    Tiny heat engine with no moving parts reaches incredible energy milestone

    (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists hope that solid-state thermophotovoltaic cells (SPVs) with no moving parts can achieve higher efficiency at higher temperatures when it comes to converting heat into electricity – and pave the way for electricity grids based entirely on renewable energy. One such TPV cell has set a new world record for efficiency of 40 percent, the researchers report. This is better than steam turbines traditionally used for heat-to-electricity…

    EmDrive engine a device that violates the laws of physics, or a simple fake

    (ORDO NEWS) — According to the inventor, this electromagnetic motor refutes the principles of physics known to us. EmDrive prophesied the title of the starting point of the era of great space discoveries and the colonization of the solar system, which astronomers around the world have dreamed of for so long. Alas, the reality is much more prosaic. The unique installation is capable, for example, of moving a spacecraft in…

    New laser engine will take people to Mars in 45 days

    (ORDO NEWS) — Researchers have developed the concept of a spacecraft that moves using the energy of a laser located on Earth. It can be incredibly effective. Such a laser engine will make it possible to deliver a payload weighing up to a ton to Mars orbit in just 45 days. True, scientists have not yet figured out how to slow down the device. In 2018, NASA challenged engineers to…
