The solar industry is growing steadily in the US, with revenues ballooning from US$42 million in 2007 to US$210 million in 2017, while total capacity is expected to more than double over the next five years. Though these broad strokes paint a useful overall picture of rates of solar uptake, there's a lot to be learned from drilling into the finer details. Stanford scientists have built a n

Over the last few years, we've been keeping tabs on a cooling system developed by a team led by Professor Shanhui Fan at Stanford University that draws thermal heat from a building and beams it into space through a process called radiative cooling – all without requiring any external power source. Now the researchers have paired this technology with a solar panel, designing a system with t
NASA's Parker Solar Probe has reported back alive and well after passing closer to the Sun than any spacecraft in history. At 4:46 pm EST on November 7, 2018, mission control at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab confirmed receiving the unmanned craft's status beacon via the space agency's Deep Space Network after coming within 15 million mi (24 million km) of the Sun's surfa
Screecher – out of Yarmouth, Maine – describes its four-wheel drive, two seat, solar-powered, folding pedalcycle as fun, affordable, practical and Earth-friendly. Riders can zip up to 15 mph on motor power alone, or choose from five levels of pedal assist. The onboard battery can be plugged in for a top up, or users can park up in a sunny spot and let the solar panels do their thing... Con
