Is this a scientific possibility? Batteries powered by moonlight?
The sun is 500,000 times brighter than the full moon, therefore a lunar cell would have to have 500,000 times the area of a solar cell for the same power output, so a simplified answer is that a 1 metre x 1 metre solar cell would give the same output as a lunar cell 707 metres x 707 metres. That's assuming no clouds in the way, and the moon at its zenith. Also, full moon only happens once a month, whereas the sun rises every morning. So while it is "scientifically possible" to generate a tiny electric current from moonlight, it would not be any practical use.
But he got to screw Linda Ronstadt, which is one more than you have ever managed...
I've done WAY better than Linda..... and have you seen her lately?
I prefer to remember her like this
