ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of researchers to harness solar power in order to support earth-bound communications. It states that Motorola is collaborating with a third party to develop a pocket-size fuel-cell charger for two-way radios. A way to mimic the energy storage system of a plant has been developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers. The photosynthesis process was studied by researchers, particularly the ability of plants to absorb light.
