Erbium isn’t likely on most folks news watch list, but the rare earth element is used more than we realize and a material doping improvement has significant potential across a wide set of fields. Arizona State University researchers have created a new crystal material compound called erbium chloride silicate.  Electrical engineering professor Cun-Zheng Ning at […]

An announcement is saying that cold fusion is actually a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) and includes the Rossi E-Cat and the Defkalion device.  Brian Wang, who has been in touch with a leading scientist Brian Ahern, has located the press release for the Flash Summit 2011 due up December 7, 2011 in New York […]

Scientists working at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have taken an important step towards understanding how nature makes plant food from nitrogen. For now feeding and fueling humanity uses synthesized ammonia in NH3 form by a process that requires high temperatures and pressures that consumes an estimated 1.5 percent of the world’s […]

Dr. Ole Martin Løvvik of Oslo University’s Center for Materials Science and Nanotechnology in Norway has been studying the thermoelectric effect at the nanoscale for several years.  Dr. Løvvik’s project in semiconductor physics is to develop oxidic thermoelectrics for generation of electricity from concentrated solar heat, waste heat from fuel cells and engines at high […]

Fracking Reality Check

November 17, 2011 | 3 Comments

Many people, the media and press included, are getting progressively more misinformed about oil and gas field reservoir fracturing.  So lets have a big picture review of what the situation is before making silly conclusions. Petroleum field hydraulic fracturing is simply forcing fluids and tiny sand sized solids into cracks the pressure creates.  Fracking can […]
