Radio Shines With Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

100909_rg_heliodye_01.jpgIn a perfect world, we would slowly wean ourselves off fossil fuels and embrace green technology. The thing is that it’s hard to let go of them when we can’t find green alternatives that provide as much power. Dye-sensitized solar cells promise to bring solar cells to everyone cheaply.
