thermoelectricity

Mária Telkes (1900-1995) was a Hungarian scientist and inventor, best known for her pioneering work in thermodynamics and solar energy. She moved to the United States after completing a PhD in physical chemistry in her home country, and researched solar energy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In 1947 she invented the first thermoelectric power generator, designing the first solar heating system. A few years later, in 1953, she created the first thermoelectric refrigerator. Throughout her career she designed various other thermal devices for the production and storage of solar power.

You can cook on wood while, at the same time, generate electricity to charge your gadgets!  Typically used outdoors, the stove works in the following way: the heat from the fire generates electricity via a thermoelectric generator to power a fan creating airflow for improved combustion.

If you’re wondering why Garnet can generate electricity, its because natural Garnet is thermoelectric, meaning it creates a charge when it experiences a change in temperature. Given Sapphire’s ice powers and Ruby’s heat abilities, we can assume Garnet is using those properties in tandem to generate huge amounts of electricity.

Thermoelectricity and fly generation science amalgamate finish Thermo Fisher Scientific establish

Thermoelectricity fly to science hold both sides amalgamate the news briefing finished in Beijing generation.

According to amalgamate relevant clause in the agreement, fly shareholder of generation until per share the intersection of common share and stock that hold gain 2 the intersection of thermoelectricity and common share stock in the hand; Thermoelectric shareholder have new company about 39% share, 61% remaining shareholder hold generation for fly.

In May of this year, the power & light company reached and amalgamated the agreement with Fisher Scientific Worldwide, new company fly to with thermoelectricity scientific Company name generation. According to the introduction of market and commercial strategy executive vice president Ruby Chandy of power & light company, thermoelectricity and fly generation complementary technical field win more plump product line after amalgamation, can offer the integral technological solution carrying the end, will remedy the deficiency in consumptive material and reagent in the past of thermoelectricity at the same time. The technological innovation, the whole world expand and strategic merger is that the thermoelectricity realize the three main and effective methods that progresses and constantly strong enormously.

November 9, power & light company and fly generation the scientific company announce the pooling of both sides is finished, the new company Thermo Fisher Scientific is established. Thermoelectricity and fly generation basis give a written reply from the antitrust clause of EU Committee while being earlier the same day, the transaction mode to change the stock through the duty-free and stock realizes this amalgamation. New company is headquartered in Waltham of Massachusetts continent. After amalgamating, the annual sales amount of the company will reach about 9 billion dollars and have about 30000 employees in the whole world. Thermo Fisher Scientific exchange code in New York Stock Exchange is “ TMO ” .

Thermo Fisher Scientific would participate in the analysis day activity that held in New York on December 14, 2006, the company plans information and 2007 offered detailedly when the time comes.

On Tuesday, July 14, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will fly past Pluto, providing our best views yet of that much-discussed little orb so loved by many youngsters. 

The New Horizons spacecraft, launched in January 2006 from Cape Canaveral atop an Atlas V rocket, was designed for NASA by the Southwest Research Institute and Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory. Moving away from Earth at a record initial speed over 36,000 miles per hour, it crossed the orbit of Mars that April, then exercised some of its instruments while receiving a gravity-assisted speed boost from Jupiter during a February 2007 fly-by. Saturn’s orbit was crossed the next year. The orbit of Uranus was passed in 2011 and Neptune’s was left behind last August. New Horizons’ circuits are powered by a radioisotope thermoelectric generator containing plutonium-238 oxide pellets, an essential source out by Pluto, where sunlight is 1,630 times weaker than it is at Earth. A 6’ 7"-diameter dish antenna serves for primary communications with home.

At the heart of the New Horizons mission are instruments to study Pluto’s geology, surface composition, pressure, and temperature of its thin atmosphere, as well as aspects of the interplanetary medium. These devices include: The Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI), a long focal length Ritchey–Chretien telescope system with an 8.2-inch aperture designed for high resolution at visible wavelengths. A Plasma and high-energy particle spectrometer suite (PAM) aboard New Horizons comprises a Solar Wind At Pluto (SWAP) electrostatic measuring instrument and Pluto Energetic Particle Spectrometer Science Instrument (PEPSSI). They are used to study solar wind components reaching Pluto.

New Horizons ’ Pluto Exploration Remote Sensing Investigation (PERSI) has two main components: Alice, an ultraviolet imaging spectrometer and Ralph, a 2.4-inch aperture telescope with visual and infrared imaging capability. They will observe Pluto’s thin atmosphere, and may have New York connections. The instruments are said to have been named after Alice and Ralph Kramden, the city bus driver and his wife of Honeymooners fame. Read more on the Sky Reporter blog. 

On Tuesday morning, join the Museum for a Google Hangout, July 14, 7-9 am EDT, for the New Horizons Pluto Flyby. Hosted by Museum Curator Denton Ebel, Astrovisualization Director Carter Emmart, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, the program will link to New Horizons mission control at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory and to science museums and planetariums around the world to view and discuss the latest flyby visualizations.  Learn more about the event.
