Fuel cells

In modern technology, fuel cells are successfully used as sources of electric current. In them, at a fairly low temperature, the chemical form of energy is converted into electrical energy, and the current arises from the chemical interaction of flammable substances - hydrogen, gasoline, diesel fuel, coal, ammonia, metals with different...

Accelerators of molecules

In physics, accelerators have long been used. To have a reaction between the particles, they must be stocked with energy. To do this, the physicist accelerates them in the electromagnetic field of the accelerator. Thus, the molecules could not be accelerated, since they are electrically neutral and the electromagnetic field does not act on them...

Space technology

The thought of K.E. Tsiolkovsky about the settlement of people around the sun, when it seemed too fantastic. But the man left his cradle - the Earth long ago and took the first step to create a cosmic civilization, which, above all, needs materials. In space, metals, acids, alkalis, oxidants will be needed. They will have to be cooked differently than on Earth, but by special technology. Therefore, the problem of space exploration forces us to develop new areas of science and technology - space technologies...
