The roots of Mercedes Benz

On December 31, 1878, a guy named Karl Benz applied for a patent for a two-stroke engine design. Numerous patents had been pursued for the four stroke engine and Benz sought to patent an idea in a less crowded technological arena. In addition to Benz’ designs, several fundamental patent ideas followed for the two-stroke engine in the next decade.

One of the early innovators of the four stroke engine was a guy named Otto, who also worked with a guy name Daimler, which should be familiar names. Early attempts to build a car were thus probably called an Otto-Mobile.

Gliese 710 and the Oort Cloud

Planet Earth and our Sun, as well as the other (now 7) planets are often depicted as larger and larger rings in space, but the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud are made up of billions of comets, meteors and asteroids in three dimensions. But to get an idea of the true makeup of our Solar System, first consider that the entire mass of the gravitational influence of our Solar System is more than 100,000 times the orbit of the Earth, and shaped more like a sphere than a disk.

Light travels from the surface of the Sun to Earth in just over eight minutes, and to Neptune in four hours. The distance from the center of the Sun to the center of the Earth is defined as one Astronomical Unit, or AU. The edges of the Oort cloud are 50,000 AU from the Sun, which would be the radius, the diameter being 100,000 AU.

Within our planetary orbits lies the main asteroid belt. A handful of celestial bodies make up the vast bulk of the mass of this belt. This belt is more disc shaped. But further out from the orbit of our main planets is a much larger mass of billions of objects making up the spherically shaped Oort Cloud.

Here lies the problem with Gliese 710, and its expected approach to our Solar System. In 1.4 million years, Gliese 710 will have traveled over 60 light years at 50,000 mph towards the 100,000 Astronomical Unit diameter mass of our Solar System. While it is unlikely that calculations can be made accurately enough to predict whether Gliese 710, roughly more than half the mass of the Sun, will impact Earth, the Sun or any other planet, it only needs to travel within 25,000 AU or so of the Oort Cloud to start a chain reaction of events.

The billions of objects in the Oort cloud have had billions of years to settle into predictable orbits that keep the bulk of them from intersecting in orbits with Earth or the inner planets. But once gravitational forces from Gliese 710 act on the cloud, billions of objects will have these orbits stretched to different dimensions. While there orbits around the Solar System have periods of many thousands of years, there will at that point be billions of objects whose disrupted orbits over hundreds or thousands of years will now threaten the inner ranks of the Solar System.

Additionally, if Gliese 710 intersects more closely with the Sun, in the neighborhood of a few dozen AU or less, the impact on the orbits of the inner planets would be severe. Then there is the incredibly remote possibility that its path intersects with Earth or the Sun. That would surely be noticed.

Charge Controllers



VOLTAGE RATING

Most solar panel arrays are designed for 12 VDC. Combinations in series could produce 24 or 36 VDC. But the better approach is to stay with a 12 volt system and charge a 12 volt battery system. a dozen 12 volt car battery array could run your refrigerator for up to a week, depending on the size and efficiency of the refrigerator and how often you open the door.

CONTROLLERS

If you are performing a small experiment you can collect a small solar panel to a car battery. When you connect multiple arrays to multiple batteries to is time to use a solar charge controller.

Benefits of a charge controller

  • Prevent over charging
  • Condition batteries
  • Prevent discharge at night
  • Manage discharge
  • Pretty blinking LED lights

When selecting a charge controller, the most important thing to match is the size of the solar array to the rating of the controller.

A good rule of thumb is that on a 12 volt solar array, for every 15 watts of solar array we need an amp of solar charging controller.

Link to 4.5 Amp Waterproof Solar Charger

As we write this article, $38.00 gets you a 4.5 amp solar charge controller, which would then well serve 70 watts of solar panels. They also happen to sell a 70 watt solar panel for $225.00

If you have run an array of one dozen car batteries, a 70 watt solar panel would charge that over time, measured in hours. a 70 watt system with no losses would provide 70 watt/hours per hour. Large car batteries might store 700 watt/hours. Each battery that is 50% discharged will need 4-6 hours of direct sunlight to charge.

By the way, one final thought, a 1500 watt inverter, to provide a 120 volt outlet for a refrigerator or freezer will cost around $200.00, so not including batteries we are spending around $500 on the panel, controller and inverter. Now go find a dozen batteries and a sunny spot.



Habitable Worlds



Other than Earth, Wikipedia lists 17 planets that could have sunshine and liquid water in our solar system, at distances ranging from 4.2 lightyears to 2500 lightyears away. If this were a complete list, we could break down our solar system into habitable areas of 2500 lightyears in diameter.

We would further consider that life could not be sustained in the interior of the Milky Way, due to Gamma Rays, Black Holes and other DNA squashing regularities of the interior.

So this would leave around 200 quadrants around the edge of the Milky Way, with several more in the arms such as where the Earth resides. Since no life has been detected in our local quadrant, other than Earth, we have little information with which to fill in the variables of the Drake Equation. Perhaps most of these quadrants have no life. But others contain two, or three civilizations.

We don’t know. Perhaps our own quadrant contains life that is closer to bacteria than to human. What is the likelihood that there is some primitive bacterial, stromatolite or even sponge like life in our quadrant. Some might say the odds are high.

But the odds of another civilization in our Milky Way are still difficult to ascertain. Two more civilizations? Five more? Certainly we have enough data to think it is unlikely that there are hundreds, or even a dozen civilizations in the Milky Way, and we still have no proof that there must be more than one.
