Comments Off on Germany Sets 23.9 GW Solar Power Generation Record!

Despite the long and dark winter, solar panels keep lining Germany’s residential rooftops. According to  SMA Solar Technology , the country has just set another world record in solar energy production. Its solar power output climbed from already impressive record of 22.4 GW in June to a whopping 23.9 GW during peak times yesterday. The data is based on the output of thousands of SMA solar power system spread across the country. Read the rest of Germany Sets 23.9 GW Solar Power Generation Record!

Comments Off on Record-Setting Heat Wave Spreads Across Southwestern US, Grounding Planes

Scorching heat and record temperatures are sweeping the southwest U.S. this week – and there’s still no end in sight. The record setting heat wave is set to continue throughout the Southwest after peaking at 127 degrees in California’s Death Valley on Saturday – that’s just a few degrees shy of the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth. So far the heat has caused deadly wildfires , grounded airplanes, and melted sneakers – and it’s expected to continue at least through Tuesday.

IBM and DARPA’s Ultra-High-Speed Digital Data Link Sets Energy Efficiency Record

Comments Off on IBM and DARPA’s Ultra-High-Speed Digital Data Link Sets Energy Efficiency Record

The supercomputers of the future will be capable of amazing feats such as modeling global climate scenarios , running molecular-level simulations of cells, and designing nanostructures. In order to for these “exascale computers” to operate, they will need to be able to run an enormous amount of data quickly while keeping power consumption under control. Scientists at IBM in conjunction with DARPA have created an ultra-high-speed prototype optical link that sets a new energy efficiency record. The researchers are set to describe their invention at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) being held in Anaheim, CA from March 17-21.

BIG Selected to Develop the Master Plan of the Smithsonian Institute Campus

Comments Off on BIG Selected to Develop the Master Plan of the Smithsonian Institute Campus

Danish architect Bjarke Ingels is known for designing modern, unconventional buildings, so it comes as a bit of a surprise to learn that Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has been selected to redesign the historic Smithsonian campus in Washington, DC. BIG will lead a design team that will include Surface Design, Traceries and Robert Silman Associates, which will be tasked with re-imagining the world’s largest museum and research complex. BIG won’t be designing any new buildings—at least for the time being—so we don’t expect any mountain-shaped forms to spring up on the National Mall, but the question of how, exactly, BIG will rethink the historic campus is still open.
