SolarCity Unveils Worlds Most Efficient Rooftop Solar Panel with more than 22 Module Efficiency.
The Sun provides endless energy, but the average solar cell panel can convert only 14 to 20 of the energy it collects into usable electricity. Now, American energy company SolarCity has built the world's most efficient rooftop solar panel, with a module efficiency exceeding 22 percent. The new SolarCity panel generates more power per square foot and harvests more energy over a year than any other rooftop panel in production, and will be the highest volume solar panel manufactured in the Western Hemisphere. SolarCity will begin producing the first modules in small quantities this month at its 100.
MW pilot facility, but the majority of the new solar panels will ultimately be produced at SolarCity's 1 GW facility in Buffalo, New York. SolarCity expects to be producing between 9,000 10,000 solar panels each day with similar efficiency when the Buffalo facility reaches full capacity. SolarCity's panel was measured with 22.04 percent modulelevel efficiency by Renewable Energy Test Center, a thirdparty certification testing provider for photovoltaic and renewable energy products. SolarCity's new panel is created via a proprietary process that significantly reduces the manufacturing cost relative to other highefficiency technologies, and it.
Clean Energy Demand Solar Panels Power IKEA Pew
MIKE WARD The modern view on sustainability within IKEA, we've identified three change drivers, and one of those change drivers is energy independence and resource independence for the future. We had a program a few years ago that we called IKEA Goes Renewable, and that was meant to sort of get us kick started. So far, we've been able to achieve the step that 50 of our energy use is from renewable sources. I'm talking about globally now. We want to get to 70 by 2015, and by 2020, we actually want.
To produce more energy from renewable sources than we consume in the total operation. In the short term, of course it helps us reduce our carbon footprint, it helps us save cost. We have 38 stores in the US, and at the moment, we have 35 who are fitted with solar installations and one that has a geothermal installation. What is it actually used for It's for everything from refrigeration in our Swedish food markets, running our cash registers, charging the fork lifts, lighting the building. The stores are pretty big operations.
There's a lot going on, and we use it for all of those uses. I mean, you name it, it helps. What we've done so far is equal to 38 megawatts. If you translate that to something easy to understand, it can power 90,000 homes. We've always been extremely economical in our use of resources. The reason is because in order to deliver low prices, you have to be very, very efficient, so that sits in our DNA. We know that sense we put these installations on our roofs, we spend less on energy and that's proven, so we're.
The Future of Flight
These are the technological developments that will allow us to move ourselves and our cargo cheaper, greener, and faster, through the air, going forward. This is the future of flight. With the first allelectric twinengine, selfpowered aircraft successfully crossing the English Channel this month, and the ongoing effort of the Solar Impulse team to become the first completely solarpowered aircraft to fly around the world, the amount of innovation targeting the aviation industry is eyeopening. Within the next year, unmanned, solarpowered drones like the Silent Falcon will hit the commercial UAV market.
The Joby Aviation S2 electric is a proposed Vertical Takeoff and Landing aircraft that could be five times as efficient as a conventional personal airplane. Airbus' two passenger version of the EFan will use onboard lithium batteries to power two electric engines. The Aeroscraft ML868 could lead a comeback of giant airships. The 770 footlong behemoth can carry 200 tons with cargo bays larger than any current air, truck or rail transport vehicle. Aerion's AS2 is the first supersonic commercial jet since the Concorde. It will fly at a speed of Mach 1.6. Laminar flow technology and better wing design will reduce drag by 20.
By the middle of the 2020's we'll likely see solar powered drones delivering broadband to millions for a fraction of the cost of traditional satellites. Building on the concept of drones and autonomous flying technology, fullyautomated planes will take to the skies to revolutionize not just the air cargo delivery industry, but possibly personal air travel as well, much like what's happening today with driverless cars. By 2030, plantbased fuels should account for 30 or more of an airlines' fuel consumption. Airbus' hybrid commercial airliner will emit barely any emissions or noise on takeoff.
