Solar Wind Could Replace Solar Energy

As the solar wind streams toward Earth, it carries the Sun's magnetic field. Moving very fast, it hits into the Earth's magnetic field, causing a shock to our magnetic protection, which results in turbulence.

NASA and HeroX Seek Innovative Energy Solutions to Power Lunar Activities

The first phase of the challenge presents a mission scenario with three mission activities. Teams will choose one or more activities to address by proposing an energy distribution, management, and/or storage solution.

NASA $2M Grant Advances Study to Directly Image Exoplanets Light Years Away

Xplore's Advanced Solar Sail Design will be the Fastest Spacecraft Ever Made, Expanding Xplore's Reach Beyond the Inner Solar System

NRL power-beaming demonstrated on International Space Station

Meir showed how NRL's LEctenna™, a light-emitting rectifying antenna, converted a wireless network signal, similar to home networks, into electric power. While the current generated and light emitted was a small amount, the setup proved the concept in space.

NASA iTech Forum Showcases Innovators' Top Energy Solutions

The 2018 NASA iTech Cycle II Energy is a collaborative effort between NASA and the U.S. Department (DOE) of Energys Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to find and foster innovative solutions for critical energy challenges on Earth and in space.

Can We Harvest Energy from Space?

Harvesting energy from space might be a long way off, but there are many technologies that already exist to make this endeavor achievable. While we don't know the future of harvesting energy from space, it is stimulating to see such ideas.
