Well, that's why what I was confused about. AFAIK, electrolyzing takes more energy than you get in the output. How is this a net gain?
I just can't understand how Hydrogen gas can be produced from sea water. Anyone care to enlighten me?
Just stopping by a week later and saying that this is quite an insightful post.
Slashdot has become so anti-science these days. I don't disagree that ITER has some problems, but calling the Higgs Boson one of the LHC's "few successes" is such a fucking understatement, I don't know what else could be.
That was half of the point of the damn thing, to verify the standard model. Finding the Higgs was no small accomplishment.
Republican governor, Republican general assembly, not to mention a Republican introduced this amendment.
Don't let facts get in your way.
Now, since I happen to be a voter here, I'll make sure no bozos like these get elected in my district come November.
they plan to throw it up on bitbucket
Eww. I'd honestly expect to throw up something called "BuGLE" in a...bitbucket. "VOGL" doesn't quite sound like an onomatopoeia for vomiting though.
Eh. I apologize.
Damn it slashdot, read the article. Although it doesn't claim explicitly that this is the first time this hypothesis has been tested, if anything, it appears this was just a study that verified that this hypothesis is correct. People already posited this and apply it for jets (see jets that fly in echelon formation), but, at least what is said and implied in TFA, this seems to still be something that is a matter of debate.
Yes, instead, we should see more articles about bitcoin and guns.
I'm assuming that they're saying because it works with plane wings, they can expect that's why birds do it (TFA says this), but I'm assuming they never tested the hypothesis on birds.
In fact, TFA suggests that a more rigorous test would be to put birds in a wind tunnel, which obviously wouldn't be too fun for the birds.
If you read the article, this has been posited, but now it has been tested by the experiment mentioned in the summary.
