As NASA prepares to send astronauts to the Moon through the Artemis Program, engineers are working on technologies that will give these explorers power – solar power, that is. In space, the harsh radiation and huge temperature changes make for a challenging environment.

Dr. Lyndsey McMillon-Brown at NASA’s Glenn Research Center leads a study of solar cells made from a material called perovskite. This material has the potential to help power lunar habitats one day. Dr. McMillon-Brown is the principal investigator for a project that is working on solar cells for space applications, including the Moon and Mars.

随着美国宇航局准备通过阿尔忒弥斯计划将宇航员送上月球,工程师们正在研究为这些探险者提供能源的技术——即太阳能。在太空中,恶劣的辐射和巨大的温度变化造成了一个具有挑战性的环境。

美国宇航局格伦研究中心的林赛·麦克米隆·布朗博士领导了一项由钙钛矿材料制成的太阳能电池的研究。这种材料有可能有一天帮助月球栖息地提供能源。麦克米隆·布朗博士是一个项目的首席研究员,该项目正在研究用于太空应用的太阳能电池,包括月球和火星。
