The endangered giant panda may soon be able to add a new representative to the ranks of their species, according to officials at the Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna. Yang Yang and Long Hui, two A. melanoleuca representatives living in captivity at the Austrian capital's zoo, mated twice this week. Coincidentally, the zoo was also the home to the first naturally conceived panda to be born in Europe--Fu Long, which was born in August 2007. The mating season for giant pandas lasts from March through...

Though the solar industry today predominately produces solar panels made from crystalline silicon, they remain relatively expensive to make. New players in the solar industry have instead been looking at panels that can harvest energy with CIGS (copper-indium-gallium-selenide) or CIGS-related materials. CIGS panels have a high efficiency potential, may be cheaper to produce and would use less raw materials than silicon solar panels. But unfortunately, manufacturing of CIGS panels on a...
