1 Replies and 2513 Views solar panel efficiency �2513 �1 Started by Anonymous Hey, I'm a student at CREC - AAE. I was wondering why only a small amount of the sun's rays gets used in solar panels. I heard it's only like 16, which seems pretty useless.

1 Replies and 3757 Views NASA Solar Panel Use �3757 �1 Started by Anonymous Hi again, This is Spencer and I was wondering what NASA has done for solar energy at their locations. A main part of NASA is to make the world a better place for everyone. Have you implemented solar energy programs on Earth itself I think it would be a good asset for you because of the eventual cost savings and also the image of 'Green-NASA.' Thanks Much, Spencer

2 Replies and 2013 Views Solar Energy? �2013 �2 Started by Anonymous How come we don't have a sun harvesting programThe sun is so full of energy we could power our earth forever. All we have to do is send some drills and equipment up there and we'll get some sun rocks or something. And if we really don't know this much about the sun, let's bring it back to earth and study it. We can use like, thousands of feet of rope. Thanks! Bye!
