Solar Wind image from Shutterstock Using data collected by NASA ’s Wind solar probe, scientists have identified an energy source that causes solar winds to heat up and accelerate as they travel further away from their source. The discovery pinpoints ion cyclotron waves as the source of this strange phenomenon, which could revolutionize the nuclear energy industry Read the rest of Researchers Discover Solar Wind Energy Source that Could Revolutionize Nuclear Power Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “clean energy” , green technology , ion cyclotron waves , nasa solar power , nasa solar sail satellite , NASA Wind probe , nuclear energy , nuclear fusion reactors , Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics , Solar Power , solar probe , solar wind , solar wind energy

Comments Off on Solar Winds Could Provide 100 Billion Times Earth’s Energy Needs

Researchers from Washington State University have published a paper in the International Journal of Astrobiology stating that energy from solar winds could replace conventional forms of renewable energy produced on Earth such as solar, wind and biofuel power. In the article, the scientists theorize that a giant solar sail, designed to harness solar winds, could generate 1 billion gigawatts of electricity.
