Oxygen when not breathing:

I have heard of liqui-vent, perflurocarbons, surfactants that act like artificial blood and carry oxygen. I think the CRAY computers used it. In an old episode of Beyond 2000, you saw electronics immersed in thistype liquid without shorting out:

Re: Higgs bosuns, inertial damping, artificial gravity, and Star Trek

Now here is something to consider for folks who like retro tech computers but want a modern explanation.

The TOS bridge consoles had a lot of knobs and switches jutting through a slick black surface, right?

Maybe this is that surface:

The answer is that they were always using touch screens--its just that the visible buttons were re-writable function keys for haptics and as back ups.

*Anti-nuclei* http://arxiv.org/abs/1208.3614 Groups are looking for evidence of anti-nuclei in cosmic rays. Anti-protons are one thing, but seeing anything heavier than anti-Helium would be strong evidence for their being regions of the universe with anti-matter dominating.

Space Solar Power
http://thespacereview.com/article/2112/1

Energy storage:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superco...energy_storage

To achieve commercially useful levels of storage, around 1 GW·h (3.6 TJ), a SMES installation would need a loop of around 100 miles (160 km). This is traditionally pictured as a circle, though in practice it could be more like a rounded rectangle. In either case it would require access to a significant amount of land to house the installation.

Good for space based power that doen't need large surface areas for photovoltaric arrays?
