Giant glass balls might be the future of solar power

 Solar power has become increasingly commonplace in everyday life, showing up in everything from space stations to home power generators.

The only thing that has not changed over the years is the way we collect that energy: Most solar power generators today still use flat photovoltaic panels to collect the Sun's rays.
