Dr. Michael Van Zeeland from General Atomics, led the research by international team that was composed of more than 30 scientists from across the globe who worked together to develop an approach to keep the fusion plasma in check. To harness fusion energy fast plasma particles can be confined by a strong magnetic field, which […]

Scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have a plan underway for a 1-gigawatt space-based solar power generator within just 25 years. JAXA is working directly on the main problems. Orbital solar power’s main problem is once the energy is harvested all the huge reservoir of energy is still out there in space. Early […]

Scientists at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering have designed a power-harvesting device with efficiency similar to that of very best solar panels using inexpensive materials configured and tuned to capture microwave signals. For now the device wirelessly converts the microwave signal to direct current voltage capable of recharging a cell phone battery or other […]
