Does anyone have knowledge of technical developments on this being made publically available? It seems that there is little information on technical progress on this, indicating that the whole field may have been “put under lock and key” – perhaps it is too disruptive to a certain energy monopoly that is still controlling how we make energy…
Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) (magneto fluid dynamics or hydromagnetics) is an academic discipline which studies the dynamics of electrically conducting fluids. Examples of such fluids include plasmas, liquid metals, and salt water or electrolytes. The word magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is derived from magneto- meaning magnetic field, and hydro- meaning liquid, and -dynamics meaning movement. The field of MHD was initiated by Hannes Alfvén, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1970.
The fundamental concept behind MHD is that magnetic fields can induce currents in a moving conductive fluid, which in turn creates forces on the fluid and also changes the magnetic field itself.
Phi Beta Iota: A government with integrity would apply intelligence and counterintelligence to eliminate the possibility of knowledge being “locked up.” It is clear that this is precisely what has happened over the past century. In addition to externalizing true costs and optimizing very poisonous / toxic legacy systems, the industrial and financial powers have actively worked against the public interest (suicidal seeds from Monsanto, obesity additions, vaccines that kill, etcetera. We know the answer to the question, “who governs?” We also know the answer to the question “For whom do they govern?” What we do not know is the answer to the most important question: “How shall we establish governance that is absolutely in the interest of the public and committed to the common good?”
