Is an artificial gasoline impossible?

Is an artificial gasoline impossible?
Too many combustion motors and their design and engineering efforts could be wasted if there's no substitute for giving them power. The problem of the current energy in those chemical bonds appears in the well-known problem of pollution. However, it could be different if someone develops a method to create…

The mysteries about lactic acid

The mysteries about lactic acid
The legend of this chemical element states that anyone should produce it after a certain exercise intensity. Its name suggest a relationship with milk, from the Latin word "lactis", and in fact it plays an important role in fermentation. Different bacteria produce lactic acid like lactobacillus y streptococcus. Also found…

Solar panel's backup batteries at home

Solar panel's backup batteries at home
Sun has a peak of energy during the day that usually cannot be paralleled with the time in which the home uses more electricity. The necessity of a storage system for later use is a very complex field that is going to experience multiple advances in the next decades. Some…

An oscilloscope that goes to 100 GHz/s

An oscilloscope that goes to 100 GHz/s
Not so much time ago speeds of 1 MHz would be considered luxury and only a few people had such instrument in their hands. The market, for a relatively low price exposes now 100 MHz or a bit more so this doesn't look as a main limitation for whom enjoy…

Trying to conceive the distance to Proxima Centauri

Trying to conceive the distance to Proxima Centauri
The name Proxima perhaps is another case of an optimism because the star doesn't exist in a near field at all. In spanish "próximo" (from Latin proximus) means "nearby", so this creates the impression of being near, or at least relatively. A calculator of those that can handle multiple digits…

Organic matter or not?

Organic matter or not?
As the carbon atom appears due to its versatility in every known life forms, there's a potential conjecture that presents this periodic element as organic matter. Or say compounds having this atom. Is it rational? If you see a diamond, an allotrope of carbon, or with other words pure carbon…

Time limited pieces on circuits

Time limited pieces on circuits
The development of technology seems better if it lasts thousand years working like the first day, using techniques to overcome age, understanding its causes. Even if the product is cheap, with better engineering methods, it would be more durable. PCBs include multiple parts and almost each one has a failure…

Supercapacitor options

Supercapacitor options
There are at least one research group promising fast recharging times with Li-ion batteries but the supercapacitor industry continues evolving in energy density. Names like graphene appeared some time ago and each day the commercialization seems a bit closer. To check the availability and development of the supercapacitor brands, anyone…

Wireless or love for the wires?

Wireless or love for the wires?
Considerable amounts of information stating possible health risks in exposures to microwave radiation suggest precaution and that doesn't mean using it like another technology. For sure it's a great business and convenient for users, but sometimes to use other options seems more adequate. Cordless obviously provides benefits. However, are they…

Is it really refined?

Is it really refined?
The subjective sensation about taste has relationship with the education at early ages, with places where the menu is completely different from others. Then, it's a dubious factor like all psychological processes in a civilization with billions of characters and a unique genome each. Although forgetting this aspect, you could…
