AUSTRALIA - Solar Power at Night?

Arno Froese

The sun always sets on solar power eventually, right? Not necessarily, according to an astounding new research project. Newly developed technology similar to night-vision goggles may have just made solar power at night a real possibility.

Scientists from the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science and the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) report a major milestone in thermal capture technology. They’ve developed a device capable of generating electricity from thermal radiation.

During development, the team made use of a power-generation device called a “thermo-radiative diode,” which is quite similar to the technology found in night-vision goggles.

Rune Strandberg, a Norwegian scientist, was the first researcher to consider the theoretical possibility of such a device. Now, scientists at Stanford University are currently conducting their own research on the potential possibilities of collecting thermal energy at night.

To be clear, the successful test put together by the team only produced a very small amount of energy (about 0.001% of a solar cell). At this early stage, though, all that really matters is that the device works.

Arno's Commentary

One sensational report after another is a daily routine in the top-level scientific world.

So, the question, how far will mankind go? Our answer, based on Holy Scripture: there is no limit. In the end, it’s not an issue of harnessing electricity—thus resulting in clean power—but the real goal will always be the creation of a manmade god. That is almost natural, since man continues to distance himself from the God of creation. Thus, his inventive mind is forced to look for a substitute.
