In the future, will wind power tapped by high-flying kites light up New York? A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution identifies New York as a prime location for exploiting high-altitude winds, which globally contain enough energy to meet world demand 100 times over. The researchers found that the regions best suited for harvesting this energy match with population centers in the eastern U.S. and East Asia, but fluctuating wind strength still presents a challenge for exploiting...

Just entering the microcosm of atom matter where it is able to absorb and emit energy, still having the possibility to obtain energy from the mass of matter which can be found everywhere. Interestingly, E = mc² does not contain any reference to a particular substance, but there is no need, for one gram of air, water or gram per gram of cosmic particles, is also a gram of mass. So our new role is important to release any material amount of energy in mass that surrounds us and which we use...

Stephen Hawking's Warning: Abandon Earth—Or Face Extinction Let's face it: The planet is heating up, Earth's population is expanding at an exponential rate, and the the natural resources vital to our survival are running out faster than we can replace them with sustainable alternatives. So, according to famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, it's time to free ourselves from Mother Earth. "I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space," "It will be...
