Scientists Generates Electricity Using Coldness of the Universe

electricity using coldness

Scientists has generated a measurable amount of electricity from the coldness of the universe, harnessing the temperature difference between Earth and Space to generate the Power.

Scientist has observed that for a device on Earth facing space, which has a frigid temperature, the chilling outflow of energy from the device can harvested using the same kind of physics used to harness solar energy.

The study, published in a Journal Applied Physics Letter, provides a potential path to generating electricity.

“The vastness of the universe is a thermodynamic resource,” said Shanhui Fan, from Stanford University in the US.

He also said in statement that, In terms of optoelectronic physics, there is really this very beautiful symmetry between harvesting incoming radiation and harvesting outgoing radiation.
