    DescriptionThe first settlers on Mars will need to rely on renewable energy to survive in the long run, or else Elon Musk’s prophecy will come true much sooner than expected. The problem? “Generating renewable energy on Mars is technologically challenging,” say scientists at Delft University of Technology.

    DescriptionEen wedstrijd van de Europese Ruimteorganisatie ESA leverde het voorstel op om gigantische vliegers te gebruiken voor het opwekken van energie uit de behoorlijk harde wind die op Mars waait. De vliegers zouden genoeg energie moeten produceren voor de dagelijkse werkzaamheden van een aantal astronauten.

    DescriptionCurrently, rovers that are exploring the surface of Mars are often powered by solar energy. Some rely on other sources of energy, but solar is common. The challenge is that solar panels can get covered by dust that proliferates on the surface of Mars, reducing power or potentially leaving the systems they power unable to operate. Researchers at the ESA have been working on a new potential way to power rovers on Mars in the future that involves flying a kite.

    DescriptionEver since the space race heated up 50 years ago, colonising other bodies in our solar system or beyond has been the underlying vision to find permanent settlements in space. Most of the premier space agencies are aiming to get humans on the Red Planet by the end of this decade and it is getting closer to reality. Now scientists are working on innovative ways to power these habitats, as any long-term base camps on Mars will need to be powered by renewable energy. A proposal developed in response to a contest run by the European Space Agency (ESA) suggests using massive kites flown by robots to harness high Martian wind speeds. According to Daily Mail report, researchers from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands propose flying giant kites flown by robots to generate energy. The kite will be attached by cable to a spindle and as it sails higher, the cable unspools, generating energy for a base camp.

    DescriptionRemember flying a kite as a child? You had to muster all your strength to keep it from flying away. Professor Roland Schmehl and his team use this force and harvest electricity from it. But what would happen if we put this invention in the hands of a kindergarten teacher?
