Microgrid for a Future Lunar Base

Microgrid for a Future Lunar Base

NASA's plan for its concept Artemis lunar base is that it will serve as a technology proving ground for the eventual human exploration of Mars. The base camp concept consists of a habitation unit — complete with room for up to four astronauts — as well as the potential for separate mining and fuel processing. Early Artemis missions will include short stays at the base camp with the goal to build up to stays of two months at a time.

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Metal halide perovskites have very narrow spectral emission, excellent color purity, low material cost, and wide and easy color-tunability. Based on these advantages, perovskites are considered as a promising high color purity light emitter which can replace the conventional organic and inorganic quantum dot light emitters in displays and solid-state lighting technologies.

Ultrathin Fuel Cell Uses the Body's Own Sugar to Generate Electricity

Engineers have developed a glucose power source that could fuel miniature implants and sensors. The device is smaller than other proposed glucose fuel cells, measuring just 400 nanometers thick, or about 1/100 the diameter of a human hair. The sugary power source generates about 43 microwatts per square centimeter of electricity, achieving the highest power density of any glucose fuel cell to date under ambient conditions.

ECOWind: Partnership Investigates Offshore Wind Affect on Marine Life

Offshore wind farms have a key role to play if the UK is to meet its climate ambitions, yet the cumulative effects of offshore wind on the marine environment alongside other human activities are still not well understood. The new Ecological Consequences of Offshore Wind research programme (ECOWind) will help answer these unknowns and deliver policy-ready solutions that aim to enable offshore wind and thriving marine ecosystems to coexist and to promote environmental restoration.
