This New Wind Turbine Could Power Japan for 50 Years After One Typhoon

The technology marks a big step toward energy independence for Japan, which currently imports 84 percent of its power<p>A typical typhoon produces wind speeds between 98 and 120 m.p.h. and usually leaves behind a trail of destruction. But a Japanese engineer has plans to harness a typhoon’s incredible …

Nuclear fusion: what's taking so long?

It could provide a cheap, safe, clean, abundant and reliable source of energy for mankind, but nuclear fusion has so far remained tantalisingly out …

To be Solar, or not to be? Part 2: What solar panels should I choose?

Electricity is one of the most important things in our lives. That solar panels allows us to collect photons from the skies and drive – literally if it’s an electric vehicle – our modern world is almost magical. In our first article on residential solar, we talked about the structural aspects of a …

New form of light could make fiber optics more secure

When light hits your eyeball, the spinning photons actually twist it (infinitesimally). The force of that spin, known as angular momentum, has always been thought to be a direct multiple of a quantum physics number called Planck's constant. However, scientists from Trinity College Dublin discovered …