And landing thanks to lithiumair batteries. Boeing and NASA could team to launch a hybrid commercial airliner called SUGAR for Subsonic UltraGreen, Aircraft Research, which uses twothirds less fuel than an equivalent sized aircraft from 2015. Travelling 10 slower, but using 70 less fuel than today's Boeing 737, the D8 Series Double Bubble's fuselage will provide 20 of its lift. By 2040, we could see the world's first hydrogen powered commercial flight. The hydrogen would be cryogenically frozen. EAD's Zero Emission High Supersonic Transport passenger jet, running on biofuel, could cut.
The more than 6,000 mile flight from Paris to Tokyo to just 230 minutes. Like a fighter jet on an aircraft carrier, commercial planes could be catapulted into the air, reducing the length of runways by onethird. As if they were a flock of migrating birds, more intelligent systems could allow aircraft on the same routes to selforganize into a flying patter, reducing wind drag and saving fuel. Six hydrogen engines, a rear engine that doubles as a wind turbine, and solar panels on its roof and wings will propel the zeroemission Progress Eagle, a tripledecker, 800passenger.
STAR WARS The Old Republic Timeline Resurrection Holocrons
Hitherto the role of Sith rituals had been to give rise to the excessive, yet regulated manifestation of power it was a spectacular expression of potency, an expenditure', exaggerated and coded, in which power renewed its vigour. It always was more or less related to triumph. Discipline, however, had its own type of ceremony. It was not the triumph, but the review, the parade', an ostentatious form of the examination. In it the subjects' were presented as objects' to the observation of a power that was manifested only by its gaze.
What was then being formed was a policy of coercions that act upon the body, a calculated manipulation of its elements, its gestures, its behaviour. The apprentice's body was entering a machinery of power that explores it, breaks it down and rearranges it. A political anatomy', which was also a mechanics of power', was being born it defined how one may have a hold over others' bodies, not only so that they may do what one wishes, but so that they may operate as one wishes, with the techniques, the speed and the efficiency that one determines.
Planet X The new planet in our solar system
Two scientists claim that they have found the best evidence yet that a huge ninth planet exists at the outer limits of the Solar System. It's called Planet X, and it's about 10 times the mass of Earth, or roughly the size of Neptune. The planet supposedly orbits far out from the Sun on a highly elliptical path, which takes 10 to 20,000 years to make one full circuit. And it's way out there too somewhere between 200 and 1,200 times the distance from the Sun to Earth. But don't get too excited yet no one has actually seen this planet. The entire argument.
About its existence is theoretical. It's based on the observations of six objects in the Kuiper Belt, the cloud of icy bodies at the edge of the Solar System. The way these objects move around the Sun seems to indicate that they're being affected by something big. AKA Planet X. That's about all the evidence we have though. Some experts think that six objects is a small sample for such a big claim. Also, the researchers say the chances of this all being a coincidence are 1 in 150,000. Those are pretty good odds but usually scientists like to have a way.
Lower probability of failure around 1 in 1.7 million. Still, experts agree that the models supporting Planet X are strong. And we've used this indirect method to find planets before. Neptune was originally detected by observing anomalies in the movement of Uranus. Plus, having a huge planet like this so far out from the Sun isn't exactly out of the ordinary. Planets of this size are very common in the Universe, so Planet X would make our Solar System much more normal than strange. Now all we need to do is find it. The Large Synoptic.
A New Planet in our Solar System NASA Takes a Look
Hi, I'm Jim Green, Director of Planetary Science at NASA. NASA works with the international science community to explore our solar system and beyond. We look to unravel the mysteries that intrigue us all as we explore and answer big questions, like How did Earth originate and change over time, and how did the solar system begin and evolve, and what will be its destiny. What will be our destiny Last July 14th, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto, capping a half century of exploration of our solar system. It piqued our interest about what lies beyond Pluto, and what can we learn about the origins.
Of the solar system. The idea of a new planet is certainly an exciting one for me as a planetary scientist and I think for all of us. The January 20th paper in the Astronomical Journal is fueling our interest in planetary exploration and stimulating a healthy debate that's part of the scientific process. I couldn't be more please about what's happening. It's the start of a process that could lead to an exciting result. It is not, however, the detection of a new planet. It's too early to say with certainty.
