Konstantin Balakiryan: Super Detector For Neutrinos "Beta-1AT"

Professor K.Balakiryan proposes a new strategy for studying solar and cosmic neutrinos.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The interest of physicists from all over the world is chained to the neutrino – the most mysterious and elusive particle of the micro world. Neutrinos practically do not interact with molecules of any substances, as they thoroughly pierce our planet. Can you imagine that while you were reading the first 7 lines of this press release, several billions of neutrinos flew through your body, yet you had no awareness of this occurring? Each neutrino carries a unique “biography” from when it was formed. If we could "catch” and measure their flow, then for example, solar neutrinos would tell us about the features of the processes that occur in the bowels of the Sun which provides life on our Planet. A neutrino flux of cosmic origin would reveal to us the secrets of astronomical phenomena both in our Galaxy and far beyond its limits, including such events as the birth of new stars, quasars, and black holes. Countries leading in scientific research which are very interested in studying neutrinos are building huge detectors and telescopes for detecting neutrinos in deep tunnels under the earth, under water, and in the ice of the Antarctic.

However, the effectiveness of these detectors is extremely low, at just 10-15 neutrino detection events per year. The reason for such rare detectable collisions of neutrinos with the nuclei of oxygen and hydrogen atoms in water is that all three known neutrino types: electron neutrino, moon neutrino, and tau neutrino, have an ultra-low interaction cross section. For neutrinos to be "noticed”, even with a very high (>10^15 eV) and extra high energy (>10^18 eV) in a detector with water filling, they must collide with the nucleus of and oxygen or hydrogen atom. As a result of this interaction, a muon is produced, which, continuing the motion exceeding the speed of light in the water, causes a luminescence, (Cherenkov radiation) recorded by photomultipliers. In order to increase the number of collisions in recent years, scientists have begun to increase the size of neutron detectors. In our view, this is an erroneous path, as with these efforts researchers do not observe significant changes to the amount of collisions However, the number of collisions of neutrinos with oxygen and hydrogen nuclei in water can be dramatically (hundreds or even thousands of times) increased due to the collective excitation of these atoms. To do this, first of all, the water volume of the neutron detector must be additionally saturated with oxygen and hydrogen atoms dissociated through electrolysis. In the process of electrolysis, direct current is first fed to special electrodes, resulting in the dissociation of water models, and then electrical pulses are fed to the same electrodes in a wide range of frequencies and amplitudes that contribute to the intense excitation of oxygen and hydrogen atoms.

The effect of the excitation of hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a neutrino detector is enhanced due to cavitation in the aquatic environment creating an ultrasonic generator.

For clarity, I will give an example entirely from another sphere. Many of you have probably seen children play a fussball table game. In order to protect their gates, a player very intensively moves his goalkeeper along the goal line, trying to close the space where the ball can go. Something similar happens with excited oxygen and hydrogen atoms, which in a certain volume of water create for the neutrino an almost “continuous obstacle” that becomes targets for them.

Based on the data of our experiments, we formulated the following hypothesis: “High-energy neutrinos colliding with the nucleus of an oxygen atom “break” it into 8 protons, 8 neutrons and 8 electrons that become part of a common electronic “cloud”. As is known, the lifetime of free neutrons is less than 15 minutes, more precisely, the half-life of neutrinos is 611 ± 0.8 s. This is the so-called beta decay, in which the spontaneous transformation of a free neutron into a proton occurs with the emission of electrons and electron antineutrinos. Then each proton “captures” one electron from the “cloud” and turns into a hydrogen atom. Thus, in the water volume of the neutrino detector, the number of hydrogen atoms whose nucleus is a proton increases noticeably.

Our hypothesis was fully confirmed by measurements of several independent companies that deserve the highest level of trust in the United States. (1. Air Kinetics, Inc.; 2. Horizon Air Measurement Services; 3. TRC Environmental Corporation)

According to the data presented by those three groups of independent researchers, the average indicator of the presence of hydrogen at the output of the Symphony-7A was 97%, about 2% nitrogen and practically proved the complete absence of oxygen — less than 1%. Whereas it is known that water contains only 11.19% hydrogen and 88.81% oxygen. This indicates that we created a hydrogen reactor in which a neutrino achieved a fantastic result that is of great importance for our civilization. By installing photomultipliers in this reactor, we could record hundreds of thousands of events revealing Cherenkov radiation occurring when neutrinos collide with protons.

