At the CCJP Earth Week fair this weekend, Chris Lancaster had a great display of solar panels from the last decade. These panels are the best kind of nuclear power — harvesting energy from the nuclear fusion plant located at the center of the solar system. The risks associated with this nuclear power plant are outlined with admirable brevity here.
Chris’ display was a practical reminder that solar cell costs continue to decline, a trend that was discussed in this interesting blog post at Scientific American.
I threw in a slide of the oldest and the best panels of all.
