In labs around the world, scientists and engineers are working to transform skyscrapers into giant solar energy-generating pylons. This has been made possible by a seemingly fictional invention that has appeared over the last few yearsâorganic, transparent solar cells that when inserted into panes of glass, absorb sun and turn it into electricity to power […]

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Slow-moving post-tropical storm Beta continues to drop large amounts of rainfall in Texas as it moves into the Lower Mississippi Valley on Sept. 23. A NASA satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations estimated Beta’s rainfall rates.
Researchers can offer insight into why these storms intensified quickly as they moved across the continental shelf.
