U.S. Navy Beams Up Energy

The U.S. Navy has revealed a plan to beam high power energy rays from Space to Earth, providing a new source of power.  The project is extremely difficult and requires a brand new form of technology that is completely unmatched.  Perhaps, the world could seen be getting its own version of the machine that was able to beam up Scotty!

Dr. Paul Jaffe, a spacecraft engineer at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, has built and tested two types of module to capture and transmit solar power.

The scheme uses a ‘sandwich’ module, which packs all the electrical components between two square panels.

The top side is a photovoltaic panel that absorbs the Sun’s rays.

An electronics system in the middle converts the energy to a radio frequency, and the bottom is an antenna that transfers the power toward a target on the ground.

The modules would be assembled in space by robots to form a one kilometer, very powerful satellite.

A second design, a ‘step’ module, modifies the sandwich design by opening it up, which allows it to receive more sunlight without overheating, thereby making it more efficient.

Even the Navy admits the plan sounds like a sci-fi plot.
