In a previous project I found a free tv and turned it into a giant solar scorcher. This shoots out a deadly beam of sunlight, that's hot enough to abuse food, melt metal and burn things you probably shouldn't. Today seemed like a good day to play with my Solar Scorcher. I positioned my frame and found the focal point, then added some concrete tiles as a base for my projects. Ok, I've got power, and I'll test it out with this piece of wood and when the light makes contact.
I've got instant fire. The sunlight at this spot is around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to melt this spot of concrete into a glowing orange liquid. I'm curious to see what I can do with all this heat so I've filled a glass bottle with water and I'll punch a hole in the cap. It's incredible to see that the instant I focus my lens on the bottle, it starts smoking. Just a few moments later this water is so hot it's boiling, and I'm a little nervous the bottle might blow. Yep, there it goes. The glass pieces are melting and that's cool,.
But now I want to try this on some food. I'll get some hot dogs, and when they hit the beam they really do get hot. This might be a little well done for my taste, and I'm still hungry so let's try an egg. The egg is actually working very well. It's so reflective it doesn't burn as fast, and even my wife is interested. A little salt and pepper and it's tempting to try a bite. Ok, so I wasn't actually expecting to eat this, but it looks safe enough, and.
Even my kids are anxious to try. Surprisingly, it's pretty good. Alright, let's see what else this will do. I'll try burning a penny, and, wow, it melted. How about a stack of pennies Yep, they're nothing but liquid metal now, and I'm thinking that slag in the mixture must be what's left of the copper coating. It's only taking about 4 seconds to melt these, and melting metal is really great, but now I want to see something burst. I wonder what would happen to this egg It's spewing some kind of debris and smoking like crazy. I hear.
Some little pops and it's even forming some interesting growths. huh, Look at that. But no explosion. How about if I put a pop top on this bottle of water and let the pressure build up Yeah, that's what I'm looking for. Let's do that again. The lid is back on, and pressure is building. Awesome! Alright, the sun is setting and I've readjusted my Aframe. I'm just wondering if this would ignite gasoline. It does. Hopefully it goes without saying that this is very dangerous and you shouldn't try this at home. Well, I'm convinced there's.
An insane amount of power behind these lenses. If you'd like to see where I got this one, take a look at my tutorial on how I hacked it out of an old TV. This one boiled water in less than a minute, welded a nickel to concrete, and instantly torched any piece of wood in it's way. Well that was fun, but I'm still hungry so I'll put everything away and go get some real home cooking. That's it for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others.

Why Should We Launch Solar Panels Into Space
This episode of DNews is brought to you by Full Sail University. This week the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency announced it wants to get solar power from space. I'm having flashbacks to disasters from SimCity2000. Hello! I'm Trace. Thank you for watching DNews. Back in the 1960s, American aerospace engineer Peter Glaser proposed launching solar panels into space, and beaming the power they collect back to the surface for our use. Since the late 60s the idea has been in a holding pattern mainly because of the expense and worries about maintenance and equipment, but thanks.
To recent developments in solar panel tech the Japanese space firm JAXA says they can finally try it. The plan is ambitious at minimum and cost hasn't yet been calculated, BUT JAXA is determined, and they're not the only ones. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is also interested in spacebased solar. The reason everyone's looking up, is because that's where the sun sits! If we can put a satellite in orbit to collect the sun's rays BEFORE the atmosphere filters them out, and without the worry of a cloudy day, that would be rad. The JAXA Space Based Power System.
Or SBPS will orbit 22,400 miles up, and if done to their specs, would completely replace a nuclear power plant by producing 1 gigawatt of electricity enough to power halfamillion homes. Their plan uses a 10,000 metric ton system, which is. well pretty ridiculous. The largest rocket ever launched was the Saturn V it took our boys to the moon and could only lift about 130 metric tons. Once the power is gathered, a converter in space will convert the electricity into a microwave beam not like in your house, literally waves of energy that are.
On the micro scale. Microwaves can be converted from energy at 80 percent efficiency, which means there would be some loss, but it would be pretty damn efficient about 48 of the power collected would reach consumers. Which doesn't sound great, but it really is. To make sure the array is getting sunlight 24hours a day, JAXA plans to put mirrors on either side of the planet to reflect sunlight at the collector all the time. The Japanese are announcing their plan so far in advance in the hope other countries.
