Carbon Nanotube Solar Panels

Solar panels are the most widely used form of green energy. When it comes to electrical output, they’re typically only twenty percent efficient. This causes solar arrays to take up a massive amount of area to maximize their power output. Solar panels also become less efficient when overheating. It’s a huge problem that the goContinue reading “Carbon Nanotube Solar Panels”

Artificial Photosynthesis

What if we could get power the same way plants create sugar? The goal of artificial photosynthesis is to do just that or something similar. Creating chemical energy through sunlight and carbon dioxide, but rather than making glucose we use the same process to strip electrons from molecules that can absorb photons. The school ofContinue reading “Artificial Photosynthesis”

Reversing Climate Change

Let’s face it, we’re not leaving Earth anytime soon. Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our way of life and our natural instinct is to run from a problem. However, there’s no where to run. The closest Earth like planet is light years away. Terra-forming Mars is out of the question too,Continue reading “Reversing Climate Change”
