Turns out, you won’t find a standard 72-cell silicon solar panel on any NASA spacecraft. The missions are too long and the environment is too harsh—alternating between extreme heat and extreme cold, flush with radioactivity—for terrestrial solar. As a result, NASA Glenn, in conjunction with the larger tech and university communities, has developed solar cells that can survive long-term use in space.

John Weaver
John Fitzgerald Weaver has worked in the Finance and Solar fields since 2005. He is currently employed by Beaumont Solar Co. with a focus on Commercial and Utility Development. John is a hands on salesman, with a strong engineering background who got into solar power because he felt a lack of inspiration in banking:

“Solar power aligned with many needs – my interests (technology), my morals (I think solar is important on multiple species wide levels), my need for growth (there is a lot to learn in this growing industry), and my desire to be part of something important (energy is one of the most important and fundamental – if not the fundamental – of human needs). I chose the Solar Life”
