Mechanical engineering researchers have developed a gel material that when heated draws water from humidified air and releases it as water vapor which can be collected for drinking or agriculture purposes. Sounds like it could be the answer for people in dry areas, so long as there is at least 15 percent humidity. Neat stuff.
“Meanwhile, there are 40 coal-fired power plants scheduled to be taken offline in the name of fighting climate change. No replacement sources for all of that juice have been proposed, to say nothing of having them come online.”
Texas, even after the deadly blackouts of February, 2021, will probably be among the sixteen.
So says virologist and medical doctor Robert Malone who says NPR’s recent message for the kiddies that Big Bird had to get jabbed to save Grandma is just perverse. We’re exposing children to risk of side effects like heart disease in order to save the elderly. The latest kabuki from the government, so Moderna and Pfizer can make lots of money. And their politico investors.
Launched on Christmas Day morning, the Webb telescope has got about six weeks of travel to get to L2, the second Lagrange point, which is 1.5 million kilometers away. (LaGrange points are where Earth’s gravity doesn’t affect objects in orbit.) With a bigger mirror than Hubble and in a much higher orbit, Webb will be able to peer much farther back in time (history) perhaps even to see the first galaxies. Will primarily look at the universe in the infrared wavelength versus Hubble’s optical and ultraviolet wavelengths. Should be interesting.