This gave us the idea that it would be extremely interesting to conduct experiments on neutrino detection together with Japanese specialists. Since the Super-Kamiokande was built specifically to search for hypothetical proton decay, it would be highly beneficial for us to take part in solving this scientific problem with the help of the super neutron detector Beta-1AT. Utilizing the Beta-1AT would allow at least 2-3 orders of magnitude increase in the fixation of collisions of nuclei hydrogen atoms with cosmic and solar neutrinos.

Downstream 2019: Advisory Board of Major Downstream Executives Meeting in Houston to Discuss Rising Workforce Demands

The group of leaders from across the spectrum of capital projects, reliability, maintenance & process engineering will be at a meeting in Houston November 12

Our 3-month research phase for Downstream 2019 generated several key themes – all of which will be covered on June 11-12 2019 in Houston at the world’s premier event for the Downstream industry”

— Kerr Jeferies

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — November 8 2018
Advisory Board of Major Downstream Executives Meeting in Houston to Discuss Meeting Rising Workforce Demands

With more than 80% of project, site and maintenance executives researched ahead of Downstream 2019 citing ‘resourcing’ as their most immediate challenge when running capital projects, site operations and maintenance, it’s clear that more attention needs to be given to problem than ever before.
For the industry to act, first it will be critical to align key definitions and best practice in learning & development, talent acquisition and future skills sustainability.
That’s why Petrochemical Update has decided to make the critical issue of ‘workforce development’ a cornerstone not only of the Downstream 2019 program, but also central to the work of the full conference advisory board.
This group of business leaders from across the spectrum of capital projects, reliability, maintenance & process engineering will be at an invite-only meeting in Houston on November 12 to reflect on the challenge and offer invaluable peer insights with a view to overcoming this major challenge.
A select group of 50 executives will be joining us for the afternoon, including:

VP Petrochemicals Audobon
Project Operations Lead Bechtel
LNG Plant Services Manager Bechtel
PRC Digital Strategy Analyst Chevron
VP Technical Site Management Covestro
Global EPC Contract Manager Dow Chemical
DFRAM Global Expertise Leader Dow Chemical
Senior Project Manager DowDuPont
Global Director of Construction Execution Fluor
VP Projects Freeport LNG
Senior Procurement Specialist INEOS
VP & General Manager Petroleum & Chemicals Jacobs
SVP Strategy & Business Development Jacobs
VP Downstream Kiewit
Global Manager – Performance Improvement LyondellBasell
President Sandpiper Chemicals
IT Innovation Lead Shell New Energies

The meeting will take place over the afternoon of November 12. In a presentation to the Advisory Board, Peter Beard (SVP Workforce Development, Greater Houston Partnership) will explore the critical resource needs in the petrochemicals industry to better measure workforce availability stresses over the next five years. Moreover, what needs to be done to overcome corporate barriers and respond to the urgency of the gap between resource need and projected capacity.

Attendees will then join roundtable sessions which will first agree on a definition of the ‘workforce equation’. Does every company treat each issue the same? Where are the gaps? Each table will share best practice on one of the key areas (talent acquisition, learning & development and future skills needs) and one success story (How are we meeting the challenge now? Technology, modularization/prefab, training etc). Each table will also come up with one ‘blue sky’ solution and discuss strategies to address urgency at the executive level. Petchem-Update will note and produce a paper on the shared learnings.

Kerr Jeferies, Project Director for Downstream 2019 said: ‘Our 3-month research phase for Downstream 2019 generated several key themes – all of which will be covered on June 11-12 2019 in Houston at the world’s premier event for the Downstream industry. However, at this Advisory Board meeting, we are focusing on an issue of rapidly rising importance for the whole value chain so that we may uncover vital lessons learned and new practices for responding to critical project and workforce resourcing challenges; the opportunities of talent acquisition and availability, learning & development, resource/skills shortages, workforce sustainability, project competitiveness, labor quality and project safety.
This invite-only meeting is a chance for top executives to explore these issues in depth, and we will be publishing a whitepaper of findings and recommendations aimed at senior executives in the downstream industry as a result’.

