    Harnessing the power of the sun from space. The Naval Research Laboratory thinks a massive solar satellite could change civilization. Harnessing Power from the MoonAuthor: Loura Hall.

    Earth is bathed in huge amounts of energy from the Sun— million terawatt hours every year. This is a lot—around 6, times the amount of commercial primary energy GLOSSARY primary energy Energy in natural sources that has not been converted into other forms by humans. used in the world in Humans have always used some of the Sun’s energy directly—for drying clothes and.   But it’s just a trickle of material. To truly harness the power of the Sun, we need to get at that store of hydrogen, and speed up the extraction process. There are a few techniques that might work.

    In Taming the Sun, Varun Sivaram makes a level-headed, yet compelling case for the role that solar energy can play in addressing climate change. His book not only introduces the solar technologies that are potentially significant, but also what is required to fully commercialize them from a scaling, funding, and policy perspective.   Sun motors, usually huge collections of mirrors set to capture the sun’s rays over an area of many hundred square feet and focus them on a small spot, are not new. Such motors are working in California and in the Sahara. But Dr. Claude’s plan to trap the heat of the sun indirectly is the most ambitious sun power scheme ever conceived.
