Following Monday’s post on a potential new energy source, NASA released a short, hastily-produced video to give laymen an idea of what we might expect from the new technology. It seems last week saw an increase in queries to various agencies concerning LENR (low energy nuclear reaction), which prompted NASA to release the clip on Thursday.
Dr. Zawodny confirms that in time we should be able to use safe nuclear reactors in our homes for heat and power generation. I’ve embedded the YouTube version (NASA hosts the video here):
Having recently joked to my son that “daddy will get a nuclear-powered car” I now find myself in the position of being able to tell him that he may well be riding a nuclear-powered bicycle in the not-too-distant future.
Actually, if Zawodny is correct, this will be as revolutionary to power generation as the internet has been to media. It’s a good analogy, but the economic implications could be even more profound, as energy is an even more important factor than the free flow of information.
It’s good to know that the men at NASA and SPAWAR are on the ball here and keeping us up to date on this enormously important research.
