April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from the Los Alamos National Laboratory and NASA has demonstrated a new concept for a reliable nuclear reactor that could be used on space flights. The Demonstration Using Flattop Fissions (DUFF) experiment produced 24 watts of electricity, demonstrating the first use of a heat pipe to cool a small nuclear reactor and power a Stirling engine. A team of engineers from Los Alamos, the NASA Glenn Research Center and...

Get Where You’re Going Using Less Gas And Oil
2012-10-05 15:12:34

A quick pit-stop at the gas station is enough to put a good dent in your wallet. New technology is set to lower the high cost of filling up your car, by enabling combustion engines to consume two to three percent less gas and significantly less oil, while eliminating a step in engine production. An engine without oil will not survive for very long. Pistons need plenty of lubricant in order to be able to move within the cylindrical sleeves in the engine block. Two things are known to raise...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
