Geologists in Iceland are drilling directly into the heart of a hot volcano. Their $20m project will lead to boreholes that could ultimately yield 10 times as much geothermal power as any previous project.

A motion-sensitive protein found in the human ear might one day coat spacesuits or even future bases on Mars, producing electricity through movement or exposure to the Martian wind. ... Prestin may be 10,000 times more efficient at generating power than the best manmade material. ... Because the power skins are made from biological components, Silver says it might be possible one day for them to grow and heal themselves in space. First, we...

According to Steorn's website, "Steorn's technology produces free, clean and constant energy. This provides a significant range of benefits, from the convenience of never having to refuel your car or recharge your mobile phone, to a genuine solution to the need for zero emission energy production." Steorn's CEO Sean McCarthy stated in an RTE radio interview that, "What we have developed is a way to construct...

Iter is expected to be the final step that experimenters need to take before commercial fusion power is realised.

Nuclear fusion - a new form of nuclear power which combines atoms rather than splitting them apart - could be ready by around 2040, but that is too long to wait. The British government estimates that 56% of energy used in UK homes could be cut using currently available technologies - yet the original Model T Ford did more miles to the gallon than the average Ford vehicle produced today in the US.

"Finally: the probability of head-on collisions is extremely low - perhaps 1 in a thousand million or less. This means that most 2H nuclei will cross the target, slowly losing energy via inelastic collisions with the electron clouds. The vast majority will never experience a head-on collision at energies above 0.3 MeV (no matter what energy they havce initially!!!). So only the extremely tiny fraction that does can lead to fusion, of which...
