"Power to gas" is a key concept when it comes to storing alternative energy. This process converts short-term excess electricity from photovoltaic systems and wind turbines into hydrogen.

Global Warming Not Primary Cause Of Svalbard-Area Methane Release
2014-01-03 07:47:38

Natural processes, not global warming, are primarily to blame for the dissolution of the fragile, ice-like solid fuel substances known as methane hydrates, according to new research published online Thursday in the journal Science.

Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...

Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
