Experimental greenhouse with solar collectors

A greenhouse like this experimental structure funded by the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) at the University of Arizona, Tucson, can provide fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the year.  The venetian blind array is actually a solar collector that helps heat the greehouse and adjacent rooms during the winter and supplies heat to an underground storage unit for comfortable growing temperatures at night., Credit Line: Photo by Robert Townsend Photography, Tucson, Arizona, courtesy AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Physics Today Collection
