GDS Water Generator: Generate Electricity Without Fossil Fuels Screenshot from YouTube.com / GDS Technologies Water powered technologies have existed for nearly a century, but they were suppressed by the oil cartels through bribery and malicious actions. One of the main reasons why the oil cartels were able to suppress water powered technologies in the early 1900s was because “free energy” inventors didn’t have a convenient and effective way to publish information about their water powered generators. This all changed when the Internet was invented.

Google Launches an Online ‘Treasure Map’ for Potential Solar Customers Google Earth allows users to explore the far reaches of the globe from behind a computer screen with just a few clicks. Now, the same data that powers Google Earth will allow homeowners to explore their own rooftops to determine if they're suitable for solar panels. Google’s new online tool called "Project Sunroof” launched today in the San Francisco Bay Area, Fresno and the greater Boston area. Quadcopters Make 3D Scans Of Historic Buildings The heck with cranes and scaffolds, the University of Granada is using quadcopters to shoot images of historic buildings and digitize them to 3D. Humans continue to make their lives easier with drones. Small-sized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are already chasing after wanton criminals, inspecting contaminated power plants, even bringing us our order of delicious tacos. Now researchers at the University of Granada’s Department of Programming Languages and Computer Systems wants them to scan historical buildings and other points of interest so that they can be reproduced virtually in 3D. For a job that would otherwise require large, costly, and risky cranes, the quadcopters will be equipped with stereoscopic cameras and distance sensors and will be able to reach places tough for a crane to get to. They will be able to fly within inches of the building surface or monuments to capture high-definition detail.

This Is What Global Warming Looks Like Dr. Alun Hubbard, a researcher at Aberystwyth University's Centre for Glaciology in Wales, recently returned from Greenland's Petermann Glacier. Polar scientists last photographed the glacier, located in the northwest corner of the country, in the summer of 2009.

Key Enabling Technologies to spur Europe's technological leadership European Commission - Press release Key Enabling Technologies to spur Europe's technological leadership Brussels 28 June 2011. A key expert group set up by the Commission today set out guidelines on giving European industry a competitive edge in deploying the industrial technologies of the future (Key Enabling Technologies).

Download SolarEdge solar production data and save to csv I’ve got a nice solar panel setup on my roof, which uploads its data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal (this is the brand of inverter that I got). It appeared that this monitoring portal also has an API to automate getting the energy data. With me working in a company that works on energy savings, monitoring, consultancy etc, it’s a logical step for me to automate downloading the production of my panels, so my collueges at work can import this data in my energy monitoring portal at work and then they can do their magic calculations on them; which results in me getting nice graphs of my solar enrgy production. The purpose of the tool:

Space Colonization Basics DISCLAIMER: This web site is not a policy statement. It is intended to be an accessible introduction to the ideas developed in the Stanford/NASA Ames space settlement studies of the 1970s to support the annual NASA Ames Student Space Settlement Design Contest. Who? You. Or at least people a lot like you. Space settlements will be a place for ordinary people.

The Incredible Shrinking Greenland Left: Greenland in 1999. Right: Greenland in 2011. Credit: The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World. Mesh networking Illustration of a mesh network. A mesh network can be designed using a flooding technique or a routing technique. When using a routing technique, the message is propagated along a path, by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. To ensure all its paths' availability, a routing network must allow for continuous connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked paths, using self-healing algorithms.

Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla | Bob Neal | Ron Rockwell | Charles Brown T. Henry Moray | Edwin Gray | Paul Baumann | John Bedini Nikola Tesla was a multi-disciplinary genius. His discovery of the rotating magnetic field in 1882 lead to a series of US Patents in 1888, which gave us the AC electric power system still in use today. This one achievement earned him the honor of being called "The Man Who Invented the 20th Century". Solar Roadways - Phase II Prototype News: March 31,2014 We have released the first pictures of our new Solar Roadways prototype parking lot. Initial installation is complete, with some additions still to come (i.e., covers for mounting holes, mastic between panels, software for LED patterns).

The Tyranny of the Rocket Equation The Tyranny of the Rocket Equation By Expedition 30/31 Flight Engineer Don Pettit Tyranny is a human trait that we sometimes project onto Nature. This projection is a form of rationalization, perhaps a means to cope with matters that we cannot control. NuScale Power NuScale has designed an extraordinarily safe Integral Pressurized Water Reactor (IPWR) based on light water reactor technology proven in operation for over 50 years. NuScale intends to commercialize power plants that are modular and scalable in 45-Megawatt increments. Our design incorporates several features that reduce complexity, improve safety, enhance operability, and reduce risks.
