Michael Jantzen’s Solar Eclipse Pavilion is a sprawling steel sculpture designed to create a shady public meeting space. But instead of serving just one function the artistic installation is capped with a 7,000 square foot array of photovoltaic solar cells !

Comments Off on Atoms Split And Reassembled To Replicate Photosynthesis In Computers

A team of researchers from the University of Bonn have split, seperated and reassembled an atom using quantum mechanics in order to simulate plant photosynthesis in next-generation computers. The research is part of a broader effort to build quantum mechanics bridges , which involves pulling atoms apart so that they touch adjacent atoms, thus forming a bridge between them.

Comments Off on A Pennsylvanian Woman Takes Up Residence In This Teeny Tiny 140 Square Foot Home

Tiny homes are taking over the world, and just when we thought  they couldn’t get any smaller , another one pops up half the size of its predecessor ! Resting on a friend’s tract of land, Janice Kenney’s tiny home, “The Mobile Kermitage,” measures just 140 square feet and forgoes all the creature comforts of the typical abode — there’s no shower and only a simple stove. She sleeps in a loft on what isn’t quite a second floor, and considers herself part of the “small house movement”, which advocates living in small homes for economic and environmental reasons. Kenney’s house was created by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and cost about $49,000 to construct. + Tumbleweed Tiny House Company Via Movoto The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Solar Impulse Completes World’s First Solar-Powered Intercontinental Flight!

Late last night the Solar Impulse successfully completed the world’s first solar-powered intercontinental flight! After taking off from Spain, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg piloted their Solar Impulse airplane over 515 miles to their destination in Rabat, Morocco. “This flight marks a new stage in the history of the project because we have reached another continent. Furthermore, after almost 20 hours of flight, we landed with a full set of batteries. This is extraordinary as it represents an increase in confidence in new technologies.” Said André Borschberg as the Solar Impulse landed on the runway.
