  • Hotter than the Sun? World's Largest Artificial Sun Switched On

    This array of 149 Xenon short-arc lamps is called Synlight, and it's designed to be an artificial sun. Invented by the German Aerospace Centre, or DLR, Synlight can produce up to 10,000 times the intensity of natural sunlight experienced on Earth. Researchers and scientists turned on their machine for Ruptly in Juelich on Monday. The Synlight array measures 45 by 52 feet but all the powerful bulbs are designed to concentrate their light radiation on a small space which measures just 8 inches by 8 inches. Its inventors claim that the synthetic sun can generated temperatures up to 3000 degrees Celsius and beyond. Synlight was created with a specific purpose in mind. Hydrogen fuel, considered by many to be the fuel of the future because it emits no carbon when burned, is derived by breaking water down into its base atoms. However, this process requires a huge amount of heat energy. Synlight is meant to power the reaction to obtain hyrdogen fuel in a way that uses as little fossil fuels as possible. The high power array also has potential uses in other fields as well, including scientific research and commercial applications which require an intense source of heat. The project cost about 3.5 million euro to buid, funding which was provided by the German government and automaker BMW.

  • This is the Nikola One - A Hydrogen-Powered Semi with Zero Emissions

    Nikola Motors unveiled its zero-emission hydrogen-powered electric semi-truck called the Nikola One, which aims to compete against the largest truck manufacturers in the world and fight climate change at the same time. Unveiled at the company's headquarters in Salt Lake City, the class 8 semi-truck will be powered by both lithium batteries and hydrogen fuel cells which generate over 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 ft-lbs of torque and enable the truck to travel up to 1,200 miles on a single charge. Leasing the Nikola One will cost customers between $5,000 and $7,000 per month for a 72 month term and includes unlimited hydrogen fuel at their network of stations. Nikola Motors have already received pre-orders worth $3 billion and plans to build a network of fuel stations across the US and Canada starting in January 2018.
