Alternitive energy source: Dyson-Harrop satellite
So I read this rudimentary stub om wikipedia about a theoretical satalite that would use a electrified wire to pull electrons from solar wind. From there the elctrons would be used to create electricity to power an infared laser that would transfer the remaining particles downto earth. On earth the electrons would be used to create electricity that we could use to power most things on earth.
According to the theory, as the satellite growsnin size, sodoes the amount of electrons accumulated and by extension, the amount of electricity produced. One theory suggested that this design could produce between 10x and 100x the amount ofenergy currently used onthe planet, anda small one could be used to power almost 1000 homes.
And yet we never hear about this idea. This should be implamented imediately. It is a completely safe, free, and efficient way of producing electricity in large quantitys, with none of the draw backs of wind, solar, geothermal, coal, or nuclear methods accept for the size factor. So long as the satellite panels face the sun, they never have to be turned off because it is 1. Self sustaining, and 2. The sun isalmost always pumping out solarwind.
I also heard a theory to put one of these satelites in the Van-Allan belt, which is just a large accumulation of the nessacery particles
