MIT Scientists Mimic Photosynthesis in the Lab With Positive Implications for Solar Power

Yet another breakthrough has been made and it promises to make Solar Power even more efficient and cheap in the future. The engineers at MIT have managed to use solar power to initiate the splitting of oxygen and hydrogen in a solar cell, something that this website explains: The inventors of this process are confident that it could be perfected in about 10 years' time. Hopefully, if alternative methods are used in increasing degrees during this period, fossil fuel could be shown the fist for once and for all by the time this technology is perfected.

What fantastic news to end the weekend with! May the brilliant folk at MIT come up with more inventions that would accelerate this process forward! Thanks, ladies and gentlemen!
