NASA researchers use extreme origami

Researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU) and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have figured out how to one day create a solar array 8.9 feet in diameter that could unfold to 82 feet wide. A panel that size could generate 250 kilowatts of power, compared to the current maximum of about 14 kilowatts. http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/18/nasa-origami-solar-panels/ #tech
