I look foward to the day when battery technology will have moved on to the
point where a small portable unit, let us say the size of a typical car
battery, will provide all the power needed to provide all the heat needed
including heating the clothing of those wanting to reach the South Pole and
return in Winter. I guess I just want to be an Emperor Penguin. I've always
admired these great creatures.
That's a trip I would enjoy but it won't happen for a long time. I'm
guessing that what is basically a source of chemical energy would always be
too bulky and it would appear that the heart of the battery would be a
nuclear powered device. It just occurred to me that this could probably be
done today. I wonder how big the power plants are on satellites which are
powered by small nuclear reactors to the best of my knowledge.
If only we could only tickle matter to release the energy it contains other
than by fission.
Anyone want to come with me?
