Video: “The Light of Life” (Michael Clarage)

Thanks to John Oman for posting a link to this new video titled “The Light of Life” made by Michael Clarage, lead scientist of the SAFIRE Project. He discusses research that shows that living cells emit light, and that this light can change the behavior of other cells. Some examples include the fact that seeds […]

Freeze-Thaw Molten Source Battery for Energy Storage

Here’s an article from the Physics World website about a new approach to energy storage which is one of the biggest challenge facing the effort to move the electric grid to be powered by mostly renewable sources of electricity: https://physicsworld.com/a/freeze-thaw-battery-could-help-store-solar-and-wind-energy/ A battery that “freezes” its stored chemical energy for several months has been developed by […]
