Save Money with LED Holiday Lights

 

U.S. Department of EnergyWashington, D.C. – As we make preparations for cold-weather energy savings in our homes, many Americans are also preparing for the winter holidays putting up strings of holiday lights (also referred to as Christmas lights or decorative light strings). Light-emitting diode—or “LED”—holiday lights offer a quality alternative to incandescent lamps, enabling families to save energy and money this holiday season.

Electricity bills can grow during the holidays if you decorate with strings of lights. Light-emitting diode, or “LED,” holiday lights offer a quality alternative to traditional lights and save both energy and money. The Department of Energy estimates that if every household switched to LED holiday lights, the country would save approximately $410 million in electricity costs. «Read the rest of this article»

Hinode’s First Light, and Five More Years

 

Written by Karen C. Fox
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – On October 28th, 2006, the Hinode solar mission was at last ready. The spacecraft launched on September 22nd, but such missions require a handful of diagnostics before the instruments can be turned on and collect what is called “first light.”

Hopes were high. Hinode had the potential to provide some of the highest resolution images of the sun the world had ever seen — as well as help solve such mysteries as why the sun’s atmosphere is a thousand times hotter than its surface and how the magnetic fields roiling through the sun create dramatic explosions able to send energy to the farthest reaches of the solar system.

Vivid orange streamers of super-hot, electrically charged gas (plasma) arc from the surface of the Sun, revealing the structure of the solar magnetic field rising vertically from a sunspot. This extremely detailed image of the Sun was taken by Hinode's Solar Optical Telescope on November 20th, 2006 and showed that the Sun’s magnetic field was much more turbulent and dynamic than previously known.
