Chinese scientists unveiling plans to create the first solar power station in space.
Orbiting the earth at 36,000 kilometres, a solar power station could trap sun’s energy, without interference from the atmosphere and night-time loss of sunlight.
Space-based clean energy shows that China is using more sophisticated methods in renewable energy.
The biggest problem for the space based power plant, is how to get the energy back down to Earth.
The scientists are planing to launch a test facility before 2025.
