Back 2 the Future

There's a world of difference between truth and facts, facts can obscure the truth.(Maya Angelou)
It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense. (Mark Twain)

Back 2 the Future

Postby zuluhotel » Thu Dec 22, 2011 6:50 pm

Any of you remember the films back to the future :thunbsup If I remember correctly it was in the second film that the Doc comes back from the future had refuels the time machine from a garbage can :scratch Well now it seems that now we are a step closer to inventing this ! Fuel from waste material- not time travel :rotfl
-well not yet anyway :-D
I read an article on cnet,com about eco batteries

At the Eco-Products 2011 exhibition in Tokyo, Sony showed off a bio-battery prototype that gets its power from shredded paper. In the demo, pieces of paper and cardboard were dropped into a water mixture to turn on a small fan. Sony the Japanese electronics company took a lesson from nature to achieve this wondrous thing.
:scratch
Similar to the way termites and white ants digest wood and convert it into energy, Sony uses an enzyme called cellulase in the water mixture to break down the paper to glucose sugar. The sugar is then processed by additional enzymes and oxygen and converted to hydrogen ions and electrons, which provide the fuel for the battery.

Though the bio-battery isn't as powerful as the batteries available on the market today, it does have enough juice to run an MP3 player :clap . Proving that an environmentally friendly battery is possibility. Plus the bio-battery does not contain any harsh chemicals or metals :thunbsup .
This isn't the first time Sony has experimented with green battery technology, because the company showed off a sugar-powered battery back in 2007
What's next? :scratch Well we're going to Mars :clap We're closer to proving travel at the speed of light is probable :yes then back to the future :joker quantum uncertainty :indifferent

I enjoyed your article but I have to take difference over the fabled "speed of light issue" :no

Everything else is spot-on and highlights the amazing advances in Chemistry that have happened in recent times due to our increased understanding of Physics, which includes chemistry. None of the chemical advances, however, do anything to push us towards the absolute goal:- "breaking the Light Barrier"... It ain't going to happen :glasses

In fact if we did, impossibly, break the barrier, Physics, thus Chemistry and every other scientific discipline would break down and we would be sitting here discussing philosophy... except that we wouldn't be because the internet would not exist. Oh dear!

Far more realistic to consider Crawley Town trouncing Barcelona 10-0, which is infinitely more probable than breaking the light barrier :thunbsup

Happy Christmas to all.
