The first experiment to transmit power to Earth from space could lead to a space-based solar power station within 10 years, according to one of the researchers involved.

Such a station would benefit from greater exposure to the sun, due to the lack of clouds and atmosphere along with the ability to avoid nighttime darkness. However, the difficulty of designing and making structures large enough to be useful but light enough to launch by rocket has made such a facility impractical.
