.

It appears that a solar panel in space is harvesting energy that could one day be transmitted to any point on Earth.

The panel is known as the so-called photovoltaic radio frequency antenna module (PRAM). It was first launched in May 2020, connected to the Pentagon’s X-37B unmanned drone, to harness sunlight to convert it into electricity. The drone circles the Earth every 90 minutes.
