Comments Off on Two hyperloop developers face-off to achieve ultra high speed travel

The race to bring ultrafast rail transport to America is heating up. A few years back, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk dreamed up the hyperloop concept , a high-speed transportation system that uses low pressure tubes to propel capsules full of passengers an average speed of 600 miles per hour. One company, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), is leading the charge to bring the concept to life with a test track under construction in California. Meanwhile, a confusingly similarly named but wholly unrelated company called Hyperloop Technologies has been quietly raising funds to build its own track in Nevada, and the competition is getting stiffer by the day .

Comments Off on Stanford researchers develop high-speed, low-cost filter

Eco Factor: High-speed filter purify water using electrified nanostructures. Our developing world is facing some serious diseases like cholera, typhoid and hepatitis, thanks to the dirty, unsafe water. In an attempt to provide a solution, researchers at Stanford University have developed a new high-speed, low-cost filter by simply dipping plain cotton cloth in a high-tech broth full of silver nanowires and carbon nanotubes, which could easily be implemented to purify water.

Comments Off on Europe Will Be Powered By Saharan Sun in Five Years

The super-sized solar projects being built in the Sahara desert will start generating and providing Europe with clean energy within the next five years, according to the European energy commissioner.  This is much sooner, than the initial 10-year time frame given to the project. The EU and many European companies are helping to fund a large scheme of solar projects in Northern Africa called Desertec in hopes of using that energy to meet a target of having 20 percent of its energy come from renewables by 2020.  The first phase of projects will have a capacity in the hundreds of megawatts, while over the next 20 to 40 years, the capacity will reach hundreds of gigawatts
