Have you ever even consided that it might be possible to drive from one side of the country to the other entirely on free energy?:banana :
would we be hooked up to the very wheelworks of the universe by now if JP Morgan supported Tesla?

We have the technology to do that now with solar powered charging cells. All you have to do is be patient. You could drive from New York to LA on nothing but solar power. It would just take you a few years to get there.

If you meant going nonstop from New York to LA on "self-charging" energy (at anything faster than a slow crawl), then no one alive will see it in their lifetime and big oil hasn't got anything to do with it. The laws of physics have everything to do with it.

Since the East side of the country is lower than the West side, I think it's very doable now!

World solar car race begins in Australia
October 25, 2009

A driver for team 'Sattem' gives a thumbs-up from the cockpit of a solar powered car at the start of the World Solar Challenge in Darwin, on October 25. Thirty-two solar powered cars from 17 participating countries will race over 3,000 km across the Australian outback to Adelaide.
A 3,000-kilometre (1,860-mile) solar car race across Australia's desert heartland began in the northern city of Darwin Sunday, organisers said.

DIY solar kits - Simple, affordable, effective solar hot water systems -
The cars left Darwin in hot and humid weather at about 8:30 am (2300 GMT Saturday) on the journey that is expected to end mid-week in the South Australian city of Adelaide.
"We had 32 vehicles start this morning," Mike Drewer, a spokesman for the World Solar Challenge, told AFP, adding that weather conditions were good for solar cars.
"The first away was Aurora 101 from Australia, having set the fastest speed time trial (of 91.83 kilometres per hour) yesterday."
It was followed by the Dutch car Nuna5, which posted a time of 85.49 kilometres per hour.
The Nuna team has won the last four solar challenge races in 2007, 2005, 2003 and 2001 but had to rebuild its new car before the start of this race after a testing accident in Darwin.
The third car to start was Germany's HS Bochum BoCruiser, which trialled at 82.52 kilometres per hour.
The solar cars race for nine hours each day, stopping at a certain cut-off time each night and camping by the side of the road, wherever they are at that moment.
"We would expect the fastest vehicles are capable of doing, depending on weather conditions, about 800 kilometres per day," Drewer said. "The fastest ones could be approaching Adelaide by Wednesday night, Thursday."
Event director Chris Selwood said picking a winner would be difficult.
"We won't really see the technology and ingenuity until the cars are scrutineered in Darwin and a lot of things can happen on the journey south," Selwood said ahead of the race.
The race is being run in tandem with the Eco Challenge, which involves production and prototype eco-friendly vehicles that are, or soon will be, available to the public.grin cheers

Probably not much quicker. 1800 miles across a scorching flat desert isn't trying to drive across a couple mountain ranges with weather that's going to limit the sun exposure. Even with the most aerodyamic models that are little more than modified ten speed bicycles that have a harness for a driver that would make a sardine feel cramped.... even with that, the vertical climb would require huge amounts of energy that coasting along flat terrain doesn't.

The technology isn't going to make all solar powered vehicles practical because the sun simply doesn't generate enough power to get it done without long recharging times and very efficient electrical storage.

Physics. You can't cheat it's rules.

Vril Gammagische Auge
(1945)

By Rob Arndt


The Vril Gammagische Auge (Magic Eye) is a claimed Nazi espionage and reconnaissance device which was in the development stage in early 1945.


Vril Gesellschaft Ing. Rolf Engel developed a miniature Vril Triebwerk (Thrustwork) EMG (Electro-Magnetic-Gravitic) engine and put it into a melon-shaped lightly armored body with a diameter of 40cm (1 foot 4 inches). The body had a reception antenna, a central small television camera, a Schusswaffe (Shot weapon), and a telescopic arm that held another miniature camera and a sound microphone.



By virtue of its design and connection to Vril, the magic eye would have the ability to emerge and submerge dimensionally - appearing and disappearing at will. As such, this device was suitable for a wide range of military duties that included aerial recon, submarine protection, and especially espionage (foreign and domestic). The advantage here was invisibility. While the main body of the probe remained in the invisible part of inter-dimensional space, the telescopic sensor arm could lower its other camera and microphone into our dimension for spying.


The craft was so small that no factories were required to build it. It was a cottage industry device, able to be assembled in a home, garage, apartment, barn, shed, etc… thus, no fear of Allied recovery of major documentation on the device. Ease of assembly and disassembly would make it an ideal device.


By early 1945, Rolf Engel had performed lab tests with the power plant for this device and work was well underway on miniaturizing television equipment down from the bulky 1936 Nazi Olympics cameras to cameras that were just a few times larger than the postwar lipstick cameras of the 1960s. Work on advanced television guidance for missiles had been perfected for the Hs-293D missile and for Mistel composite aircraft being developed by DFS. The very small Argus As-292 target drone had by this time also been converted over to an RPV (Remotely Piloted Vehicle) equipped with small Zeiss optical and infra-red cameras in its small cylindrical body. These went unnoticed by the Allies and none were shot down.


There is no evidence that a fully functional prototype was ever manufactured, but the basic flight characteristics of the small machine were probably tested. The inter-dimensional aspects of the flying drone are questionable but are consistent with Vril Gesellschaft claims of channeled flight with the Jenseitsflugmaschine (Other World Flight Machine of 1922-24) and the Vril/SS E-IV built Flugscheiben (Flight Discs).

the latest progress
Brooks Agnew has a Truck with a few of the basic means of self charging its a step in the right direction 3 or 4 different types of recharge extending range...if we can tap into 12 or 20 we might drive awhile plug the car into the house and run our house from the extra energy .....

tesla was a pioneer in ambient energy
Ishmael Aviso has invented a small devise tapping this
keeping a battery at full charge even after driving a small car around. he posted some you tubes of his early experiments.

Maybe solar, Maybe not...But Mexico just flew the first Bio-fuel flight here a couple of days ago...But I do feel Solar needs more develompment and I truly hope it is. wine

Production of Solarcells isn't exactly what you'd call Green,using some pretty Toxic Ingredients.

I'd say hydrogen cell will be the way to go once they find a cheap way to go about it. What I'm not sure about is how they will store the electrical energy. Batteries seem to cause as many ecological problems as they cure. dunno

The Gulph of California gets narrow up near Hermosillio and then widens. It's the perfect place for a dam.

Here's what you do -

Build dam, locks for shiping, turbines for electric generation.

Let the sun evaporate the "lake" north of the dam.

Open the inlets to the turbines.

Flip the switch.

Simple.

If you let the sea level drop enough before starting the turbines, you might get to reclaim some land too. Just make sure you don't let water flow in faster than the sun can evaporate it.

Well, the flight Im refering too uses a bio-fuel called Jatropha...Its completely clean with no toxins produced and its derived from a locally grown plant here...Its clean, renewable,and sustainable Really encouraging yay
