NETL And Carnegie Mellon Create New Paradigms For Hydrogen Production - SpaceDaily  Left:  "This research demonstrates our vision of coupling computational and experimental methods to facilitate rapid research and development of advanced technologies," said Anthony Cugini, focus area leader of Computational and Basic Sciences at NETL. "In essence, we are developing the computational tools to prescreen hydrogen separation membranes." These membranes allow pure hydrogen to pass through, while blocking impurities that are present with other gases in the production of hydrogen from fossil energy resources. Membranes have the ability to remove virtually all of the impurities from the hydrogen stream.    
Heat Response Evidence For Superfluidity In Cold 'Fermion' Gas - SpaceDaily  A new study has disclosed perhaps the strongest evidence to date for superfluidity in an exotic gas that mimics extreme behavior in Nature - ranging from high temperature superconductivity to the behavior of fundamental particles in the Big Bang, when the universe is believed to have begun in a huge burst of energy within a very small space. Experimentalists from Duke University and theorists from the University of Chicago noted a striking change in the ability of this "strongly interacting Fermi gas" to take in heat energy.     

Rumsfeld Asks For Restoration Of Nuclear 'Bunker Buster' Program - SpaceDaily  US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has asked for restoration of a supersecret research program designed to create a new class of nuclear weapons capable of destroying hardened underground targets, a Pentagon official said late Monday. Military experts said they were expecting a new attempt by the administration of President George W. Bush to restore the "bunker buster" nuclear weapons program that was defunded by Congress late last year under growing international and domestic criticism. Republican Representative David Hobson quietly removed 27.5 million dollars earmarked for the bomb study
