Getting a Feel for Eclipses explains details surrounding the August total solar eclipse. Tactile graphics provide an illustration of the interaction and alignment of the Sun with the Moon and the Earth.

NASA has many unique needs for space power and energy storage technologies that require special technology solutions due to extreme environmental conditions. For example, • Venus surface operations require very high sustained temperatures (~ °C), • Surface penetrators must survive high.

Subjects discussed in connection with solar electricity are related to solar radiation fundamentals, wind electric conversion and utilization, the basic theory of solar cells, photovoltaic materials, photovoltaic technology, components of solar thermal electric systems, solar thermal power plants, and integrated solar thermal electric complexes.

The solar technology development in. This technology is called solar photovoltaics or more simply, PV. Also referred to as solar electric, PV offers the ability to generate electricity in a clean, quiet and renewable way. Conducts research and technology development on advanced space solar cell designs, PV blanket/component technologies, novel solar array concepts, photovoltaic-like energy conversion concepts (i.e., thermophotovoltaic, alphavoltaic, and betavoltaic devices), lithium-based and alkaline-based battery modular systems, electrolyzers, and proton.
