This research provided a first step in the design and fabrication of an eco-friendly photo-thermal deoxygenation graphene and aluminum super-capacitor bank for space satellite application. After many hours of researching, designing and redesigning this device I was finally able to understand that additional work is needed to obtain the desired supercapacitor properties. I was nevertheless able to store enough energy to light the LED. The testing of this device showed that it is possible create an energy storage device to supplement load needs such as payloads for space satellite application. The inexpensive and simple materials that were used in the construction of this supercapacitor bank can be improved. Using sodium acetate gel electrolyte over more commonly used electrolytes will be more environmentally safe over other toxic compounds that are released into the air.
