Nanowire solar cells come closer to reality Mar 25, 4:21 pm
London, March 2 (ANI): Scientists have shown that a single nanowire can concentrate the sunlight up to 15 times of the normal sun light intensity.
Washington, March 8 (ANI): We didn't receive any warning about the Russian meteor before it hit the Earth because small asteroids are very difficult to spot with telescopes as they only reflect a little sunlight, according to a scientist from the University of Southampton.
Sunlight may help stave off rheumatoid arthritis in women Feb 5, 2:12 pm
Washington, February 5 (ANI): Regular exposure to sunlight-specifically ultraviolet B (UVB)-may lower a woman's risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, according to a new study.
How the purple and pink sunscreens of reef corals work Jan 23, 5:38 pm

Engineered bacteria use sunlight to make fuel Jan 8, 10:55 am
Washington, January 8 (ANI): In a new study, chemists have engineered blue-green algae to grow chemical precursors for fuels and plastics, which is the first step in replacing fossil fuels as raw materials for the chemical industry.
Washington, December 14 (ANI): When Venus passed directly between the Earth and the Sun on 6 June 2012 in a so-called transit, a team of Italian astronomers used the opportunity to perform an unusual and challenging experiment, looking at the sunlight reflected off the Moon ('moonlight') to see how it changed during the transit.
Paintball gun 'may deflect 27-gigaton asteroid away from Earth' Oct 27, 11:31 am
Washington, October 27 (ANI): Normally, a very pale asteroid would reflect sunlight and over time this bouncing of photons off its surface could create enough of a force to push the asteroid off its course, but since they are made of dark rock, the researchers have proposed using a large space based paintball gun to coat it with white paint.
London, October 22 (ANI): Geoengineering can be applied to save the Arctic ice cap if targeted at specific regions of the planet, rather than cooling everywhere equally, new study has revealed.
Washington, October 12 (ANI): Some scientists are studying ways to temporarily reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the earth to potentially stave off some of the worst effects of climate change.
How is 'Kindle' like cuttlefish Sep 27, 3:52 pm
Washington, September 27 (ANI): In a new study, researchers have examined parallels between e-Paper technology - the technology behind sunlight-readable devices like the Kindle - and biological organisms that change colour.
Vitamin D may help treat tuberculosis Sep 5, 11:24 am
London, September 5 (ANI): Vitamin D, a vitamin synthesized by the body when exposed to sunlight, can help the body fight infections of deadly tuberculosis, researchers say.
Washington, August 20 (ANI): An electrical and computer engineer has been inspired by the natural engineering of the sunflower - slowly rotating from east to west during the course of a sunny day seeking out as much sunlight as possible - for use in the next crop of solar power systems.
Washington, July 18 (ANI): Garden tables and chairs that have been left in the shade too long is often covered with a slimy film of algae, moss, bacteria and fungi, which is difficult or even impossible to remove.
Washington, July 8 (ANI): A new study led by an Indian origin scientist is trying to detail the individual steps of highly efficient reactions that convert sunlight into chemical energy within plants and bacteria.

Asteroid measured when nudged by sunlight May 25, 5:51 pm
Washington, May 25 (ANI): NASA scientists have measured the orbit of asteroid, 1999 RQ36, with such accuracy that they were able to directly measure the drift resulting from a subtle but important force called the Yarkovsky effect - the slight push created when the asteroid absorbs sunlight and re-emits that energy as heat.
