Data Clippers to Set Sail to Enhance Future Planetary Missions

A new golden age of sailing may be about to begin — in space. Future missions to explore the outer planets could employ fleets of ‘data-clippers’ — manoeuvrable spacecraft equipped with solar sails, to ship vast quantities of scientific data to back Earth. The technology could be ready in time to support mid-term missions to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

Funneling Solar Energy: Antenna Made of Carbon Nanotubes Could Make Photovoltaic Cells More Efficient

Using carbon nanotubes (hollow tubes of carbon atoms), chemical engineers have found a way to concentrate solar energy 100 times more than a regular photovoltaic cell. Such nanotubes could form antennas that capture and focus light energy, potentially allowing much smaller and more powerful solar arrays.

DIY Solar Panels-Build Your Own Solar Panels?

DIY SOLAR PANELS – Solar panels are expensive to install. But with rising energy bills, DIY solar panels are looking increasingly attractive. Making your own solar panels might the answer.

Finding Earth 4 Energy’s video and ebook course, I wondered if building my own solar panels was something that I could do. Their claim is that their course “allows the average person to explore solar and wind power.”

The course consists of 9 professional-quality videos. There’s also an ebook as well.

First things first. The safety advice is excellent. Electricity is dangerous and deserves respect. The safety video taught me everything I need to know to stay safe.
