There isn't that much to gain from economy of scale, as those types of cells are already produced in 100s of millions per year. So we are realistically looking at something like halfing the price at most, not cutting it down by an order of magnitude or something.
What matters, in the end, is the amount of energy a battery can store.
With Lithium Sulfur cells, the voltage is a little more than half as high as for Lithium Ion batteries, so the initial advantage is not as large as it might seem from the mAh numbers.
Also, didn't Rosie the Riveter quite after a couple weeks because the job was too dirty and dangerous?
Seems like a bad goal to set...
Oh, yeah, you COULD do it.
If you overengineered the ships (making them 5 times more expensive) AND had complete checks agter every 1000 operation hours of everything (which is basically every round-trip for a container ship).
Wrong. Per default, Autobahn has not speed limits.
Unless indicated otherwise, if you enter the autobahn, NO LIMIT.
Yes, there are speed limits quite commonly, but if you discount Stadtautobahn stuff and the Ruhrpott, 2/3rds of it are unlimited. Case in point: You can drive Stuttgart/Berlin and have all but 50km or so of the distance unlimited.
In theory. In practice, helium will interact with, for example, iron alloys (steel), ending up with de-electonized protons migrating through the bulk metal, and at the other end snatching up some of the fermi-gas and going their merry way.
The same way, in vacuum systems, getting rid out of the stupid hydrogen magically appearing out of nice stainless steel enclosures that have been ultrasonic cleaned and baked under vacuum is a real problem. I have seen suggestions of burning the whole chambers under vacuum at 650C to get the protons out, and even that isn't really the end of things.
How the hell do you get a 15k phone bill?
And why are you bragging about your stupidity to not get a contract to accomdate your usage profile?
Are you posting in Bizarro land?
Your own link tells us that over 91% of the users of chrome didn't even encounter a SINGLE java applet in a whole MONTH.
Thats an absolutely overwhelming sign that java is almost extinction-level rare in the web. Hell, I would bet that the rate of people encountering embedded MIDI files was much higher.
The F16 was always the bargain bin little sister of the F15 (the "real" fighter jet).
Its main appeal was that it was _cheap_, not that it was good.
Obviously that comment IS needed and insightful, seeing all the mouth breathers who cannot tell about the RT from the Pro.
People cry about 900g being heavy, but try to find a laptop of that size thats even remotely as capable. Even the smallert Macbook air is heavier, and its inferior in every single way.
Plus the docking station with 4k capable video out should take care about it anyway.
Ah, right. Because nobody cares about an order of magnitude speed difference.
Because all those nice, docile consumers in their walled google/apple gardens don't need to MAKE anything, and media decoding is done in hardware codecs.
I guess your office is stuffed with professional web-browsers?
If the US wanted bitcoin gone, they could have done so.
There exists something called an "51% attack", which means that anybody having more than half the hashrate of the Network is acknowledged as the boss and can do as he wants (stuff like spending the same bitcoin multiple times, manipulate the difficulty of future block mining, etc).
Back in April, before mass ASICS, the US could have trivially gotten that far. Hell, last year anybody willing to spend 5-10 million could have done it with off-the-counter hardware.
For an agencies who have a double digit BILLION black budgets, this is totally peanuts.
I don't think its disturbing to be able to buy them "so easily".
I mean, seriously. You need a credit card or paypal to buy from them, so you are no infant in the "I eat metal stuff" phase.
And secondly, you have dozens of way more deadly things in your appartment at any time, anyway.
