solar water-splitting cells, Thorium fuel

New study illustrates the working of solar water-splitting cells

University of Oregon scientists have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work, with the help of a new method called “dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry.” The most important parameter reported was the ion-permeability of electrocatalysts used in water-splitting devices….

Thorium fuel car runs for 100 years without refueling!

Laser Power Systems, is developing a new method of automotive propulsion with thorium, one of the most dense materials known in nature. Thorium is so dense that it has the potential to produce tremendous amounts of heat. Just one gram of the substance yields more energy than 7,396 gallons (28,000 L) of gasoline and 8 grams would power the typical car for a century….
