Sun in a Bottle: The Strange History of Fusion and the Science of Wishful Thinking

The writer of 0 seems to be on the messy heritage of the fight to harness fusion power .

whilst guns developers detonated the 1st hydrogen bomb in 1952, they tapped into the vastest resource of strength in our sunlight system--the exact same phenomenon that makes the solar shine. Nuclear fusion was once a nearly limitless resource of energy that grew to become the heart of a sad and comedian quest that has left ratings of scientists battered and disgraced. For the prior half-century, governments and study groups have attempted to bottle the solar with lasers, magnets, sound waves, particle beams, and chunks of meta. (The most recent enterprise, a massive, multi-billion-dollar, overseas fusion undertaking known as ITER, is simply now getting underway. ) many times, they've got failed, disgracing generations of scientists. all through this attention-grabbing trip Charles Seife introduces us to the bold geniuses, villains, and sufferers of fusion technology: the intense and tortured Andrei Sakharov; the monomaniacal and Strangelovean Edward Teller; Ronald Richter, the secretive physicist whose lies embarrassed a whole nation; and Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann, the 2 chemists at the back of the best medical fiasco of the earlier hundred years. sunlight in a Bottle is the 1st significant publication to track the tale of fusion from its beginnings into the twenty first century, of the way scientists have got burned via attempting to harness the facility of the solar.

Large-Scale Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics I

The complicated flows within the surroundings and oceans are believed to be correctly modelled via the Navier-Stokes equations of fluid mechanics including classical thermodynamics. besides the fact that, as a result huge, immense complexity of those equations, meteorologists and oceanographers have built approximate versions of the dominant, large-scale flows that keep watch over the evolution of climate platforms.

B. ) and W. B. S. ) ABSTRACT Recent concern over commuter exposure to high levels of roadway-related air pollutants, the projected increase in the number of diesel-powered passenger vehicles, and the demonstrated inadequacy of fixed monitoring stations in replicating commuter exposure have prompted research in this area. This paper presents the development of new methodological tools for identifying, predicting, and analyzing commuter exposure to motor vehicle generated air pollutants. Commuter exposure modeling is of interest to those involved in regulation, monitoring, planning, and health effects research.
