Gilbert was a young fireman when he was injured in a motorcycle accident that put him out of work for several months. I remember that each of the men of his department stepped up to work his shift so he did not miss work or a pay check. For many years Gilbert volunteered to work holidays, and shifts for others to pay back the debt he felt he owed to the firemen on the line. Boulder has done well to advance Gilbert through the ranks. God bless you brother for the care you have for your men, may he look over you all. I know your sister is watching over you.

The SR was the last aircraft designed with a slide rule, was first drawn on a door laid between two desks in a door way and after 50 years still holds every air speed and altitude record for an operational aircraft. Runs on hydrocarbons 8,000gl/hr. Grin

The true father of electricity,the radio, and the electric car is Nikola Tesla. In 1930 he drove a car with a motor and receiver of his own design at speeds to 90 miles an hour over several days with no batteries, charging, or power supply other than radio waves. Westinghouse determined that there is no profit in Free energy and cut his funding.

It’s been used experimentally. Yes, it has triple the energy per pound and it’s clean-burning, but it’s bulky. A gallon of diesel weighs 6 pounds. A gallon of LH weighs about 1/3 of a pound, so to get 6 pounds, you have to have 18 gallons. Heck, to get the same energy as one gallon of diesel, you have to have 6 gallons of LH. Add to that the fact that its a cryogenic liquid and requires high-pressure heavy steel tanks, and it’s a losing proposition quickly. Besides, LH is made from natural gas so it won’t solve the carbon footprint problem.
