    Decade of discovery: doubling carbon-based solar cell efficiency

    22 Oct 2014



    Very good work has been done and it is amazing the quantity of data in such a short time. I am sure to revisit this theme again, I find it both amazing and encouraging that world wide people are volunteering their computers for this work! Bravo, World. :p

    The rest of the story (I plan to borrow this phrase from Paul Harvey, indefinitely)

    HELP CURE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

    October 28, 2014

    An update from the Project that ended, Phase 2, last year.

    A bit technical but, it essentially means that they have found a way to use all the data produced by WCG, despite earlier failures described in the article, here.

    As a layman, and an intelligent one, I can sort of grasp the concept and experiments. What I truly understand? This project is becoming a Grand Success!!

    :clap:

    Might make for a rather large opening post....But, also a one stop shopping spot. In fact, I may just link to my posting, that contains the link to the original story. Deal? :toast:

    That's what I'm suggesting, a link to your postings ;)

    Using spoilers will allow the OP to stay reasonably shorter
