hydrogen is one of the things we must do. If you have not read Tommorrow's
Energy, Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and the prospects for a Cleaner Planet, by Peter
Hoffmann, MIT Press 0-262-08295-0 or checked www.israel21c.org you might enjoy them as
much as I did. The 300 plus LNG Super Tankers that are currently being produced
will very shortly be transporting hydrogen produced by energy taken from the

beyond just talk. If we ever can get the politicians out of the way our
lifestyle is going to be really out of this world. There is much more to life
than ignorance and discovering what we already know and can accomplish is half

Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
