I just had this idea/vision of panels being placed in front of the sun, then the energy collected is beamed to a receiver/transmitter orbiting Earth. I suppose with an energy 'Magnitude' of the sun, a little bit of 'loss' due to Earth's atmosphere is not a big deal but... I wondered what if you could 'saturate' the Earth's magnetosphere and then draw energy from that... instead of building a receiver on the ground of Earth. The receivers on the ground could then just point at the sky to receive power. Anyway, assuming that all of my ideas are probably wrong, like a misunderstanding... if such an idea was possible, would Earth's laws not allow someone to mess with the Magnetosphere? I just thought with radio propagation and all through space without inhibitance (haha made up words), then it isn't really necessary to transport panels close to the sun.
