harvesting the orbital energy of planets
I am not a physicist I am not a mathematician, I just have a lot of spare time.
Planets orbiting the sun and moons orbiting the planets create kinetic energy, right?
So my idea is:
We could harvest the energy of our planets orbit or even better send satellites to orbit the earth and harvest their kinetic energy and send with microwaves to power plants on earth ( I know that transmitting energy with microwaves is possible with the HAARP project).
The problem is that I cant think of a way to harvest that energy.
One idea is that since the earth magnetic field is not the same everywhere and the satellite is passing through them, they could somehow create energy.
I know its not much and I know its probably impossible but I couldn't hold myself from posting this. I am sorry if I wasted your time in anyway.