Will gather and help realize the dream of solar from space. Once created, it could provide clean, unlimited energy anywhere on the planet, regardless of remote location. Here's the kicker. It would cost about a trillion dollars. Which sounds like a lot, but it's like 125 bucks per person on the planet in 2030. And that's WAY more than you're paying doe your power bill. Not to mention oil wars and all the pollution, ecological damage, mining and drilling that goes with fossil fuels. We've got commenting areaaassss, check them out and type your feelings on spacebased.
Solar so we can all talk about it! None of this would be possible without computers to run the system, and we need people to write the computer programs. Full Sail University in Florida offers courses to help train tech professionals by blending code and realworld experience. Students of Full Sail have handson access to technology on their first day, get a discounted laptop and all the software they'll need to earn degrees in software, mobile and web development.

What Type of Electrical Panels Are Good For Solar
What types of electrical panels are good candidates for solar And what are bad candidates for solar Is a question I asked John Shaw project engineer for Bella Energy. Long story short there are panels out there through grand father clause, if any contractor came in and did any type of electrical work, that electrical work could not pass because of the fact that there is a panel there for a particular brand because of law suits and stuff like that, but that is a bit too nit picky. The things I look for when doing a site visit are.
100 amp main service limit the size of the back feed breaker that we use to feed the house there are other ways to integrate a system into the house with line side taps which can be done in a couple of different locations. We are looking for 150 plus amp service with empty breaker spaces at least two that is going to be the best scenario. We can certainly get around anything and everything we run into but it is a question of how much addition time and weather or not we are service upgrade or we might need to ask Xcel for a.
Service upgrade or stuff like that. The easiest way to integrate a system into your home which is what is called a backfeed service breaker onto your service panel some people call a breaker box. If there are a couple of empty spaces we take a special breaker instead of drawing power and sending it to your living room actually takes power from the PV system and puts it on to the bus bar which then is just another source of electrons on those bus bars for all of the other breakers to pull from.
But we are limited in the size of the breaker we can put in there, by the overall service. So for example lets say you have 100 amp service, the biggest breaker we can use to back feed the system is 20 amp breaker That would mean that you could only do about a 2.5 to 3 kilo watt system. If I am not mistaken. 3 sounds about right I would have to do the math to figure it out, I don't have it in my head there are some other.
Ways to get around it too. What the code actually says is that if it is a 100 service that usually means you have a 100 amp bus bar in your service panel and 100 amp main disconnect that means you can only feed the bus bar with 120 of its rating, so it is feed by the main breaker usually 100 percent of its main rating you can have 20 but if the main breaker happens to be an 80 amp breaker on a 100 amp bus bar that is another 40 amps you could add or.
Peak Oil News 21913 Fiat Electric Car, Solar Power, Tesla S Production
His is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything inbetween. The Fiat 500 electric car will go on sale in California this year. The electric range is rated at a respectable 87 miles. Electric cars are slowly having longer electric ranges over their competitors. It's 87 mile electric range surpasses the range of the Nissan Leaf, the Ford Focus, the Honda Fit, the SmartForTwo and the Mitsubishi IMev. Tesla Model S production has finally been ramped up to 400 cars per week or about 20,000.
Per year. There is still debate, however, as to whether Tesla can survive. That task may have become a lot easier with the Fisker Karma halting production several months back. The Karma was Tesla's greatest luxury electric vehicle competitor. Tesla's ultimate goal is to mass produce cheaper electric cars. Tesla wants to utilize the vast unused space at it's hightech factory in California. One man tries to combat the hazardous air pollution in China. He built a breathing bike to filter the air through a fighter jet type mask. The bike powers the pumps to move.
The air through. Beijing air is equal to smoking about a pack of cigarettes a day. Not to be outdone, they are selling cans of fresh air on the streets for $7 a piece. If you think the air is bad now, wait until China and India build the proposed 500 new coal plants in the coming years. And trust me, they won't be clean coal plants. There is a solar power plant in Spain that runs 24 hours per day. Hundreds of mirrors direct the sun's rays towards a central tower. The tower than heats molten salt. This is.
