Fusion Technology: ITER & Others

For sustainable fusion reaction to be realized, the tritium and deuterium plasma must be exposed to temperatures of over 100 million °C using powerful heaters with minimal loss of energy. To maintain that high temperature, the hot plasma must be placed a distance from the reactors interior. Since the plasma is an electrically-charged gas, it [...]

Solar Cells Are Better than Plants in harnessing Solar Energy: Enhanced Photosynthesis

David Kramer at Michigan State University gave a statement in Science daily on May 12, 2011. He said that the new paper in science claims that during the harvesting process of sun’s energy, solar cells can kill plants. However, scientists argue that they can balance it. Plants are not as good as solar cells when [...]
