Every time fossil fuels get cheaper, people lose interest in solar deployment. That may be about to change. After years of struggling against cheap natural gas prices and variable subsidies, solar electricity is on track to be as cheap or cheaper than average electricity-bill prices in 47 U.S. states -- in 2016. That’s assuming the U.S. maintains its 30 percent tax credit on system costs, which is set to expire that same year.

NASA's WISE-missie maakt 'atlas van de ruimte' (© NASA/JPL - Caltech/UCLA photo) de wolk CG 4, door de groene vorm zien mensen er vaak een krokodil in die zich een weg door de ruimte eet.

This stellar object is called Spitzer as seen by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer; the cloud might be imagined as a cosmic alligator eating its way across the sky.

Quadski - Amphibious ATV

What would happen if a Quadbike mated with a Jet Ski? You'd get the The Gibbs Technology Quadski, the first commercially viable, high-speed Quadbike/ATV and a Jet Ski all in one.

Nanoantennas Produce Energy From Ambient Infrared Radiation

This is the first time we’ve looked at light just passing by (The six-nanosecond-long clip was shot at 20 billion fps)

For the first time ever scientists have captured a video of a laser’s flight path as it moves through the air. The clip above was created using a new ultra high-speed camera capable of detecting.
