SRS plutonium plan under review

...said it keeps plutonium in a form that preserves the energy and the essence of its creation. "We won't lose the energy content of the plutonium, and we can at least recover a portion of that investment," said Ernest Chaput, of the Economic...

SRS may profit from plutonium plan

...or a liability. Given the cost of producing it, some people - especially in Russia - wanted to reuse it for its energy content. Others, including many senior officials of the Clinton administration and arms-control activists, wanted it...

...15 mpg highway vs. 15/20 mpg for the same vehicle using regular gasoline. That is because ethanol has a lower energy content than gasoline, so drivers using E85 can expect to stop to fill up the tank more often. Unfortunately, I didn't...
Hydrogen economy in the making?

...Hydrogen holds more long-term potential than the other options because, among other things, it has the highest energy content per unit of weight than any other known fuel. This apparently makes hydrogen fuel cells the most practical way to...