There's a socalled Planet X out there. What we're seeing is an early prediction based on modeling from limited observations. What's exciting is that, like NASA's journey to Mars or New Horizons' flyby of Pluto, you will have a front row seat to see how the scientific process unfolds. Theories like this serve to stimulate ideas and conversation. They tap into our innate curiosity. It's important for us to continue the work, and we will. Anytime we have an interesting idea like this, we always apply Carl Sagan's rules for critical.
Evidence of a Ninth Planet
What we have discovered is that numerous features of the Kuiper Belt, a field of icy debris beyond the orbit of Neptune, can be understood if the solar system possesses an additional ninth planet that resides well beyond the orbits of the known planets. When we looked at the outer solar system we realized that while most of the very distant objects, these objects beyond Neptune, beyond Pluto. Most of these objects, they all go around the sun and they're all sort of pointing off in all different directions, but the most distant objects all swing.
Out in one direction in a very strange way that shouldn't happen. And we realized that the only way we can get them to all swing in one direction is if there is a massive planet, also very distant in the solar system, keeping them in place while they all go around the sun. And we started looking at this and thinking this must be either a coincidence or it's caused by something else. It can't be caused by a planet because that's crazy. There are no planets out there. I went from trying very hard to be skeptical that what we.
Were talking about was true to suddenly thinking, oh, this actually might even be true. So the object itself likely is more massive than the Earth, probably a little bit less massive than Neptune. It sits right in between that terrestrial to giant icy planet range. Its orbit, unlike the orbits of the known planets, is not nearly circular and planar. Instead, it is exceptionally wide, twenty times bigger than the orbit of Neptune. The orbital period of the Earth is, of course, one year. The orbital period of Jupiter, the big player in our solar system, is about.
10 years. The orbital period of this putative ninth planet, is twenty thousand years. We have nothing like it in the solar system, so it's new for us. It is, however, the most common mass of planets that have been found around all of the other stars. People have always looked at all these other planets in this strange mass range and said, Wow, I wonder what these are I don't know what these are because we don't have anything like it in the solar system. Looks like maybe we do.
There are many telescopes on the Earth that actually have a chance of being able to find it, and I think that many people will be inspired to use their telescopes. I'm really hoping that as we announced this people will start a worldwide search to go find this ninth planet. History shows us that it's a bad idea to consistently say, We have now reached the end of the solar system, and there's nothing beyond what we already know. And all those people who are mad that Pluto was no longer planet.
Is Space Colonization Our Moral Obligation
Right now all of our eggs are in one basket and the basket is called earth. we can't stay in the solar system forever. It's just a fact. So if we do stay here we would essentially, you know, the sun would essentially engulf the inner planets. And even if we've achieved perfect world peace and there's no hunger, there's no poverty, there's no disease, it will all be gone if we're still here. So some of the first missions to Mars, obviously we have multiple satellites already in orbit, and so some of the first missions are really planned for within the next 15 years. But.
There are active and longterm plans in NASA to have people get colonies there, living there whether it's either asteroids, moons or potentially Mars. The timeline goes up to 200 or 300 years out is when we start to begin some of that work of actually not just sending exploratory missions but people actually living there. I think this is not only sort of what is the natural next step of really human evolution and exploration but I would even argue is our duty as a species because we're the only species that has an awareness.
Of extinction. So I think it's the responsibility to preserve not only our species but actually all species. If you keep going further out eventually you go to Mars, you go to other solar systems, it's really the question just begs the question back on itself. You can't keep going and going and going. At the end of the time eventually the universe will either keep expanding, and so they'll be too far apart, or it may collapse back in on itself. And so I think there the last question of my longterm plan for the laboratory is, which of course we'll all be.
Long dead before, but is do we prevent the universe from collapsing back in on itself in the hopes that life will arise a new or do we actually use our ingenuity and technological acumen to prevent the universe from collapsing and at that point maybe we'll be controlling gravity. I think we would have to probably prevent it and maybe carve out a small area of the universe that wouldn't collapse or would somehow survive, which we have no idea how that's going to happen. I think the ethical question we can think about today is how much and to.
