Researchers report on the problem of hybrid perovskite prototypes after 10 months in space
Perovskite solar films developed by a graduate student in the Department of Physics at UC Merced while on an internship at NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) not just survived 10 months in space with minimal degradation, but the little damage they did incur was greater than 90% relatively easy to fix.

Solar scientists have actually taken a mathematical method used by Earth researchers to assess cyclic phenomena, such as the ups and downs of ocean tides, and used it to the confounding irregularity of cycles on the Sun. The outcome is a stylish "Sun clock" that shows that solar task starts and stops on a far more specific routine than could be recognized when taking a look at monitorings of the Sun in the standard method-- plotted linearly with time.
