By thinking small, a group of South African scientists may have pioneered solar technology that has stumped Internet giant Google.
Google has got a good look at your roof, and can tell you if it is worth the investment to install solar energy panels.
The Earth's magnetic field – known as the "magnetosphere" – protects our atmosphere from the "solar wind." That's the constant stream of charged particles flowing outward from the sun. When the magnetosphere shields Earth ...
In space, far above Earth's turbulent atmosphere, you might think the one thing you don't have to worry about is weather. But you would be wrong. Just ask the people charged with the safety of the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and ...
Most experts agree that to have a shot at curbing the worst impacts of climate change, we need to extricate our society from fossil fuels and ramp up our use of renewable energy.
A solar-powered aircraft flying between Japan and Hawaii as part of a round-the-world bid passed the halfway point of the perilous Pacific Ocean crossing Wednesday, and smashed its own endurance record.
A solar-powered aircraft on a round-the-world flight was high above the Pacific Ocean Tuesday, over a quarter of the way to Hawaii after leaving Japan, the mission website showed.
A solar-powered plane attempting to fly around the world must cross the Pacific within a few weeks or it could remain stuck in Japan for a year, its pilot said in an interview published Thursday.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique for "scheduling" energy in electric grids that moves away from centralized management by tapping into the distributed computing power of energy ...
A solar-powered plane that got stuck in Japan during an attempt to fly around the world is fixed and ready to go—as soon as the weather gets better, a spokeswoman said Thursday.
