March 8, 2014 - This is a great time to be an astronomer. It appears we are discovering exoplanets by the boat load and we are finding out that solar systems, some like ours, and some bizarrely different, seem to be the rule and not the exception.
March 8, 2014 - For several years I worked with an Australian company developing a new skimmer technology for remediating oil spills. That got me very interested in this subject area. So I keep my eyes open for new technological innovations that can address what remains an industry-wide problem for fossil fuel and transportation providers.
March 7, 2014 - The greatest challenge renewable energy providers face is achieving a sustainable continuous supply of guaranteed power delivered to consumers either through the grid or off grid. That's the single issue holding back large-scale adoption of renewables.
Seth MacFarlane, the multitasking comedian and creator of Family Guy, and other raunchy fare, happens also to be the driving force behind the new version of Carl Sagan's classic science show COSMOS, which will appear Sunday on Fox and simultaneously on other networks, hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. I know a number of the writers and producers who have striven to create something stunning, vivid and updated for the 21st Century.
February 26, 2014 - You have to admire Elon Musk and his "musketeers" at SpaceX. They continue to show us a future for spaceflight which fits with our fantasies - reusable rockets that take off from a space port and return to Earth landing softly. Why NASA or other spacefaring nations haven't gone this route has been surprising.
February 25, 2014 - You've finished your work day, hopped on the bus, transferred to the subway and now are ready for that last couple of kilometers walk home. Wait! Just unfold your Urb-E Commuter and ride the remainder of your trip home.
February 24, 2014 - The answer is poo. But before I explain further let's look at what bioreactors are all about. For example, you are a bioreactor. You convert food and oxygen and other inputs into energy and you eliminate what you don't burn. All life on the planet is governed this way - intake, convert to energy, eliminate. And what gets eliminated still contains lots of energy potential.
February 23, 2014 - We lost the WiFi connection yesterday and hence no postings appeared. Instead I read by the pool seeking additional information on the issue of construction materials and carbon. I also got in quite a bit of swimming.
February 21, 2014 - While here in Florida I have had two interesting events occur related to our van, a 2006 Mazda MPV.
