FAR OUT Mass transportation and long distance electric transmission could be given a tremendous boost in some scenarios for the future, including this artist’s vision of a 4000 MPH long distance, underground MAGLEV system that also carries a superconducting cable.
The idea of replacing the antiquated national electrical grid with a smarter system that would also make long distance energy transmission more efficient is gaining more than a head of steam these days. It’s one of the provisions included in a Senate energy proposal that emerged from committee last week and separate bills movingthrough the House.
Dean Peterson suggests we seriously consider the advantages of superconducting.
A Los Alamos scientist, Peterson is associated with the Los Alamos National Laboratory Superconductivity Center, where a number of research and development projects have been underway for the last several years.
This evening in Española Peterson will gives his fourth and final talk in the lab’s Frontiers in Science series, entitled “Lost in Transmission.” It’s a comforting soft-shoe presentation about one of the ways advanced technology may yet snatch the world from the jaws of disaster.
