Re: The Super Supercapacitor.

So, if it can charge crazy fast and discharge over time, and we can make it dirt cheap, can these be used for power generation? Build an array of a couple thousand or even million of them and hook the charging end up to a lightening rod or the post in town hall?

Some how "3 shots, confirmed scaling" would make me more optimistic than "500 shots, confirming scaling." Just saying. 500 shots seems like they have some pretty nasty question to deal with. My concern is that I thought this device would be able to run continuous. Was I wrong in...

<Snippety> I was formerly an AGW believer. I took the time to look at the arguments and data, both for an against AGW being significant, weed out the junk science from both sides, and I changed my mind. Have you actually looked at the skeptical arguments at all or do you simply dismiss them because...

... In all probability examiner thinks that it is the same way for thermalization. I think the same. thermalisation, might indeed turn out to be a problem. however, 'reasonable' calculations and a good deal of experimental evidence suggest that 'critical' thermalisation is avoided in the Polywell r...

Yes, water vapour is the greater warming agent. It has also the shortest residence time of all of the GHGs. This means that there is essentially the same amount in the atmosphere globally (there's also complications about feedbacks, but keep it simple at the moment). Where as CO2, methane, etc had ...

Is this possibly a joke thread, and I'm just missing the punch line? Or are some people on this board truely disagreeing with the global scientific concensus on AGW? In the same sense that some people really believe the world is 10,000 years old, that the second coming will happen within our lifeti...

I cannot show you a peer reviewed scientific journal for the value of pi, or the gravitational constant, or Earth's gravity at sea level, or the chemical composition of water, or the colour of the sky, or that space is a hard vacuum... Well, maybe you can't but I can. Using google scholar you shoul...

I'm really surprised that a site that prides itself on technical and scientific excellence is laying itself open to the dribble from the climate denial bots. Maybe look at what Mann has to say since his first paper. The link above is to his reanalysis of his original paper fixing some of the statis...

It's not unprecedented in that spot. You cannot relate central Greenland (or Vostok for that matter) into a global proxy You should restate that as you cannot relate central Greenland or Vostok to a global proxy UNLESS you are trying to show the correlation between CO2 and global temperature. Only ...

Maybe a simpler question as it relates to my problem. Can you mirror the phase change trick used by laser range finders to measure the length of loop of wire with an electronic wave? Can you simply send a sine wave and modulate it at a frequency then compare the source signal to the return signal at...

"The generally accepted range for interpretations of climate effects is 30+ years to smooth out cyclical processes (such as the 11-ish year solar cycle)." I suppose it's accepted by people who don't imagine there are longer cycles of significance. That's a proposition that's not merely un...
