Solar edges nuclear is a substitute for solar power for human life in the future. This fact is absolutely amazing.
The history of Mars’ global dust storms makes it impossible for anyone to predict that one day solar power will compete with nuclear power.
The revelation of this fact certainly makes the possibility of Mars as a second Earth reappearing.
Energi Solar Edges Nuclear di Planet Mars
A study gave surprising results. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) wrote a study.
They published the research in the journal Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Sciences. Through this research, they show that solar power on Mars is replaceable.
Solar rises as a rival to the power of Mars. Directly, it’s actually related to the revolutionary improvements that exist in the efficiency of photovoltaic converting sunlight into electricity.
If solar photovoltaics prove to be viable on Mars in real life, then the decades-long debate over how to improve Mars exploration without using nuclear power has finally died down.
Instead, this new solar boost or solar power could help researchers find new ways to generate much more efficient power on Earth.
Can Make Permanent Settlements on Mars?
This solar power has several advantages, including higher efficiency, light weight, and flexibility.
That way, photovoltaics can provide all the power needed for a mission to Mars. It also gives the possibility of making permanent settlements there.
The UC Berkeley research team took an approach by comparing the two technologies directly for a man-made mission to Mars. The mission took 480 days to stay on the planet’s surface.
Their analysis proves that solar is better than nuclear or in terms of nuclear solar edges. That way, the energy for exploring Mars can be replaced.
During the day, some of the energy will be used to produce hydrogen gas. The gas is useful in fuel cells to power colonies at night or during sandstorms.
The combination of photovoltaic energy generation and a particular configuration of energy storage within a hydrogen molecule has proven superior to nuclear fusion of planetary surfaces, especially around the equatorial band.
Application on Earth
High-efficiency solar cells are usually grown on semiconducting materials, such as Germanium wafers. These materials have fantastic prices.
Germanium costs $10,000 per square meter. Scientists have developed a way to grow solar cell devices, remove them, before reusing wafers.
This will be a process to make the solar edges nuclear panels lighter for Mars. This innovation is also able to reduce costs for its application on Earth. (R10/HR-Online)
