In what would be one of the most ambitious space engineering projects ever, China hopes to build an orbiting solar power plant.China’s insatiable demand for renewable energy will see it turn to outer space as part of a plan that sounds straight out of science-fiction.According to China’s Science and Technology Daily (via The Sydney Morning Herald), scientists and engineers in the city of Chongqing are constructing an early experimental space power plant.A full-scale power plant would greatly exceed the capabilities of one on Earth as without the planet’s atmosphere it would receive six times the amount of solar energy and never be affected by a day/night cycle.A researcher from the China Academy of Space Technology Corporation, Pang Zhihao, said that the concept could provide “an inexhaustible source of clean energy for humans”.In concept, the orbiting power plant would convert the solar energy into electricity that would be beamed back to Earth using advanced photonics or through microwave transmission.

While a fossilised spider is a rare enough find in itself, a recent discovery uncovered creatures whose eyes still glow in the dark.The vast majority of ancient fossilised remains found scattered across the world are from creatures whose tough, rugged bones were able to survive as shadows etched into soil.By contrast, soft-bodied, fragile creatures such as a spider very rarely have the ability to survive as fossils and are mostly discovered encased within amber.However, a team of scientists from the University of Kansas (KU) and Korea excitedly announced that it has uncovered the fossilised remains of 10 spiders from the extinct family known as Lagonomegopidae in the largely unexplored area of Korean shale called the Lower Cretaceous Jinju Formation.Describing the find in the Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, the team said it was shocked to discover that two of the fossils’ eyes were preserved well enough to maintain their reflective properties.“Because these spiders were preserved in strange slivery flecks on dark rock, what was immediately obvious was their rather large eyes brightly marked with crescentic features,” said Paul Selden, director of the Paleontological Institute at KU’s Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum.
