Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

    This in interesting. A glimpse of the near future. I see the end of the conventional petrol (gasoline) driven motor car. New compact cities. Lightweight compact electric personal vehicles, many more bicycles (recent visit to bicycle friendly Berlin was amazing), Segways and mobile electric everything. Much more solar electric power generation. High altitude solar electric aircraft might replace some of the commercial satellite traffic. Biologically inspired engineering is the future.

    Interesting peak into the future.

      For electric vehicles, something like this is better than microbatteries:

      Supposedly can charge a car in less than a minute.
