Check out this Life magazine photo retrospective of designer Charles Eames playing with solar energy.  This is way back in 1958!

A commenter on the images was saying how if we’ve had solar energy experiments going on this long, he wonders why the government continues to subsidize the fossil fuel industry. Instead the installation of solar panels should be required on homes, especially in the southwest of the US, where there is so much plentiful sunshine.  Imagine what that would do to the energy outlook in the country!

Meanwhile let’s keep making our own solar panels and do our part.
