Scientists beat nature in solar race

forest1.jpgThere are many things you can do with the sun. Many. Many, many. Like not look at it and then look at it when there are eclipses. Now there’s one more thing you can do with it.

According to Science Daily, researchers at Penn State have worked out a proof of concept system to make hydrogen from water and sunlight, using water photolysis – an in-the-lab sort of mimcking of the photosynthesis used by plants.

By using electrodes and synthetic dyes, the system can split water into hydrogen and oxygen and stop them recombining. Apparently, the process is even more efficient than nature’s photosynthesis. Take that nature.
