Pretty cool, but didnt Tesla and Reich both do this without nano proteins 100+ years ago?


Tesla's was highly inefficient for transmission over distance.

Yes it was, which is why he wanted a tower in each town. Given time, he might have perfected it for longer distances though.

People already don't want to live under high tension lines. I can't imagine how itchy everyone would be with a huge tower in their back yard blasting out voltage. Sheesh.

Where does the absorbed water go?
I suppose that there must be some limit to how much water is absorbed before the system does not produce current.
If the absorbed water can be expelled by some means without requiring energy added, that would be great, but I have a feeling that it will require energy to 'dry' the nanowire film out.

I keep thinking that you can't get something for nothing.

Unfortunately , the law of conservation of matter and energy gets in the way.
Not to mention the law of diminishing returns .
Every
Single
Time

No matter what RT says.

So does nature.

Lol. Good point. The feeling of the hairs on your skin standing up 24/7 would be a bit much.

Doubtful, it's a factor of how electricity broadcasts through the atmosphere.

Or bounds of the ionosphere.

Either or, it's just not feasible.

And insanely inefficient. I don't know what the percentages would be, but broadcasting power into the air just so a few people can run their electrical machines would waste most of it. Like if you wanted a drink of water but instead of using a water fountain somebody sprayed a firehose into the air and told you to run under it with your mouth open.

That was an object impacting the atmosphere at a high velocity, tell me how that can be used on a safe and scalable level to power our grid.

Is it just turned into hydrogen and oxygen and passed into the atmosphere?

If so, they should capture the hydrogen and oxygen and burn it... yielding water which could be reabsorbed by the film again.If it does break down water into hydrogen and oxygen and yield energy in return.... this would be quite a breakthrough, as normally it requires energy to break the bond in the water molecules.
Doesn't anyone think this sounds too good to be true?

Giza Power Plant Machine existed. Christopher Dunn's theory: Quartzite+Zinc Chloride+Hydrochloric Acid chamber was set on top of a resonating water reservoir beneath that pyramid produced microwaves (collectible energy) that were dispersed atmospherically to granite obelisks around the Earth. That energy was stored then shared (free).

You forgot “kinetic energy” (like the free energy gravity thingys).

And heat differences (OTC, heat to electricity, etc).

TESS and conversion between energy are also there (renewables to chemical storage, heck batteries for that matter... RFBs are promising... it now about cost and the Masses getting their grubby hands on it).

Here is a kinetic energy gathering idea from the last couple weeks:

www.sciencedaily.com...

Now, if it can jump from the lab to the real world!



PS - I agree that a bunch of reactions are driven by solar radiation (Uh, ain’t that radiation, twice?). But the redox reaction also seems prevalent.

Ok. Just read the article...

So they put nanowires on E. Coli to turn them into “free energy bio-machines”??

That is kind of cool! But how long can E. coli last with a lightening rod sticking out of them!! LOL!

What if they mutate??! LOL!



I like crazy ideas... and this fits the bill!

I didn't know we had any of those. Are they dangerous?

I've never seen one that works. You know of any? This thing was fun to watch use up so much money, which any physicist would know can't work:

That's not really a source. Heat differences are ultimately coming from solar or from radiation (Geothermal for example is possible because of the radiation source, without which our planet would be colder).

I think you won't find much in the way of heat differences on Pluto, it's cold and cold. Being closer to the sun is part of the reason why earth can have heat differences, because of solar energy.

The question is....will it ever come to full circle and actually be implemented for our usage?

Tesla was on to this when he died...or was murdered.
