What are the Biggest Solar Projects?
Solar power will be necessary for space exploration and off planet colonies on the moon and Mars in the next few decades and our advances here on Earth will assist us with the knowledge we need to power them up. Some may not realize but we have come a long way in our solar technology in the last few decades and we are now ready to take this experience and knowledge to the next level; to build something out of this world. The future is now and the recent past proves we are up for this challenge.
Did someone say solar? Check out this craft. 69 Footer, goes 15 knots and is used as a Ferry in Sydney. The unit does have a small gas powered back-up, which is cool enough. The solar energy is stored in batteries, which power the vehicle.
Perfect for the River Walk Projects in larger cities or even the River Citie,s which are so well known here in the United States. It is really good to see that when kids learn math and science that they grow up to try new things and innovate for mankind isn't it? This is one of the biggest ships that is solar powered, we can wash that while it is on the water. How about the highest flying solar plane.
There are many large solar projects like this one in San Diego;
The US is in the lead on aircraft and most projects but other countries are also leading the way, for instance this apartment complex in Finland;
But Germany also has many projects and is known for their research in solar housing. As we travel to other planets and set up base stations and outposts. For us to do this correctly we will need to be able to have self sufficient power and we will need to bring everything with us. Now we are able to do that. Solar Panels in sheets of plastic and all we have learned from artificial biospheres. We must study these issues so we can use solar for things out of this world and those small and necessary things within this world, such as powering up Road signs for mini sensor networks to help control our infrastructure cars and help achieve maximum safety. We must continue our efforts to promote solar for an "array" of reasons. Currently the moon colony project has picked out a location, which can be used for mining, exploration and a base for space travels. It will most likely be powered by a system similar to these to run all its many electronics and temperature control. The Moon is said to be negative 55 degrees and special materials will be needed for insulation and lots of power for heating.

In 1986, scientists found a fuel-producing bacterium at the bottom of a Swiss lake. Now, they know how it works - Science Magazine
There is a secret zoo that runs encaged along the roads.They are liquid, semi-visible goliaths that rage through the streams and chunks of ordinary traffic, with the effervescent tendrils of mile-long tales whipping behind them like Chinese dragons.
The Fertilization Process and Implications of Test Tube Babies
Through the wonders of science, infertile couples who were previously unable to bear children, due to reasons such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, low egg quantities or advanced age of the mother, are now able to conceive through in-vitro fertilization. The results are babies known as test-tube babies which are technically conceived outside the womb.
Natural Gas Cost Increases; Want to know more?
A Thorn in the Side for American Business and Consumers - Natural Gas Shortages and Cost IssuesNatural Gas Issues and costs are tough on Americans and American Business. There have been many incentives for businesses and industries to use Natural Gas to assist in clean burning fuel.
Equipment for the Amateur Astronomer - Part 1
Binoculars and telescopes and other astronomy equipment and accessories are the meat and potatoes of amateur astronomy. A good pair of binoculars is what introduced me to the pleasures of stargazing many moons ago and only after a couple of years scanning the skies did I graduate to a telescope.
N400 Brain Wave to Assist in Learning and in Performance
In any important task you need to stay alert and in some professions someone could lose their life ifyou are not staying heads up or cause a serious accident where someone else has to pay with theirs. Not good, so what is the solution here? Here is a thought on learning, safety, brain waves and winning.
NASA Budget VS Social Programs
Balancing our quest for Space and its costs with the need of the people of our civilization is always at the top of the debate during NASA Budget hearings in the House and Senate. Some say that they think our primary planetary goal should be to colonize somewhere other than earth.
Electromagnetic Energy in Space
Tesla was always looking for a way to harvest electromagnetic energy and deliver it to the world wireless, after reading a biography about Tesla, I had come up with this concept.Why not put a satellite that counter rotates the Earth and is located at the poles.
How Satellite TV Systems Originated
What we know as satellite tv actually had its origins in the space race which began with the launching of the satellite Sputnik by the Russians in 1957. The first communication satellite was developed and launched by a consortium of business and government entities in 1963.
Submarine Propulsion and Internet web sources
Let us discuss the patent for the Submarine, which is now in the public domain, not that any foreign governments ever cared since they have been building them for years. Since my Grandfather built the first Ring Gyro at Stanford Research years back, I think it wise to discuss these things in a modern context.
How Albert Einstein Saw Things A Little Differently
Albert Einstein had just administered an examination to an advanced class of Physics students.As he left the building, he was followed out by one of his teaching assistants.
Composite Materials in Ships, Pipelines, Liners and Aircraft
One future problem, which has not sufficiently been addressed, is that of the fumes and smoke created when composite material burns. Composite material is a truly great human achievement in material science, however as we use this material in more and more places we need to be acutely aware of the risks and potential consequences of their use.
Einstein Half Dead
100 years ago Albert Einstein developed his Relativity Theory of physics that claimed that the universe is actually based on a space-time-gravity continuum (a non-mechanical version of Rene Descartes' earlier mechanical ether theory) and with time as variable and relative.Einstein believed that his theory disproved "all of Isaac Newton's physics theory", and that "Newton's theory" had disproved all earlier physics theories.
Space Probes Speed Up
Recently scientists were amazed that the space probes now leaving our solar system suddenly started to speed up? They should not be surprised because the gravity from the sun pulls in material from around our solar system and then compacts it. Just like our atmosphere is more concentrated closer in.
Flying a Beach Ball UFO
Recently some NASA Scientists were able to fly a MAV; Micro Air Vehicle using a laser to power it and then chase it around the room with the laser beam? Sounds like kids stuff, yet is has some incredible applications for other things. For instance we could use Whispering Windows and Talking Glass Technologies to propel helium filled beach ball.
Organic Decoy Devices for Warfare (ODDW)
We can genetically modify a rat to be the same body temperature as a humans, then parachute in several thousand rats into enemy territory. These rats will pick up the enemies advanced warning and intrusion sensors by way of heat signature.
Energy and America
America is entering into a time of Energy crisis. It could easily be the greatest crisis that human-kind is to face.
Methods of Improving Boiler Efficiency
With the rising cost of fuel prices, industries that use steam boilers for heating or power generation are hard pressed to operate at peak efficiencies.While steam consumption, leakages, and other heat transmission losses can contribute to the overall energy bill, this article focuses on the heart of the steam generator - the boiler.
The Bill Clinton Neuron And The Sweat Neuron
In the world of science, there is excited speculation about recent discoveries of individual neurons in the brain, with striking capabilities. They had discovered a neuron, which fired on recognition of just one special face.
The As Have it
ALTERNATE AND PARALLEL UNIVERSES: - The modern science of physics has opened many pathways or doorways to the infinite possibilities of 'creation'. Evolution is not the only operational factor in our life and its purpose.
Enemy UAV Defense is under consideration
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles should be shot down from the air rather than the ground because if they are flown tele-robotically the operator who is looking down and forward will not know where the anti-aircraft device is. If the enemy uses Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to draw fire, which is a smart move for them, then once fired upon the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle whether it is shot down or not has now located our weaponry and troops.
