ABSTRACT
The article focuses on space solar power (SSP), the concept of obtaining solar energy in space from the Sun and beaming it to earth as part of electric power production. Research presented at the 2012 International Astronautical Congress on SSP is examined including research on microwave power transmission and the use of retrodirective phased array in artificial satellites used to transmit solar energy.
