Artificial Sun For Climate Friendly Fuel
The vision of cars driven by hydrogen has not materialized. Instead the battery and electricity seem to have won the competition. With airplanes it is different. Although electric planes could be reality in a decade or so, for longer distances this is not an option. Hydrogen could very well be.
The German Aerospace Centre DLR in Jülich has recently opened a research facility consisting of an artificial sun, with an intensity of 10,000 times the original. The idea is is to study how sun light can be used to generate “solar fuels”, like hydrogen.
