They moved from "town gas " to "North Sea Gas", largely because it was cheaper.The gas grid presently holds and distributes 35% of the UK's total energy. Until 1963, 50% of the gas was hydrogen. It has been economically feasible and indeed profitable since 1790.Why did they stop distributing hydrogen?
Doesn't this evidence from the past, buttress the concept that hot water is the essential ingredient in dish-washing?No.
it usually takes really high temperature to intensify the reactions.No, it doesn't.
Even when the oil runs out, there's hydrogen.There are no hydrogen mines.
But how could cars be powered by "geothermal energy"?Use the heat to generate steam, use that to spin a turbine, use that to drive a generator and use the electricity to electrolyse water to make hydrogen or charge batteries.
They had triplicate systems.Chernobyl off button was what killed it, the quick insertion of the control rods blew it up, because they had a moderator at the end. Steam pockets ensued and not a good outcome!Quote from:Chernobyl surely should have had an off buttonAll power reactors have an "off" button, which stops the nuclear chain reaction.
However, the residual heat continues to produce around 6-7% of the reactor's output power, even after the fuel rods are fully inserted. This drops below 1% after a day or so.
If I (being very careful of the language I use, nuclear reactors and explosions I'm sure flag up at gchq) rendered a reactor incapable of being controlled by consoles, could I cut a rope to drop the control rods? If one control rod jammed could I drop the rest? Would the reactor have passive cooling capability? A clever design in pipework(s) to a radiator(s) radiator on the roof(s) would be good. Nuclear reactors seem not to have the aarospace standard of duplicates and triplicate.
"Fission" involves the artificial and unnatural splitting of atoms of heavy elements such as Uranium.Why do you think it is unnatural?
The exercise was executed as planned, so this was not a matter of "pilot error" but must be seen as deliberate sabotage.No.
With conservation of matter, everything we have ever dug up out of the earth still exists somewhere in one form or another.But with the exception of gold- which we dig up in many places, but then bury again at the national banks, we dig up concentrated deposits of minerals, and then distribute them all over the place.
I mean, if the Universe really did originate from a single point, why shouldn't we able to find where that point was?
Now imagine it starting from a very small balloon.Which kind of makes this little planet of ours the very centre of the observable universe doesn't it?Yes, but everywhere is the centre of the universe.
Imagine drawing dots on a balloon, and then inflating it.
All the dots move away from each other so all of them "see" themselves as the centre.
