"[..] each Haliade-X will produce about 67GWh annually, “enough clean power for up to 16,000 households per turbine, and up to 1 million European households in a 750 MW windfarm configuration.” "

"Ice is solid water. You know that. But what happens when it becomes a solid makes this substance unusual and fascinating."

"That these companies get away with this, that in fact speculators fall for this crap, that they’re stupid enough to bet what are in aggregate many billions of dollars in a matter of seconds after “blockchain” flashes across their screens, is a sign of just how far the global flood of liquidity has befuddled the minds of these speculators and turned them into knee-jerk betting automatons. This phenomenon happens only during the very late stages of a bubble."

"Bitcoin was supposed to disintermediate the finance industry — the system of banks and middlemen and transaction fees in which a single entity can hold your money hostage. Instead, it replicated this system and made it worse. Ordinary users all trust third parties to verify transactions and hold their money. The price is so volatile that no one wants to use Bitcoin for payments. And thanks to the current bubble, the electricity required to maintain the Bitcoin network is skyrocketing. “Bitcoin was supposed to demonstrate the power of a true free market,” the developer Adam Chalmers tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, when the average price of Bitcoin was around $13,000. “Instead it's full of scams, rent-seekers, theft, useless for real purchases and accelerates climate change. Mission accomplished.” "

Instead of being a steam/vapour explosion as commonly believed, the first explosive event at Chernobyl is purported to be a series of nuclear explosions within the reactor.

“We believe that thermal neutron mediated nuclear explosions at the bottom of a number of fuel channels in the reactor caused a jet of debris to shoot upwards through the refueling tubes,” Dr. De Geer said.

“This jet then rammed the tubes’ 350 kg plugs, continued through the roof and traveled into the atmosphere to altitudes of 2.5-3 km where the weather conditions provided a route to Cherepovets.”

Elon Musk has a plan to reinvent trucking.

"The Tesla Semi will ship with Tesla's Enhanced Autopilot mode, allowing for automatic emergency braking, lane keeping, auto steering, and lane-departure warning, which should be especially welcome for long-haul drivers.Tesla would not specify the number of cameras or sensors.

The jack-knife prevention technology sounds particularly interesting and complex. Jack-knifing, often the start of major traffic backups, is when the semi cabin and its trailer shift out of front-to-back alignment, and the rear of the trailer spins left or right and moves in the direction of the front of the truck, making the shape of a half-open jack knife.

According to Tesla, the Tesla Semi's sensors detect the start of any instability and instantly start countering it by applying torque to each wheel and activating all the regenerative brakes independently and as necessary."

"[..] the efficient rock-water interactions in a porous core massaged by tidal friction could generate up to 30 GW of heat over tens of millions to billions of years."
