Do you know where spacecraft get their energy from?
Spacecraft sent into space have neither enough space to refuel nor any station like a petrol pump in space, then where would these spacecraft, satellites or telescopes get electrical energy to stay active for a long time? Are there
The answer is simple, solar panels. Yes! Solar panels are installed in machines used in spacecraft or other space operations. Which convert the sun’s rays into electricity, just like the solar panels in our homes.
However, the difference between solar panels in the home and solar panels in space is that the sun is always brighter there than in the world because we spend the night on batteries.
But some machines are also sent to observe distant planets where there is very little sunlight. Such machines, instead of solar panels, have nuclear power plants that have the potential to convert long-term nuclear energy into electricity.
