Go-getter Saudi Arabia is backing a power-packed, pun intended, the British plan to capture solar power in space and radiate it to Earth 24 hours a day. The pathbreaking project by UK-based Space Solar Ltd implicates positioning solar panels into Earth’s orbit and successfully converting electricity into high-frequency radio waves transmitted to the surface. A net-like antenna on Earth would receive this energy and convert the waves into electricity. The plan could effectively power the eco-conscious $1 trillion futuristic Neom City. With Space Solar Ltd working with Neom, towns, cities, sports, tourist destinations, and entertainment centers will function with the minimum carbon footprint.
