Charles Shults | New Energy Sources


May 11, 2010
Aerospace and defense systems developer Sir Charles Shults discussed his investigations into new energy sources, as well space exploration and the search for ET life. On the horizon for energy,
there's "real progress steps being taken in the generation of fusion power," with test reactors using hydrogen or possibly Helium 3, he noted. Also being explored is random thermal energy, which
takes the random motion of molecules and extracts a little bit of energy from them. This might be realized through nanotechnology inside the form of a battery, he explained.

New types of fuel cells that consume a simple mixture of methanol and water are coming down in price and could run a laptop for a week, and a radio for up to a year, he detailed. Also, research is
currently being done to create wireless electricity systems, such that we could eliminate power wires and towers across the country. He said he's had some success creating prototypes of this type
of system, which Tesla first experimented with a century ago. "One of the projects I'm working on is to give away some of the technologies I've developed, and I need to be contacted by people who
are seriously interested in producing this stuff," Shults shared.

Regarding Mars, NASA is finally admitting that the planet was once covered in oceans, and "they are tentatively saying there may have been life," he reported. When it comes to the search for ET
signals, he suggested that we be looking for broadband rather narrow signals, "and at mathematical constants, not the water-hole frequencies."
