Station power source idea. ¶
After reading about the diamond batties, I thought about the solar winds. We could build Dyson-Harrop satellite/s and depending on the length of the collector wire and sail completely power the station using the charged electrons from the solar winds. WE could also have something alon the lines of Tesla's Power Wall batteries (not saying those in particular) as a storage unit. We could then have the Diamond batteries when the technology has matured and is capable of power generation as a backup generator option. As far as the satellite, we could use a wire about 600 meters long with a sail of about 300 meters long. Then instead of having an IR laser transmit the power to the station we could have a hard wired connection instead depending on the obit of the station and if it is static or geo-synchronised. also if we have two satellites the same same size at polar obits then the stattoo would have power from either or both if the IR laser transmitted power is instead utilized. BUT I have only been able to find limited info on the Dyson-Harrop satellite so my understanding of it is limited. Just thought of it as an idea.
