The concept of space-based solar power was first proposed by Dr. Peter Glaser in 1968 and since then the Space Based Power Station Technology (SBPST) has become the newest jargon that has proclaimed its presence in the technical arena. SBPST is a technology that harnesses the sunâ?™s energy twenty-four hours a day that works not only when we have daylight, but also at night, during rain or snow and even on cloudy days. This technique is based on a more efficient way to gather solar energy by launching satellites into orbit around the Earth, where the satellites can capture solar energy, change it into another wavelength and send it to Earth where power stations convert it into usable electricity. All solution options to these challenges should be explored, including opportunities from space. This paper presents a novel space based power station that harnesses the space based power unlike traditional contracted architecture studies. The proposed concept relies on electronic hardware compiled through an innovative and collaborative approach that relies heavily upon interdisciplinary approach to power generation and utilization. The proposed work aims to move the power generation technology beyond the nuclear power generation and seek answer to the question of whether SBPST can be developed and deployed to provide affordable, clean, safe, reliable, sustainable and expandable energy for mankind.
