Solar-Powered Stadium Roof

In your own words, what is Spinoff technology?Spinoff technology is something originally invented for use in space but, was changed, and is now used on Earth.

My idea for the new Spinoff is a stadium roof made out of NASA's fiberglass material with solar panels on top that can retract separately.

My Spinoff works. Some of the strenghths are that this is a two in one deal - solar panels and a super strong fiberglass stadium roof. Another strenghth is that people are willing to pay a lot for football, so it will make a lot of money. A weakness might be that it will cost a lot of money.

Football padding, baseball pads and soccer shin guards are all made from a materialNASA invented to increase passenger comfort and accident protection.

The NFL 's first retractable stadium roof was made possible by NASA 's technology used in apollo space suits. Structures made from this moisture resistant fiberglass material stronger than steel but weighing no more than 5 ounces per square foot are energy efficient, immune to pollutants and ultra violet rays, and are translucent enough for natural grass playing fields.

These solar panels are a great source of energy invented to be used as a diverse method of energy and to decrease the use of fossil fuels.
