Technology Update

September 12, 2007

Today is a great day or so it may be if the discovery I am telling you about isn’t a hoax(and it isn’t).

John Kanzius a scientist from Erie was testing his new experiment designed to treat cancer and while attempting to desalinate sea water using radio frequencies, he noticed hot red flashes in the salt water.  He decided to investigate an within a few days he had salt water burning like a candle in a test tube.  This sparked the interest and disbelief of other scientists, the possibilities were enormous.  Dr. Runtom Roy of Penn State University held a demonstration proving that indeed the science is sound and the experiment was not a hoax.  The radio frequencies weakened the bonds in the salt and water and the result: hydrogen was released.  Currently Mr. Kanzius and Dr. Roy are discussing this new discovery with the department of defense and energy to see what possible uses of the technology are and the efficiency.  If this went through, we would no longer have to use oil, our energy could be made from sea water.

So as you can see this is not a hoax!

Engadget: FORD hydrogen car reaches speed of 200 miles and hour

August 16, 2007

Looks like minuscule RC cars aren’t the only alternatively powered vehicles trying to break 200 miles-per-hour, as Ford just became the “world’s first automaker to set a land speed record for a production-based fuel cell powered car.” The whip used to set the bar, of course, is none other than the Fusion Hydrogen 999, and it reportedly reached over 207 miles-per-hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah without using a drop of gas. Apparently, Ford is hoping that this showcase of speed will somehow translate into advancements that will help us common folk get to work and back sans gasoline, and while we’ve no idea when a fuel cell propelled Cobra will roll off the line, it did note that a number of fuel cell propelled Focus vehicles were still burning down the roads as part of an ongoing study.
