Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface.

The golden tiger also known as the strawberry tiger or the golden tabby tiger. The golden tiger is an extremely rare color variation caused by a recessive gene and now found only in captive tigers. Like the white tiger it is a color form and not a separate species. Their striping is much paler than usual and may fade into spots or large prominent patches. Golden tabby tigers also tend to be larger and, due to the effect of the gene on the hair shaft, have softer fur than their orange relatives.
