Astronomy on Tap Köln: Powered by the stars
June 22 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM EDT
Our next event will feature Robin Bernhardt, a PhD student at the Universität zu Köln.
Title: “Powered by the stars: solar energy in the past, present, and future”
Summary: “For more than 3 billion years, living organisms use the sun as an important energy source. Solar energy in the form of photosynthesis nourishes plants and is the source of all of our food. Today, we use solar energy ourselves to power our society using photo-voltaics – a key technology for humankind to fight climate change. With the help of the sun, we might look into a brighter future!
Join me on a ride through history: from the first light harvesting bacteria over solar cells and satellites to the technologies of space-faring civilizations.”
