The actual fuel cell stack is the layered cube shape in the center of the image Scheme of a proton-conducting fuel cell The first fuel cells were invented in 1838. The first commercial use of fuel cells came more than a century later in NASA space programs to generate power for probes, satellites and space capsules. There are many types of fuel cells, but they all consist of an anode, a cathode and an electrolyte that allows charges to move between the two sides of the fuel cell. The fuel cell market is growing, and Pike Research has estimated that the stationary fuel cell market will reach 50 GW by 2020.[3] History[edit] Sketch of William Grove's 1839 fuel cell The first references to hydrogen fuel cells appeared in 1838.

Handmade - Nea { Jewelry & Wall Wear } { Bijoux & Broderie } Map: Sacred Poetry - I In the clatter and clamor of our lives, we need ways to connect deeply with our souls. Whenever we feel depleted, poetry invariably refreshes and refuels us. Poets are cheerleaders for our spirits. They lift us up with their enthusiasm, and inspire us to go on no matter what. They notice things we overlook in our haste and hurry, and tutor us in the art of long looking. They open our eyes to the wonders that abound in the natural world, to the enchantments of animals, and the glories in the galaxies. Poets recognize spiritual teachers all around us. This poetry is sacred. April is National Poetry Month and as fine a time as ever to salute and to savor the sacred poetry of some of our favorite poets. — Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

axioms Contents Contents | rgb Home | Philosophy Home | Axioms | Other Books by rgb: | The Book of Lilith | Axioms is a work that explores the true nature of human knowledge, in particular the fundamental nature of deductive and inductive reasoning. It begins by embracing Hume's Skepticism and Descartes' one ``certain'' thing, and then looking for a way out of the solipsistic hell this leaves one in in terms of ``certain'' knowledge. Indeed, to the extent that philosophy in the past has sought to provide certain answers to virtually any question at all, philosophy itself proves to be bullshit - all philosophical arguments ultimately come back to at least one unprovable premise, usually unstated, and can be refuted by simply asserting ``I don't agree with your premises.'' The way out is to give up the idea of certain knowledge. Axioms by Robert G. Dedication No book is written in a vacuum. Notice Copyright Notice Copyright Robert G. Lulu Press www.lulu.com

In a New Yorker profile of Eagleman—entitled "The Possibilian"—Burkhard Bilger wrote:[7] Science had taught him to be skeptical of cosmic certainties, [Eagleman] told me. Reception[edit]
