Peter Toth

An interview with Peter Toth, CEO of Extraterrestrial Power. Originally from Hungary, Peter has a Masters in Computer Science from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. He has worked on embedded devices such as marine VHF, digital satellite news gathering units for Ericsson, and cupboard size computers for Endace.

Later, he branched out to producing silicon solar cells in the lab, and developed his passion towards green technologies - solar, wind and electric vehicles. This became the inspiration for making solar cells out of Moon soil which lead to Extraterrestrial Power. In this interview, he talks about his career and his startup, focusing on creating power and electricity using lunar soil for the wave of space missions settling the Moon and the solar system.
