A start-up aims to revolutionize clean energy by harnessing unlimited solar energy from space. To make this futuristic idea a reality, Michigan-based start-up Virtus Solis aims to use SpaceX’s Starship. 

If successful, this space-based solar farm will offer electricity to all areas on Earth at any time. 

Space-based solar generating infrastructure, like orbiting arrays, or solar tiles-based satellites, require low-cost access to space. This is where SpaceX’s Starship comes in.
