Here comes the sun: Tethered-balloon tests ensure safety of new solar-power technology

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories recently used 22-foot-wide tethered balloons to collect samples of airborne dust particles to ensure the safety of an emerging solar-power technology. The study determined that the dust created by the new technology is far below hazardous levels, said Cliff Ho, the lead researcher on the project. Ho’s team just received $25 million from the Department of Energy to build a pilot plant that will incorporate this technology.

China’s Solar Dominance Presents Biden With Human Rights Dilemma
