Planta Solar 10, Seville, Spain. "The 11 megawatt (MW) solar power tower produces electricity with 624 large movable mirrors called heliostats. [...] Each of the mirrors has a surface measuring 120 m² (1,292 square feet) that concentrates the sun's rays to the top of a 115 metre (377 ft) high, 40-storey tower where a solar receiver and a steam turbine are located. The turbine drives a generator, producing electricity."

The PS10 Solar Power Plant is world's first commercial concentrating solar power tower operating near Seville, in Andalucia, Spain. The 11 MW solar power tower produces electricity with 624 large movable mirrors called heliostats. It took four years to build and so far cost €35 million. PS10 produces about 23,400 MW·h per year, for which it receives €271 per MW·h under its power purchase agreement; equating to a revenue of €6.3 million per year. sustainable energy
Solar power tower concentrates the sunlight from the panels around it to drive turbines so the solar energy can be moved from sunny spots to cloudy cities through the existing power grid.

Design for a nomadic life Solar Tent for high-tech campers Futuristic concept tent can harness solar energy to provide electricity to portable gadgets. Orange, utilizing cutting edge technology in solar harnessing PVs, has reveled new updated Solar Concept Tent. What make it worth mentioning are its high-tech features that give the freedom of camping with all electronic facilities. Designed in association with American product design consultancy kaleidoscope, this futuristic tent can supply energy harnessed from sun to portable gadgets like cell phones and laptops through wireless charging pouch. Specially coated solar threads are woven into conventional fabric and can be folded easily. Because of its light weight it sets you free from carrying conventional heavy solar panels. The three directional glides can be rotated in any direction to follow the sun whole day. Not only this, but it incorporates ‘glo-cation’ technology which helps the festive-goers to track the location using either an SMS message or automatic active RFID technology. It will make the tent glow in dark so that you can easily recognize your destination. At the heart of the tent lies a central wireless control hub which indicates the amount of energy generated on a flexible touchscreen LCD display screen. Further, the tent includes an internal heating element embedded within the tent’s groundsheet which is controlled by the central hub.(o)
Not sure about this one bc I am an old school camper. No hair dryers computers etc What will be our future camping gadgets? One of the likelihood seems to be the solar powered tent from Orange – another eco-friendly and green energy gadget

Eclipse from Space The joint JAXA/NASA Hinode satellite captured this image of a solar eclipse on Jan 6, 2011. The mission is set to observe the upcoming annular solar eclipse on May 20, 2012. Scientists often use an eclipse to help calibrate the instruments on the telescope by focusing in on the edge of the moon as it crosses the sun and measuring how sharp it appears in the images.
The May 20, 2012 "ring of fire" annular eclipse will be viewable from eastern Asia, the Pacific and western North America
