Abstract:
Nanotech educational video features Air Force scientists' new fuel from aluminum nanoparticles

Just Add Water

Posted on March 9th, 2010

Scientists at an Air Force Research Lab in Dayton, Ohio have developed an amazing new way to harness the hydrogen energy stored in ordinary tap water.

The secret is aluminum nanoparticles. By adding water to their specially-coated nanoparticles, the scientists can produce over a thousand liters of hydrogen gas from a single liter of water. This new fuel is being designed to provide power in emergency situations - but it could also be used in rocket engines or airplanes.

According to research chemist, Dr. Christopher Bunker, "You have your palette of paints, the chemicals, and what you can do and where you can go is only limited by your own imagination."

The Air Force scientists are featured in a new educational video from the Naitonal Defense Education Program's LabTV. Aimed at getting the next generation excited about careers in science, LabTV provides educational webisodes on nanotech, engineering, mathematics, and more.

About National Defense Education Program
The National Defense Education Program (NDEP) invests in science, engineering and math education from middle and high school through college and post graduation. NDEP's mission is to support a new generation of scientists and engineers who will apply their talents in our nation's defense laboratories.

About Lab TV
Aimed squarely at Generation YouTube, LabTV presents an insider's view of every day work undertaken by DoD scientists and engineers. Fast-pace and succinct, LabTV showcases an astonishing breadth of research, from dolphin training, to high tech gloves for large groups of moon-walking astronauts, to turning banana peels into fuel. Each video encourages young students with an initial interest in math and science to continue their education and, perhaps, consider a career at a Defense laboratory.
