Default Australia solar power

We really do have the best innovators here. Its a pity we are not so good at commercialising.

A team of researchers at the University of New South Wales has broken its own record for photovoltaic efficiency. This advance comes through use of what are called “multi-junction” solar cells that use prisms to split sunlight across its spectrum, to hit multiple receptors targeted at different wavelengths.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
