Wouldn't 'Let's go get smarter together' or 'today' or something of the likes be a bit more appropriate, due to it being an instance of becoming smarter rather than a culmination of instances at once? I feel like 'let's go get smarter every day' for one specific instance of becoming smarter is a bit misplaced and misnomed in comparison, and leads to a moment of awkwardness in my mind; as if it's advice, rather than a welcoming invitation. Maybe it's a solo perception, but here's to hoping this mention of insight can provide some benefit. Cheers, Destin.

Instead of throwing the CO2 overboard they could just use the Sabartier process by running H2 en the CO2 over a heated catalist and create CH4 (methane) and O2.

Flat coke still has CO2 in it, but it has the same amount of CO2 as the atmosphere whereas the fizzy coke has an excess amount of dissolved CO2 and it needs to escape and equalise. This is why coke doesn’t fizz before the bottle is open. And this is known as Henry’s law for anyone interested, it’s one of the gas laws.

Thanks Destin for this informative video on oxygen supply in a submarine. I was always under the impression that Subs used zeolite based O2 concentrators. Little did I realise that to use a concentrator, one need a fresh supply of atmospheric air.

We get the nitrogen in the boat as it’s just normal outside air before we shut the hatches. Then the nitrogen is relatively unconsumed.

I think they call them clinkers in reference to a blacksmithing term (it was probably used in many other industries, too) It generally refers to un-burnable impurities that remain after whatever fuel you're burning has been spent. Like when you are blacksmithing and burning coke (purified coal), you get solid lumps of impurities that you need to remove.

Why is lithium hydroxide not use in the exhausts of vehicles if it absorbes co2?
Faceless 2 сағат бұрын
Lithium Hydroxide filters are consumable unfortunately. They absorb the CO2 by reacting with it to produce lithium carbonate. Now it's obviously a bit more complex than that because why not just make them replaceable and keep it stored as lithium carbonate, for example... that's beyond anything I know but I would be interested in hearing it

Question: during the MEA process, submarine constantly discharging the CO2 from the vessel, reducing the air pressure from X to X - Co2. How do you balance the air pressure back to X? Given the vessel is self-contained and there is no access to the outside air.
