    They are used in many aspects of society for a variety of uses. In spacecraft design and planetology, it is the primary variable affecting equilibrium temperature. In construction, insolation is an important consideration when designing a building for a particular climate. In architecture, it can be used to design buildings that are cool in summer and warm in winter as well.
