(NASA) – As NASA prepares to send astronauts to the Moon through the Artemis Program, engineers are working on technologies that will give these explorers power – solar power, that is.

In space, the harsh radiation and huge temperature changes make for a challenging environment.

Dr. Lyndsey McMillon-Brown at NASA’s Glenn Research Center leads a study of solar cells made from a material called perovskite. This material has the potential to help power lunar habitats one day.

Dr. McMillon-Brown is the principal investigator for a project that is working on solar cells for space applications, including the Moon and Mars.
