Scientists Transmit Power Through Air

A group of Japanese scientists have succeeded in transmitting energy wirelessly in space, a new step toward developing new means for the mankind to use solar energy.

Researchers at The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have managed to deliver 1.8 kilowatts of power through microwaves to 55 meters away, said a JAXA spokesman.

“This was the first time anyone has managed to send a high output of nearly two kilowatts of electric power via microwaves to a small target, using a delicate directivity control device,” he said.

The agency has been active in developing new methods of using solar energy in space, a source which has many advantages over solar power use on earth.
