Future Fuels France: Hydrogen squeezed from Rocks
posted by on Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 08:45 PM

gfoat writes "It has been reported that Scientists from the University of Lyon have discovered a way to split hydrogen gas from water, using rocks. The new method may promise a new green energy source, providing hydrogen from a simple mixture of water and rocks. The method uses low temperatures and involves no fossil fuel. This type of "greener chemistry" could promise a route to new sources of free energy at a lower cost. See the full report at bbc news"

gfoat writes "New world markets are opening up as the cost of fossil fuels continues to rise and the problems associated with changes in the chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans are recognised. Ways are being found to store energy from intermittent renewable sources, including advanced batteries, hydrogen, ammonia, biomass and synthesised gases."

Future Fuels Higgs boson-like particle discovery claimed at LHC
posted by on Wednesday, July 04, 2012 - 07:50 AM

gfoat writes "Cern scientists reporting from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have claimed the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson. The particle has been the subject of a 45-year hunt to explain how matter attains its mass. Both of the Higgs boson-hunting experiments at the LHC see a level of certainty in their data worthy of a "discovery". Could this open up new energy technologies for our future? See the full article at BBC NEWS"

Future Fuels UK: First commercial aircraft to be powered by biofuel
posted by on Sunday, February 24, 2008 - 07:07 AM

gfoat writes "A commercial airline to be powered partly by bio fuel has taken off from London Heathrow today. The plane will have no passengers on board. The Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747 flies to Amsterdam's Schipol airport. The 747-400 / registration GV-WOW, operating as Flt. VS811P, is reported to fly using a 20% biofuel blend of coconut and babassu oil in one of its fuel tanks. Branson said his fuel was completely environmentally and socially sustainable. This test flight will be piloted by Captain Geoff Andreasen, Virgin Atlantic's Chief Boeing pilot. The 747 took off from London Heathrow (11.30am 24/02/08) and will arrive in Amsterdam at 13.30 local time if things go to plan! The fuel is said to be provided by Seattle-based Imperium Renewables. The airline and its partners are testing a number of bio fuels to determine which is most effective at altitude. The jet engines and aircraft needed no special modifications to take the fuel. Could this be the start of a Green Airways ? "

Future Fuels Mars: Spirit Rolls All Six Wheels Onto Martian Soil!
posted by on Thursday, January 15, 2004 - 06:41 PM

gfoat writes "NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit successfully drove off its lander platform and onto the soil of Mars. The robot's first picture looking back at the now-empty lander and showing wheel tracks in the soil set off cheers from the robot's flight team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.

Future Fuels Hydrogen Market to Nearly Double To 1.5 Billion By 2008
posted by on Tuesday, January 13, 2004 - 06:46 PM

gfoat writes "Hydrogen is environmentally friendly. Hydrogen, it is believed by scientists, can one day economically replace oil and natural gas as the world's primary energy source. A long-term aim of the governments of North America, Europe, Japan, and other Asian nations is to develop hydrogen energy economies. The U.S. Department of Energy has identified hydrogen storage and production as a priority for research and development. Billions of dollars a year will be spent to make a hydrogen economy practical.

Future Fuels MARS: Where is Beagle 2 ?
posted by on Tuesday, January 06, 2004 - 01:02 PM

gfoat writes "The Ultra High Frequency (UHF) receivers on Mars Express are ready to communicate with Beagle 2. On 7 January, at precisely 13:15 CET, ESA’s Mars Express orbiter will be in both an ideal flight path and an ideal communication configuration, right over the Beagle 2 landing area, at about 86 degrees, allowing ground controllers at ESA’s European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany, to catch the slightest beep from the Martian surface.

Future Fuels UK: Making Hydrogen Happen In The Tees Vally
posted by on Tuesday, January 06, 2004 - 09:29 AM

gfoat writes "The Tees Valley Hydrogen Project was established to provide the final link in the chain that takes new energy technologies from development to marketplace. Its focus is to capitalise on assets created over the years by some of the world’s leading chemical companies based in the Tees Valley and to ‘scale-up’ developing technologies into commercially viable operations.

Future Fuels MARS: Beagle 2 has reached the Martian surface !
posted by on Thursday, December 25, 2003 - 11:36 AM

gfoat writes "Beagle 2 has reached the Martian surface but still we are not sure if it did survive the 20,000 kilometres per hour ride! It was thought that the friction with the thin atmosphere would slow it down as it descended and the lander would be protected by a heat-shield. Scientists still do not have the answers. Did the two parachutes work; did the large gas-filled bags inflate to protect the lander as it bounced on the surface? When Beagle 2 came to a halt did the lander open up, and did the solar panels unfold? Only time will tell. Reports suggest that the team is conducting a continuous search for Beagle 2. This is not the case - there are only select communication windows when a search can be carried out. The next window occurs this evening when the Jodrell Bank telescope will seek out a signal from Beagle 2. At 10:40 pm it will begin to transmit an on/off sequence each minute - like very slow Morse Code - and about nearly 9 minutes later the signals should reach Earth after a journey of 98 million miles. The next chance to try again with Odyssey will be Boxing Day evening. Read the full details here."
