Energía Solar: Calentador de Agua con Tubo de Riego

Some time ago I made an episode about a solar water heater but it was too bulky. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and now I present an improved version. I’m going to use 16 millimeter irrigation pipe. I have here a roll of 100 meters First of all I’m going to make […]

Solar Orbiter

Protected from contamination in a cleanroom this is one of the last views of Solar Orbiter in Europe After a year of tests here at IABG in Munich the ESA spacecraft is ready to be packed-up and flown to Florida for launch Built by Airbus in the UK engineers had the challenging task of designing […]

Nordic Solar Energy

Verden har behov for energi. Grøn energi. Her er solen en væsentlig kilde. Globalt bygges der nu langt flere solcelle-anlæg end vindmøller. Solparker er således en velafprøvet kilde til grøn energi med stort potentiale for vækst. Nordic Solar har siden 2010 opkøbt solparker inden for EU. Vores parker producerer i dag ca. 120.000 MWh grøn […]

Solar Tsunami

The SOHO spacecraft has recorded the effect of all this rising energy. Its ultraviolet sensors show a wavy pattern of gas on the sun’s surface, along with the super-hot halo of gas called the corona. The white regions are places where the rising gas suddenly escapes. Immense loops of ionized gas, ten times the diameter […]

Burning Stuff With 2000ºF Solar Power!!

In a previous project I found a free tv and turned it into a giant solar scorcher. This shoots out a deadly beam of sunlight, that’s hot enough to abuse food, melt metal and burn things you probably shouldn’t. Today seemed like a good day to play with my Solar Scorcher. I positioned my frame […]

How to get 2000ºF Solar Power

If a small magnifying glass will burn things with sunlight, how much power could you get from a lens as big as you? In this project we’re hacking open a rear projection TV, because that’s where you can find one of these amazing solar scorchers, for free. To get started, the first thing I’m gonna […]
