Solar insolation in space
Was watching the NASA Channel last night and one segment they were talking about the solar panels they use to create electricity in space. While they didn't mention it , it piqued my curiosity as to how much insolation they can get in the vacuum of space. In perfect and exceptional situations we can get 12-1300 watts per square meter, maybe more on earth. Anybody know what they get in space?
