Heating Silicon To Power Tomorrow’s Battery?
To compensate for the hazards of renewable energy production, new forms of electricity storage are necessary. Among some of the avenues explored: using electricity to heat materials, like silicon, to very high temperatures, and then, later, converting that heat to … electricity.Ca m'intéresse
Monitoring CO2 From Space: Time to Accelerate
The more we know about the sources of CO2, the better equipped we’ll be to limit the environmental impact. Since a first Japanese mission in 1996, scientists have been exploring the potential of monitoring CO2 from space. And now, the efforts are reaching critical mass.Ca m'intéresse
