re: Thermo electric generation

Well, we certainly have a heat source to power a thermo-electric generator in the engines considered on this forum. The acoustic properties might be useful in electrical generation, also. The property of Silicates shedding electrons under pressure (Triboluminescence) could be used for greater effici...

re: Rotor-tip jet rides again

Hello- The idea to convert a C-130 with a rotor in order to combat fires looks like a winner to me, Bruno. I hesitate to accept their claim of hover capability, however.
