Fusion Energy: A Leap Forward in Superconductivity

By Dick Weisinger

The quest for practical fusion energy, a clean and virtually limitless power source, has been a scientific dream for decades. Recent advances, particularly in high-temperature superconductivity, have brought us closer to making this dream a reality. At the forefront of

Fusion Energy: A Glimpse into the Future

By Dick Weisinger

The quest for fusion energy, the Holy Grail of clean power, has seen remarkable progress recently. MIT and Commonwealth Fusion Systems have designed a superconducting magnet that broke magnetic field strength records, paving the way for practical, commercial, carbon-free power. This advance

Water Batteries: A Solution to the Lithium-Ion Problem?

By Dick Weisinger

Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere. They power our phones, laptops, electric vehicles, and even some grid-scale energy storage systems. They are popular because they can store a lot of energy in a small space and have a long lifespan. However, they

Space-Based Solar Power: Unlocking a Wireless Energy Revolution

By Dick Weisinger

In our wireless age, engineers are on the brink of a groundbreaking achievement: generating solar power in space and beaming it wirelessly to Earth. This idea, long dismissed as too complex and costly, is now being put to the test.

Can the US Regain Solar Energy Leadership Through Technological Advancements?

By Dick Weisinger

Solar energy has become a battleground for the United States as it seeks to regain ground lost to China in the field of photovoltaic materials and solar panels. Recent debates over tariffs on Asian-manufactured solar panels have highlighted the need
