China to Build World's First Solar Power Station in Space in Next Five Years China is planning to build the world’s first solar power station in space, with researchers hoping to launch the first small-scale prototypes between 2021 and 2025. Pang Zhihao, a researcher working on the project, said the station could provide mankind with an “inexhaustible source of clean energy,” supplying energy at a reliable rate of 99 percent of the time.
