HyperSciences looking to drill for geothermal power using ram accelerator

us20140260930a1-20140918-d00000

Washington State based drilling technology company HyperSciences, headed by aeronautical engineer Mark Russell has applied for a patent on a new type of ram accelerator that would be used to blast very deep holes in the ground—to access geothermal resources. I can really relate to this story as my farther and grandfather were well drillers …

Energy harvesting from self-induced flutter of a composite beam

windpower3

In an attempt to harvest the kinetic energy of airflow, researchers have demonstrated the ability to harvest energy directly from the vibrations of a flexible, piezoelectric beam placed in a wind tunnel.   While the general approach to harvesting energy from these “aeroelastic” vibrations is to attach the beam to a secondary vibrating structure, such …

Global Population Growth Compared to Energy Use

per-capita-world-energy-by-source

Ending 400-year trend, global population growth has begun to catch up with energy consumption during past 50 years. Will this restrict population growth? UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN If you’ve lived between the year 1560 and the present day, more power to you. Literally. That’s one of several conclusions reached by University of Nebraska-Lincoln ecologist John DeLong, …

Magnetic material unnecessary to create spin current

magntic spin

“What he found–that you don’t need a magnetic material to create spin current from insulators” Sometimes I come across a story out of left field that opens up so many doors. I hope you enjoy this one It doesn’t happen often that a young scientist makes a significant and unexpected discovery, but postdoctoral researcher Stephen …

I have decided to update this story as it appears PESN has reached the same conclusion that most of the hydrogen came from a aluminium, water reaction. Quoting Sterling Allen: Link: http://pesn.com/2015/07/26/9602642_Constantine-no-longer-with-SHT__reaction-primarily-chemical/ However, I am very upset that all this time they were talking about how many times overunity they are, strictly from the vantage point …

Sticky tape & phosphorus the key to ultrathin solar cells

download 2023

AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Scientists studying thin layers of phosphorus have found surprising properties that could open the door to ultrathin and ultralight solar cells and LEDs. The team used sticky tape to create single-atom thick layers, termed phosphorene, in the same simple way as the Nobel-prize winning discovery of graphene. Unlike graphene, phosphorene is a …
