“This is truly a scientific moonshot and we did it. We landed on the moon,” said David Reitze, LIGO’s executive director.
Gravitational waves detected: Einstein would be thrilled! David Reitze and his team did it!
On September 14, 2015, scientists from the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration observed the collision and fusion of the two black holes by directly measuring the gravitational waves emitted during the collision using the LIGO detectors. Read More
different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.
Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.
Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More
Ring Receiver Reactor Recuperator produces synthetic fuels
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed a prototype machine that utilizes the sun’s energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into the molecular building blocks that can be utilized as transportation fuels. If researchers can make this device produce twice the energy generated by the natural process of photosynthesis, it will do great service to environment. It will pave the way to recycle CO2. Read More
