The sun, as sung by They Might Be Giants, is a mass of incandescent gas, a giant nuclear furnace. Are they accurate in their description? We have been talking about alternative energy systems and one, very well known system, is the photovoltaic cell (aka solar panels) which captures sunlight and transfers that energy into electricity. There are many innovations emerging to improve upon this technology.
Go to the site and either watch the video (the link is called "Video: Solar Power") or read the article (be sure and expand the document to read the whole thing).
Write down five facts from either the video or the article, then respond to the question, "Do you think that the sun will solve our energy problems?"
