    We envision a new concept in energy storage - the ultra capacitor. We invite the next generation of inventors and engineers to construct an electrical energy storage device far more advanced, far more environmental, and far more affordable than we have seen yet in our lifetime. Part of the "WHAT'S YOUR CRAZY GREEN IDEA?" X PRIZE video contest, found here: http://www.youtube.com/group/crazygreenidea

            On October 4th, 2004 SpaceShipOne was the first private vehicle to make it in to space and after a second successful flight won the Ansari X-Prize. On July 28th, 2008 WhiteKnightTwo rolled out on the runway with SpaceShipTwo getting ready for a 2009 rollout. These new crafts will enable for the first time in human history privatized space travel. Anyone, you included, will be able to reach low earth orbit and experience weightlessness. This will forever change the course of human exploration. This is the story of Virgin Galactic.

              Is this the highest "MPG" of any similar-weight electric car or truck? For Electric Vehicles: Low Amps = High Mileage If you have an electric vehicle with similar total weight that draws fewer amps, I'll buy you lunch! The breakthroughs on this EV are for sale in BuySellCommunity [dot com] as well as EV Trading Post. Here's just one listing: http://www.buysellcommunity.com/sale/FQEYERUP/ We are offering what we know about electric cars, bikes, and scooters for sale to anyone. Rob Matthies A Vancouver Gadgeteer gadgeteers [at] operamail [dot] com With electric vehicles, the "race" is not who is fastest, but rather, who has the LOWEST CURRENT DRAW on an long uphill road or bridge. Only a vehicle with clever "electricals" can do this. If you pull out your calculator, you'll realize that the relatively very-low-watts involved here are close to what is theoretically possible. Can you show a lower current draw on a similar-size/weight electric vehicle? Can Any Electric Truck Show a Lower Amperage Uphill Run? If you have an electric pickup, how many amps (at 120VDC nominal) do you draw going up a bridge? About 400 amps, probably? Lower amps = Longer range Also, the batteries on this EV were dicarded, worn-out batteries, some from 2003 and from mixed sizes, types, and voltages.
