Space race sends local solar company soaring


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A local solar power company was selected to test out their new technology in orbit.

Businesses in New Mexico are turning to the sky as the second space race takes center stage in the land of enchantment. Here in Albuquerque, mPower designs and builds solar panels, an essential part of space travel.

“Early prototypes engineering and assembly devices and we were able to tests those and the ones that have really gotten the most attention is space power so that’s what we have been focusing on,” mPower Founder Murat Okandan said.
