The present paper is the review of current situation in space solar cell engineering. The comparison of the more popular GaAs, AlGaAs, InGaP and InP solar cell parameters, as well as their variation with temperature rise, radiation treatments and improving design have been represented. The typical working conditions for solar cells on the space orbit and requirements for solar cells are analysed. The modem international space projects, applied new types of III-V material solar cells, have discussed as well.
