- NASA’s IRIS spots nanojets: Shining light on heating the solar coronaon September 21, 2020 at 3:55 pm
Researchers report the first ever clear images of nanojets — bright thin lights that travel perpendicular to the magnetic structures in the solar atmosphere, called the corona — in a process that reveals the existence of one of the potential coronal heating candidates: nanoflares.
- Researcher analyzes the use of solar energy at US airportson September 21, 2020 at 3:55 pm
By studying 488 public airports in the United States, researchers found that 20% of them have adopted solar photovoltaic (PV), commonly known as solar panels, over the last decade.
- Mirror-like photovoltaics get more electricity out of heaton September 21, 2020 at 3:16 pm
New heat-harnessing ‘solar’ cells that reflect 99% of the energy they can’t convert to electricity could help bring down the price of storing renewable energy as heat, as well as harvesting waste heat from exhaust pipes and chimneys.
