Solar panel installations are some of the most environmentally-friendly sources of energy. They have zero emissions, making them sustainable for humans on Earth and possibly in space. Yes, that’s right. Solar panels could make it to space because agencies like the European Space Agency (ESA) are planning to launch space-based solar power in the future. […]
When it comes to learning more about the Earth, it’s important to look to our own solar system to see how the other planets have transformed over millions of years. That’s why we invited astrophysicist, author, host, and science educator Paul M. Sutter to join us this week on The Biofriendly Podcast to chat about interstellar space travel, life on other planets, and why Bruce Willis could be the key to everything!
On April 25th, 2013, NASA researchers found that a commercial jet could safely fly with jet fuel that also contained plant oil. In fact, it was reported that a biofuel mix created from camelina plant oil did not affect a DC-8 aircraft’s engine performance as high as 39,000 feet. Additionally, it was reported that the […]
Image by Network Rail Technology is evolving at an amazing rate these days. Things we would have thought impossible, or at least extremely “futuristic”, 20 to 30 years ago are now becoming reality.
