On the subject of costs --After the discussion and the perusal of lists of European costs per kilo-watt hour I conclude that even with partial conversion to renewables --wind and solar are 2 to 3 times more expensive as coal and nuclear.

Sadly that's a true fact for the future. Due to the upcome of renewables green energy will make your invoice 30% more expensive than grey energy. That means the consumer will have to pay 180 euros more on a year base in 2016 compared to 2015. It even increases to 233 euros, depending on your distribution manager and your tariff.

However for just one example, you get payback BIG TIME for the reduced CO2 pollution reducing the landfall by just one hurricane...

We also get a more general payback for suffering less from the presently ever increasing deluges of rain and ensuing flash floods...


As for the supposed x2 or x3 costs: Care to share your present day figures for that?...


All on our only one planet,
Martin


Most people only look at their wallets nowadays Martin, believe me I have around 70 customers a day and that's what's most important for the greater part. (this should've been in the denial thread:(

A "NIRSpec-tacular View" of NASA's Webb Telescope Instrument


A NASA photographer recently captured a "NIRSpec-tacular" photo of an instrument that will fly aboard NASA's James Webb Space Telescope when it launches in 2018.
Access into a clean room to get a close-up view of a complicated, high-value scientific instrument is carefully controlled, but NASA photographers get such exclusive entry all the time. Photographer Chris Gunn took this image of the NIRSpec instrument inside the giant cleanroom at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The Near-Infrared Spectrograph or NIRSpec is a multi-object spectrograph, which is a tool for observing many objects in the cosmos simultaneously. The NIRSpec takes in light from around 100 distant objects and records their spectra (band of colors produced when sunlight is passed through a prism), separating the light into its components using prisms and other optical devices.
The NIRSpec will join three other Webb science instruments that will be mounted on the Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM). The ISIM structure is like the frame of a in a car providing support for the engine and other components.
In the photo, the NIRSpec is the large silver mass on the right-hand side. The silver frame-like object on the left side is part of the ISIM structure.

Happy Birthday CERN!


A September packed with events to celebrate CERN’s 60th anniversary


Geneva, 1 September 2014.
On 29 September 1954, the CERN1 Convention entered into force, officially establishing the European Organization for Nuclear Research with 12 European member states. Now the world's biggest particle physics laboratory, CERN is celebrating “60 years of science for peace” with an official ceremony and several public events taking place throughout September.
The highlight of this anniversary month will be the official ceremony on 29 September, which will be attended by many representatives of CERN’s Member States, Associate Member States and Observers. Journalists can attend this event, subject to having obtained accreditation before 18 September via Indico.
“With its discoveries and innovations, CERN has been bringing the world together through science for 60 years. We'd like to celebrate this important anniversary with our friends and neighbours.”, said Rolf Heuer, CERN’s Director General.
CERN is also inviting the general public to several cultural events commemorating its anniversary: concerts, a film, a play, shows and lectures will all bring science to the general population, adults and children alike.
