Currently, researchers are hoping to alleviate the US's addiction to oil by transforming sawdust and wood chips into bio-oil. This thick black liquid could very well become an environmentally friendly substitute for the majority of our current petroleum products.
Bio-oil can be produced by using almost all organic material, including agricultural and forest wastes like corn stalks and chunks of bark mulch. The process of changing the raw biomass into bio-oil produces a product that is s ...more
It was recently determined that Bees aerodynamically speaking cannot fly. At least using all the known equations for lift, thrust, drag and weight used in the aerodynamic text books so routinely used by aerospace engineers and aircraft designers. But how can this bee possible? Well it seems rather obvious that the bee has evolved to use other strategies to fly.
This issue was recently brought up in an online think tank and discussed between myself and another member and you might find t ...more
Why can't we simply put a bunch of SpaceHab expandables into the Space Shuttle and take them to the Mars to orbit now? But you say the Space Shuttle cannot make it that far? Well sure it can. Simply send a set of rockets up on another set of rockets, once in orbit attach them to the space shuttle and then take the whole thing to Mars; one way. Get some real gung ho risk takers and just go for it. We can do this.
The humans can live in them for about 10-years or so until we get there wit ...more
If we are going to retire the Space Shuttles lets retire them to the moon, not some desert for old airliners or some museum. Lets use them as a refuge on the moon. You know when people build a house they often rent or live in an RV on the property until it is built?
Sounds like a good idea right? Sure it does that is why humans do things like this you see. So why can't we do the same thing with the space shuttle? Take a load of building materials, building robots and tunnel diggers. Tak ...more
Can humans stop locust plagues? Can they stop these devastating swarms of insects from taking out entire years crop yields in minutes. Devastating thousands of square miles of fertile agriculture lands in only a few days? Is there a way?
Do we call in an air strike? Is there an easier method, as these locust swarms can by over 5 miles across and they are not such an easy target to stop? One online think tank recently brought up this issue. Locust Plague researcher Warren Powers has some ...more
Is it possible to use ELF Extremely Low Frequencies to lower the jet stream and blow away locust plagues in North America? Indeed it is possible for jet streams to touch the ground although rare and it is possible that 200 plus mile an hour winds would certainly take care of a swarm of insects.
Perhaps such an ability to lower the jet stream could sway migratory birds with human stains of bird flu to pick another route or be blown off course? We could do this although it might take a l ...more
There has sure been a lot of research on Locust Plagues throughout the world and there is a good reason too. Locust Plagues can wipe out an entire crop in minutes and devastate hundreds and thousands of square miles of agricultural lands.
The problems created by these massive locust swarms has been recorded thru writings in ancient and religious history. But some are now asking how do they do it? How do locust swarms fly hundreds and hundreds of miles over water without stopping, landin ...more
The robotic future involves many aspects, some good and others not so pleasant, but isn't that in keeping with the history of mankind? Humans are always having wars and conflicts over various things. In the future many of our battles of political will over another civilization will be fought not by human soldiers but rather by robots. Which some would say might be a good thing although the robots will be killing other people in foreign lands.
Of course on the good side of things we will ...more
The chaos and order debate came up again recently in an online think tank and this time is was nothing like the regular debates, no, this time it was with regards to locust plagues and the question was is the locust swarm a chaotic mess or is their a method to this highly evolved creatures madness? One researcher who is an expert in Locust Swarms; Mr Warren Powers thinks that there is a remote possibility that in the locust swarm there might actually be more going on than we assume and so he ...more
The Locust Plagues threaten to devastate crops in Africa, but can we use modern technology, namely acoustic directional sound waves, to defeat them? One research believes it is possible and announced his plans to do so in an online think tank recently. Warren Powers has a plan and has done research which leads him to believe it is now possible to beat these locust plagues once and for all.
An acoustical sound wave beam will be blasted at the Locust Swarm while they fly over the lake cau ...more
