After months of hard work, 17-year-old Yassine Bouanane made a solar panel that senses the sun’s location in the sky and follows it throughout the day to produce over 35 percent more energy than standard solar panels.
Every night, something unusual happens in Samuel Kimani’s home on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. Featured speaker and MIT professor, Daniel Nocera, participated in an eloquent dialogue at the Aspen Environmental Forum. National Geographic VoicesResearchers, conservationists, and others around the world share stories and commentary on the National Geographic Society's conversation platform Voices. Society Field Inspection 2016: Gulf of CaliforniaDescribed by Jacques Cousteau as the "aquarium of the world," the Gulf of California in Mexico is threatened by coastal development, climate change, and other human activities.

Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi. With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa. In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave. BANABA ISLAND, Kiribati—Asbestos dust covers the floors of Banaba’s crumbling colonial houses, buildings, and schools. Locked underground for millennia, an ancient Egyptian sun-god ship found by the Pyramids is slowly making its way to the surface.
For the first time in centuries, a multi-ton limestone slaba€”one of dozensa€”floats free of the "tomb" of a 4,500-year-old, disassembled "solar boat" at the foot of the Great Pyramids in Giza (map), Egypt, on Thursday. At Egypt's Solar Boat Museum in 2008, tourists surround the reassembled boat long ago excavated from the sands near the Great Pyramid. Etchings on a temple wall in Abydos, Egypt, depict a mythical solar boat borne aloft at dawn (file picture). A limestone slab is lifted from the underground chamber containing the second known solar boat at the foot of Egypt's Great Pyramid on Thursday.
Like the boat under excavation, the first excavated solar boat was buried disassembled in more than a dozen layers in a roughly hundred-foot-long (30-meter-long) pit.
In a rare view captured by a National Geographic team's tiny camera in 1987, the second solar boata€”its disassembled pieces tightly packeda€”rests in its underground chamber near the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt. In honor of April 18, we take a look at how science organizes and names speciesa€”sometimes with a sense of humor. Mountains, wildlife, and wide open skies inspired more than great pictures for our photographer. Indonesiaa€™s Tambora eruption brought on a deadly spate of coolinga€”presaging the costs that come with sudden changes to climate.

After a weekend filled with great auroral activity in Northern Canada and Scandinavia (Norway video) thanks to a strong gust of solar wind coming off the Sun Jan.19th, the Earth is about to get hit again -by the biggest blast of solar radiation in 7 years. As usual there are still too many unknowns to forecast reliably who, where, and when exactly will get a sky show when it comes to aurora, but one thing is for sure – you have to go outside and look up to even have a chance. Andrew Fazekas, aka The Night Sky Guy, is a science writer, broadcaster, and lecturer who loves to share his passion for the wonders of the universe through all media.
Actually I think it’s great an amazing force of intergalactic nature time to take the rich mans money to develope the technology for the future .
The Night Sky Guy » Blog Archive » Did Earth Dodge Solar Storm Bullet this Week?
Could this send molten metals in to the atmosphere, causing the wird groaning being heard around earth.
Our Sun is such a powerful force and it makes me wonder the affects that this solar radiation could have on us. I’m guessing there is no chance at all to see auroras in south quebec like Sherbrooke or Montreal?! Sky-watchers in the Pacific were treated to a striking solar eclipse, the first one of 2013. A woman adjusts a telescope showing the first solar eclipse of 2013, as seen Friday from Observatory Hill in Sydney, Australia.The event is known as an annular eclipse, when the moon moves directly between the Earth and the sun, producing a striking ring of fire effect. Passing clouds play hide-and-seek with the early morning sun while it undergoes a partial eclipse off a beach in Bali, Indonesia.Indonesia, like most of the populated areas across the Pacific region, saw the dark disk of the moon take a bite out of the sun. Viewers across some parts of the path of annularity in Australia had to dodge passing clouds, but patience was rewarded with spectacular views like the one above, from Tennant Creek, Australia. If there is a poster-child for the potential and already realized devastation energy development could bring to the wild desert, the tortoise is it.
He also made it into the finals of the 2012 Google Science Fair, which had its award ceremony earlier this week. He captivated the audience with humorous and informative anecdotes, while explaining his vision to meet the world’s energy needs.

To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016. Below are hundreds of delicate wooden "puzzle pieces," protected by the climate-controlled tent built over the site in 2008.Once the months-long process of extracting the pieces is finished, researchers expect to spend several years restoring the ship before placing it on display in Giza's Solar Boat Museum near the Pyramids.

Depictions such as these likely inspired the designs of the ships found buried by the Great Pyramid at Giza.The oars on the life-size boats probably represented a weapon Ra used, according to Hawass, also a National Geographic explorer-in-residence. The second boat seems to be identical to its companion, which was reconstructed over the course of 20 years about a century ago, experts say. Between that operation and Thursday's excavation, the pit was completely sealed, out of fear that air or insects could damage the beams of the ancient boat. The high influx of charged particles hitting the magnetic field poses a hazard to everything from GPS signals, polar radio communications, power grids  and circuit boards on orbiting satellites. If the geomagnetic storm becomes moderate to strong then auroras may creep down to southern latitudes like Texas and Georgia -but that’s pretty rare. He is a regular contributor to National Geographic News and is the national cosmic correspondent for Canada’s Weather Network TV channel, space columnist for CBC Radio network, and a consultant for the Canadian Space Agency. So I am guessing most of the northern part of the United States will be effected and the bottom half won’t? Post a pic of the earth with the projected aurora zone highlighted so people can see for themselves whether or not their town will see this phenomena. Yes, the Aurora will undoubtedly be beautiful but, some of the most dangerous things are beautiful, are they not? During annular eclipses, the new moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the visible disk of the sun.
These hardy, desert-adapted creatures have suffered a 40-year decline due to human development of various sorts. Clarke of the Osprey Foundation describes their work in Palestine and Israel to address the most pressing environmental needs of communities impacted by growing inequality and access to resources, and how such an ecological approach might be a means of overcoming despair.
They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society. Exactly how intense and widespread the sky show will be depends on how our planet’s magnetic field is oriented at the time when the storm arrives.
As a member of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Andrew has been observing the heavens from Montreal for over a quarter century and has never met a clear night sky he didn’t like. They have lost 90 percent of their population despite being a protected species for most of that time. De Solar Charger beschikt over een handige clip waarmee je de oplader aan je rugzak hangt om tijdens een wandeling op te laden. All you need to have is a tripod mounted DSLR camera with a wide angle lens, capable of taking exposures of up to 20 seconds with a timer.
