Solar Energy the key to Limitless Energy Source!

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

We all know that energy is never destroyed, but simply converted from one from into another. Energy can be consumed, utilized, or transformed. Energy does not dissipate, but changes into another form. Now when it comes to energy, the world is in short supply of natural resources that are being consumed at an alarming rate. This consumption of natural resources forces scientists and researchers to find other means of energy. By doing so, a group of MIT researchers have discovered how to utilize the sun’s energy to create limitless supplies of energy. This limitless energy can be a game changer for not only America, but the entire world. As this technology gains more traction and popularity, this breakthrough done by MIT Researchers is an insight into the future.

 

Solar panels have been around since 1839 when they were discovered by a French scientist by the name of Edmond Becquerel.  Over the years, other scientists such as Albert Einstein developed ideas and concepts for solar power and its uses. Solar power and its uses through solar panels have made an impact all over the world as they are widely being used on homes, power plants, industrial locations, and even for government agencies. Now with such a diverse field of utilization, one must ask, why is it that everywhere is not using solar power? Well, the answer is quite simple. Solar power involves getting solar panels and solar panels can be expensive. The other problem with solar panels is that they only convert about a quarter of the sun’s energy into usable electricity.  The number of solar panels needed to fully power a home is what differentiates why electricity is currently more viable than solar power.

 

The team at MIT may have found a solution to this continuous problem.  By changing the process of how solar energy is converted, they have managed to use high temperatures to increase efficiency.  This new process increases the efficiency of solar panels by increasing their electrical yield potential.  The process converts the sunlight into heat, and then converts the heat back into light again. The intuitive new process utilizes an absorber-emitter. This absorber-emitter has a layer of carbon nanotubes that react to the sunlight converting it into heat.  The temperature ideal for the conversion is 1,000 degrees Celsius. From an outward standpoint, that temperature is only found in lava and volcanoes. However, if that heat is redirected and concentrated, then this heat can easily be achieved through the absorber-emitter.  After this light is converted to heat, it is then converted back into an increased absorbable light for the solar panels to utilize. Now as opposed to only converting ¼ of the sunlight, the solar panel is now capable of converting the sun light to usable electricity at up to 50% conversion.

This creation of the absorber-emitter essentially acts as a funnel when the light passes through it. The solid black nanotubes do most of the work in the conversion process.  These nanotubes are comprised of photonic crystals These crystals filter out the unusable photons back out, while keeping the usable energy to be converted. This process they have dubbed to called “photon recycling”.  Through photon recycling the heating process is drastically increased to where the 1,000 degrees Celsius needed to do the conversion is easily attained.

MIT is constantly making strides in research to come up with more efficient and effective ways for technology and people to exist. The more they complete their research is the more we can do to survive. We at IT GURUS OF ATLANTA commend this breakthrough in science and look forward to its implementation as the world gears more towards green energy.

Futuristic Transportation Already Testing – Hyperloop One is making Leaps of Speed!

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Nowadays the most common forms of transportation are cars, buses, trains, airplanes, and even boats. We tend to know the safety, reliability, and efficiency of using these vessels. They have been a part of society for many, many years. By using these vessels, we have learned to deal with traffic that causes delays in motor vehicle transportation, airplanes that get delayed for various unforeseen reasons, and boats that also run late due to inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances. We have begun to understand and compromise in order to accommodate life’s unknowns that tend to come up.

What if there was another method of transportation that could transport passengers almost as fast as an airplane without hesitation due to the weather or delayed due to traffic? Would you be willing to try it out and make it a part of your daily transportation routine? Well, the people at Hyperloop One believe they have the answer and they have been testing their resolve with the testing of Hyperloop One.

 

Many people wonder what consists of a Hyperloop.  Well it’s an environmentally friendly and efficient new way of transportation.  Many depictions of a hyperloop were in James Bond “The Living Daylights” and “The Polar Express”. Now the dream of the Hyperloop has been brought to life by a company called by the same name “Hyperloop One”. Hyperloop One has begun testing their version of the Hyperloop in Nevada, just north of Las Vegas. Hyperloop One is now on it’s way to getting this new mode of transportation on the market as soon as they can complete their testing to show its ability to not only transport safely, but also faster than any other mode of transportation and equal to that of an airplane, but without the high altitudes.

Hyperloop One anticipates at the peak of the Hyperloop introduction into society, they are anticipating speeds at the speed of sound or 750 miles per hour. The two tests in the desert showed promising. The first test conducted showed the pod tapping out at 2Gs of acceleration and a top speed of 70 Mph. The second test, the company published a video showing the pod tapping out at 192 Mph to give an idea of the direction it is heading towards getting faster and faster in its journey towards the speed of sound.

The mechanics behind the Hyperloop is the Hyperloop One is composed of a 1 passenger pod, which is 28 feet that is composed of aluminum and fiber for its outer shell. The pod was able to reach the top speed of 192 miles per hour in a mere 5 seconds and covering 300 feet before slowing down. Hyperloop one is powered by an electric propulsion system. The pod is pulled along a low-pressure tube by magnetic accelerators which push the pod along the tubes. This system gives the pod its ability to move quickly and slow down equally the same. To deal with air pressure buildup in the front of the pod, the team of Hyperloop One has added air compressors at the front of the pod which moves the air to the rear, while helping to keep the pod aloft by using the air displacement. This new technology could turn a 6 hr trip into a 35 min ride in the Hyperloop.

 

This new mode of transportation is more efficient than conventional rails, water, air, and roads that the world has grown accustomed to using. More overly it is environmentally friendly with zero emissions, faster, and does not use any oil that we are so heavily dependent on currently.  On top of using electric power, the Hyperloop would also be equipped with solar panels which will distribute solar energy making it a low electric energy consumer.
