British astronaut enthusiastically backs space solar farms as a bright future for clean energy

Renowned British astronaut Tim Peake enthusiastically endorses the prospect of solar farms in space, hailing it as an increasingly feasible endeavor. With the cost of launching heavy payloads into orbit plummeting, Peake believes that space-based solar power farms are on the brink of becoming a reality.

The European Space Agency (ESA) is actively exploring this concept, with the aim of presenting a viable business case to the EU by 2025. Peake highlights the key financial threshold of $1,000 per kilogram for launches, which is becoming achievable thanks to innovative rockets like SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy and Starship. This visionary technology promises clean, limitless energy and could potentially revolutionize our power supply.
