    any scientists in here?

    I am a physicist-climatologist-geologist-teacher, just curious if there are any in here?

    i understand that most musicians could (and in my opinion ought to be) be classed as scientists and mathematicians of the most practical kind

    I happen to be an amateur backyard astronomer once in a while and
    you almost have to be a chemist to bake a cake or cookies. I cook
    like a mad scientist sometimes experimenting with foods.

    Dvelopment of methanation catalysts. Nickel/aluminum oxide catalysts usable for the exothermic conversion of carbon monoxide and hydrogen to methane and water as an integral part of a chemical heat pump project. Well, you asked.

    Hi Art Rock,

    Could that chemical heat pump be used for heating multi-unit/multi-story housing? I would guesstimate large mechanical facilities for to provide usable quantities of energy at reasonable prices to large housing buildings and their tenants.

    Just curious...

    Cheers,

    it was actually meant to transport energy from a remote location (carrying out the endothermic reverse reaction there with energy supplied by a nuclear plant) to a city, where the exothermic methanation reaction would release the heat, for instance to be used in city heating or for electricity generation. It never got into a practical application though.

    Hi Art Rock,

    Thanx for sharing. The idea sounds interesting - I had wondered about the energy input and the first thought to my mind was nuclear. Do you teach now or are you employed by private or public enterprise?

    Well, I am just functionally addicted to science and bad weather. My dog hates when the dew point is unpredictable: Lucy hates having her paws step into spiky morning dew. So she is well paper trained. Such a perfect wife. lol
