The goal is to provide a safe location for research projects for next-generation applications. Sam Cobb, Hobbs Mayor, said the research facility will look just like an empty city […]

How about choosing a fuel made from bio-gas instead of crude oil? Rosemary Ostfeld, contributor to Green Patent Blog, published a story today that describes a process invented by Primus Green Energy of Hillsborough, New Jersey that converts biomass into 93-octane fuel. The company currently produces several kilograms of  gasoline per hour at a pilot […]

@Solarfeeds published a story this morning that may give entirely new definitions to recycling and biofuels. For decades, silicon has been a primary ingredient in semiconductor and transistor technology; however, new nano-sized semiconductors rely on something more organic: proteins found inside the human body. Tel Aviv University (TAU) researchers have created a new generation of protein-based transistors which […]

The U.S. University of Maine’s Director of Advanced Structures and Composite Center, Dr. Habib Dagher, was interviewed on the most recent podcast of NPR’s Science Friday program. He talked about playing with models. Dr. Dagher leads the Deep Sea Wind Consortium, with goals of establishing 100 wind turbines, each as tall as the Washington Monument, […]

Something exciting is happening at one of my favorite travel destinations. Of course, I’m talking about China Lake, California, located in the relatively remote Western Mojave Desert region of the state. When I was a flight tester for the US Department of Defense based out of Patuxent River, Maryland, I looked forward to trips to […]

My uncle (who’s approaching 80) once told me about growing up in a rural farm house without indoor plumbing. When he was a boy, the family’s toilet was an outhouse. He said he remembers his mom’s reaction upon hearing his dad’s plans to install a bathroom in the house. She was horrified and deeply offended. […]

The phrase, “fight fire with fire,” doesn’t apply here. Neither does “fight fire with water”.  OK… how about we fight fire with energy? Good idea! Firefighting technology is advancing beyond water and even flame suppressing chemicals. In the near future, firefighters may have no need for storing large quantities of flame suppressing chemicals, or thousands of gallons of water. […]

Outside Online magazine has a fascinating article on renewable energy and front-line fighting with the United States Marines. Back in 2003 during the second Iraq war in 2003, General James Mattis commanded the 1st Marine Division during their initial drive into Baghdad, and found his division repeatedly outpacing their own fuel resupply. They were required to reduce […]

Last December, NewYorkTimes.com published a “2010 Year In Ideas” feature, showcasing ideas that could become 2011’s next big thing. One of the coolest things was a turbine-free wind power invention by Professor Francis Moon of Cornell University. Professor Moon’s invention, called Vibro-Wind, captures wind energy from vibrations instead of spinning blades. His design makes use […]
