About The Project:
The moon lacks an atmosphere and therefore is constantly bombarded with solar radiation in abundance. These radiations comprise of high energy alpha rays, beta rays, and gamma rays, among other radiations in the electromagnetic spectrum. While these radiations are hostile to humans, they can be harnessed to generate electrical energy. A viable energy source is one of the primary requirements in the attempt to colonizing the moon. The experiment aims to study the viability of such an electricity generator.
