Sample text

A new genre of energy analysis, “well to wheels,” compares the energy efficiency of every known method to turn a vehicle’s wheels [see illustration above]. ” At every step of the energy chain, from pumping oil out of the ground to refining it to burning it in an engine, some of the original energy potential of the fuel is lost. The first part of the well-to-wheels determination is what engineers call “well to tank”: what it takes to make and deliver a fuel. When natural gas is cracked for hydrogen, about 40 percent of the original energy potential is lost in the transfer, according to the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

So is the safe handling of the gas. Any practical proposal for a hydrogen economy will have to address all these issues. Which Sources Make Sense? have two obvious attractions. First, they produce no pollution at point of use [see “Vehicle of Change,” by Lawrence D. Burns, J. Byron McCormick and Christopher E. Borroni-Bird; Scientific American, October 2002]. Second, hydrogen can come from myriad sources. In fact, the gas is not a fuel in the conventional sense. A fuel is something found in nature, like coal, or refined from a natural product, like diesel fuel from oil, and then burned to do work.

They cannot collapse to an infinitesimal point, so they avoid the paradoxes that collapse entails. Their nonzero size and novel symmetries set upper bounds to physical quantities that increase without limit in conventional theories, and they set lower bounds to quantities that decrease. String theorists expect that when one plays the history of the universe backward in time, the curvature of spacetime starts to increase. But instead of going all the way to infinity (at the traditional big bang singularity), it eventually hits a maximum and shrinks once more.
