Australia is surging ahead on photovoltaic installations and is projected to hit a whopping 10,000 MW of solar power capacity in a few years. A new report by market analysts Sunwiz and Solar Business Services forecasts that the Australian photovoltaic market, which is currently at 2.5 GW, will likely grow to between 6 GW and 10 GW by as early as 2017. The report suggests that the owner-occupied, single-family residential market will soon be saturated with photovoltaic installations, so the solar industry will have to target more challenging sectors like the multi-family residential and commercial sectors.

Comments Off on ALMA: The World’s Largest Telescope Array Powers Up in Chile’s Atacama Desert

The world’s largest telescope array officially opened Wednesday in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) consists of 66 huge antennas directed towards the night sky to gather data and images of neighboring stars and some of the most distant, ancient galaxies. Its telescopes will have better resolution than the famous Hubble Space Telescope , and they will allow astronomers to shed light on how stars are born and how they die.
