Astronomers and cosmologists at Penn who are part of a global endeavor to catalog hundreds of millions of distant galaxies as part of the Dark Energy Survey (DES) are marking the end of six years of observations with the last image collection on Jan. 9. DES represents one of the most promising ongoing studies of dark energy. “It’s a project that’s working to answer one of the biggest mysteries in our universe,” says Bhuvnesh Jain, a professor in Penn’s Department of Physics & Astronomy. “These data help us connect questions of fundamental physics with astronomy and cosmology.”

How Solar Helps the Environment

Article | March 23, 2020

Despite advances in technology, the world is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil for energy production. Our lifestyles require a lot of electricity running through our homes, but fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. Sunshine, on the other hand, is plentiful and will not run out anytime soon. We can make the decision today to switch to a cleaner and smarter energy solution by using solar panels to power our homes. Here are some of the top ways solar energy is better for the environment.

Renewable Energy Could Power the World by 2050

Article | March 23, 2020

Virtually all the world’s demand for electricity to run transport and to heat and cool homes and offices, as well as to provide the power demanded by industry, could be met by renewable energy by mid-century. This is the consensus of 47 peer-reviewed research papers from 13 independent groups with a total of 91 authors that have been brought together by Stanford University in California. Some of the papers take a broad sweep across the world, adding together the potential for each technology to see if individual countries or whole regions could survive on renewables.

Is solar or wind a better way to power your home?

Article | March 23, 2020

A growing number of homeowners in the United States are turning to renewable energy sources to provide power for their homes. Solar power systems only need sunlight to power your home and vehicle, recharge large battery systems, and still allow you to sell extra energy to your utility company. Wind power can perform the same functions by producing energy from wind-powered turbines. Both depend on often volatile forces of nature, but overall, solar panels provide more consistent energy. Solar panels don't include moving components, as wind production units do. These and other differences play important roles in deciding which renewable energy option is best for you.
