It’s older than Earth itself!
Hang in there, buddy!
A step in the right direction.
The findings might revolutionize our understanding of how the solar system came to be, as well as all planetary bodies for that matter.
Flares like this one are powerful enough to turn the planet into a hellscape.
It’s more profitable to start deploying new solar now than operating currently existing coal or nuclear plants.
Going 100% renewable eliminates 4-7 million air pollution deaths each year and creates 24 million long-term, full-time jobs.
Power from thin-ish air!
A huge concentrated solar power plant might open in Nevada, 2020 onward.
Power from thin air. Lots and lots of power.
This huge area will finally produce energy — 30 years after the meltdown.
Not much bigger than an apartment building, 2016 HO3 has been confirmed as Earth’s newest satellite.
A little ship braving the ocean on its own.
A few days ago, India’s Energy Minister Piyush Goyal announced that solar energy became cheaper to produce than coal-powered, costing roughly 6 US cents/kWh. Now, it’s become even cheaper: the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) received the lowest ever asking price for solar energy, at US 2.99 cents/kWh.
Every picture you’re likely to see of it shows planets and moons too close together prevents you from getting a feel of the size of our solar system. A group of friends plans to change that, however.
Wood, one of the cheapest and most widely used construction materials humanity has ever employed, has just had its range of uses expanded; Researchers at Stockholm’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a method of turning wood transparent that’s suitable for mass production.
The largest floating solar array in the world is to be unveiled later this month, on the Queen Elizabeth II reservoir, at Walton-on-Thames. The array is estimated to generate almost 6 million kWh in its maiden year of operations. The energy will be used to power London’s water treatment plants.
An MIT research team has developed a new technology that will allow for the creation of lighter and thinner solar cells than ever before. While the team says there is still work to be done before making them commercially available, the panels already proved their efficacy in laboratory settings. They hope that their work will power the next generation of portable
