How to power a moon base

The sun’s energy can be stored in large blocks of lunar soil (called regolith), potentially powering technology on a future moon base.

Discovered in a quarry near Sydney, regolith can store thermal energy, which can then be converted to electricity.

Regolith can be “baked” at 1,100ºC to create large blocks that could also be used as building materials for a lunar base.
