NASA Maps Reveal Wind Energy Sources - 0 views

  • Efforts to harness the energy potential of Earth's ocean winds could soon gain an important new tool, global satellite maps from NASA. Scientists have been creating maps using nearly a decade of data from NASA's QuikSCAT satellite that reveal ocean areas where the wind resources exist to produce wind energy.

Hans De Keulenaer » Air Travel Switches To Electricity - 0 views

    Charles Bremner, Times, UK offers up some great news for air travelers. The dream of inexpensive, ecofriendly aviation has come closer to reality after a French test pilot achieved the first flight in a conventional light aircraft powered by an electric motor. The Electra, a wood-and-fabric single-seater, flew for 48 minutes for 50km (30 miles) around the southern Alps, winning a global race to apply battery power to a fixed-wing standard aircraft….Electric power for larger aircraft, including airliners, is also on the horizon, with research by Nasa and Boeing into the holy grail of the field: hydrogen-fed fuel cells. These will drive electric motors with power like those on French high-speed trains.

Insolation at Specified Location - 0 views

    "This web page produces a numerical table of sunrise, sunset, daily insolation at top of atmosphere, and sunlight-weighted cosine of the zenith angle at a single specified location. The produced table contains data for a single month, or if a month is not provided, data for a single calendar year. Latitude and longitude must be given in degrees and hundredths of degrees, not degrees and minutes. Default location is the Central Park weather station, New York City. "
