Dyson–Harrop satellites: harvesting energy from the solar wind

Post by funkervogt »

I didn't realize an energy source other than photons could be harnessed from the Sun.



Given the problems with beaming the energy produced by a Dyson-Harrop satellite to the Earth's surface, it seems they would be much better as power sources for space-based infrastructure.

Can Dyson-Harrop satellites work with solar Dyson Swarm satellites somehow?
