Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Today's Science Fiction ?

Time and again , history has proved that :

Today's science fiction becomes tomorrow's science fact

To illustrate :

NASA is planning HERTS ( Heliopause Electrostatic Rapid Transit System )

 Some 10 to 20 electro-statically charged aluminum wires ( 1 mm thick and 12.5 miles long ) , will radiate out from a satellite

These will repel the protons / electrons shooting out of Sun at high speeds

The resultant " reaction " will propel the satellite continuously / relentlessly

This " acceleration " will enable the satellite to exit solar system in 10 years instead of in 35 years

I have no doubt that one of these days , NASA ( or ISRO ? ) , will find a way to  implement GEFEM ( Generating Electricity From Earth Magnetism ) , suggested in my following blog ( dated 24 March, 2014 ) :

Salvaging Life On Earth

The biggest cause for the degradation of environment is burning of fossil fuels

Burning of coal / gas / oil etc produces green-house gases , leading to global warming / floods / droughts etc

Everyone knows that the real long term solution is switching over to renewable energy sources such as wind / sun / tides etc

Can we tap earth's magnetism to produce abundant / unlimited / clean energy ?

I believe so and would request the scientists to consider my following suggestion :

Every school child knows that ,

*   Electricity is generated when a copper wire is
     rotated in any magnetic field

*   Earth is surrounded by a very strong magnetic

*   This magnetic field is generated by the rotation
     of molten iron deep inside earth's core

*   This magnetic field also protects us from harmful
     ultra-violet rays / gamma radiations from space

Now , suppose we find a way to ,

*   Construct a hollow cylinder of woven Copper wires
     to envelope the earth , 100 miles above the
     earth's surface ( like those thin rings of Saturn )

*   Then , using small rocket thrusts , rotate this
     cylinder in the direction opposite of earth's
     rotation , to cut through its magnetic field

Will that generate electricity  ?

I think so

With international co-operation such a project would take less time - and possibly money too - than the already successful international projects of the International Space Station or the Large Hadron Collider of CERN

It may be exciting to discover the God Particle and understand what makes up mass but I think , it is far more useful to find a permanent / clean source of energy to prevent the extinction of all life on earth by burning fossil fuels
