"Leveraging the Human Cloud" --Citizen Scientists Discover New Kepler Earth-Like Planets Orbiting Sun-Like Stars

MIT and Caltech researchers say the credit for Five new planets have been discovered outside our solar system goes mainly to citizen scientists — about 10,000 from the around the world — who pored through publicly available data from K2,...        

Citizen scientists discovered an unusual new solar system not even NASA could find

In NASA's efforts to explore the endless expanse of space, the agency eventually came to a realization: there is simply too much data. Missions like the one embarked upon in 2009 by the Kepler space telescope yield such a tremendousShow More Summary

University Of New South Wales Signs World-First 100% Solar Agreement

The University of New South Wales in Australia has signed a world-first agreement with Maoneng Australia and Origin Energy to secure 100% of its electricity from solar PV, becoming the world's first university to go fully carbon neutral with its energy sources

Perovskite solar cells: Perfection not required

(Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie) Metal-organic perovskite layers for solar cells are frequently fabricated using the spin coating technique on industry-relevant compact substrates. These perovskite layers generally exhibit numerous holes, yet attain astonishingly high levels of efficiency. Show More Summary

Australia Poised For Renewable Energy Breakout

The market for solar power in Australia is about to explode, according to multiple sources, driven in large part by the high cost of electricity in the country and the ever declining cost of solar power.

Researchers develop more efficient conversion method for solar energy

Researchers at the University of Twente's MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Show More Summary

Slow 'hot electrons' could improve solar cell efficiency

(University of Groningen) Photons with energy higher than the 'band gap' of the semiconductor absorbing them give rise to what are known as hot electrons. The extra energy is lost very fast, as it is converted into heat so it does not contribute to the voltage. Show More Summary