Downstream 2019 (June 11-12, Houston, Texas) will be on a scale never seen before, bringing together 10,000 exhibition visitors, 3,000+ conference attendees and more than 350+ trade booths. Also, at the Advisory Board Meeting, the event organizers will provide a critical overview of how this scale will be possible and speak to the core themes of content generated in the 3-month program research phase.

Dov Bechhofer Discusses Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Their Potential in Automobiles

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Computer Engineer Dov Bechhofer reflects on hydrogen fuel cell technology and how we have the potential to integrate it into our automobiles as a way to replace fossil fuels.

Fuel cells produce electrical energy that can be used to power heavy machinery without the harmful emissions we’re used to. Scientists have already applied fuel cell technology to power space shuttles, helping astronauts break the atmosphere and reach space while fighting against the pull of Earth’s gravity.

Although fuel cells are used today in select applications, Dov Bechhofer is hopeful that this revolutionary technology will make more mainstream and consumer-focused appearances in the future.

“The world is run on only around 20% of renewable energy right now. Automobiles account for a tremendous portion of air pollution, and if we can implement more clean energy into our cars, our environment would be much better off,” says Dov Bechhofer

Fuel cells are engine-like machines that can produce clean energy using hydrogen and oxygen (the basic components of water) to convert chemical energy into electricity. That electricity can then be used to power engines and act as an electrical generator. Already, scientists use fuel cells in cold, remote places such as in South Pole research centers to create energy where there’s little (if any).

A fuel cell is a stable machine without any need for moving parts unlike traditional engines. This makes it especially useful on space crafts where violent vibrations may undo vehicle integrity. Engineers like Dov Bechhofer hope to see that same space tech applied to automobiles on a large scale to help battery-powered cars in their fight to leave fossil fuels in the past.

Recently, scientists have tested out fuel cell technology in large vehicles such as buses, determining if they are a stable addition to mass public transportation systems. Car buyers may stumble across rare vehicles that already use fuel cell technology (such as the Hyundai ix35 FCEV and the Toyota Mirai) to test out on their own.

“There are a few restrictions that stop scientists from putting fuel cell technology into more widespread use, and the most notable is the cost of parts,” says Dov Bechhofer.

While fuel cells are stable and non-moving machines, the tremendous heat they produce is what’s holding most plans of implementation back. The materials needed to keep up the engine while producing that much heat are extremely expensive and not at all affordable for the average consumer. But scientists are working hard to find the happy medium between lowering the heat production and constructing engines with cheaper but suitable materials.

The energy produced from fuel cells are much kinder on the environment and atmosphere since the only byproduct––in most cases––is water. Along with other types of renewable energy being used today (such as wind turbines and solar panels), fuel cells are expected to phase out fossil fuels within the next few generations and help keep our planet clean for the generations after that.

Invest Zimbabwe Forum Explores Tourism, Mining and Finance Opportunities in Zimbabwe in 2018

Invest Zimbabwe Forum

Zimbabwe is open for business

The establishment of ZIDA sets the stage for a much more conducive investment ecosystem.”

— Dr. Washington T. Mbizvo, Chairman, One Stop Investment Services Centre

HILTON CANARY WHARF, LONDON, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Zimbabwe is open for business – this was the strong message heard at the Invest Zimbabwe Forum held in London on Thursday. In her opening address, Hon. Priscah Mupfumira, Minister of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry reminded investors that Zimbabwe is now open for business, and highlighted that the country has been rated a top three global tourism destination for 2019 by Lonely Planet.

The forum allowed top government officials, industry experts and international leaders to come together to discuss Zimbabwe’s investment opportunities, and to address the challenges of operating in entering one of southern Africa’s most prospective economies. The message is clear, invest in Zimbabwe.

The one-day investment forum — centred around the theme of 'Unlocking Value Through Fresh Perspectives' — was endorsed by the Zimbabwe Investment and Development Agency (ZIDA) and addressed pressing topics for Zimbabwe’s investment community, including reassessing political risk in Zimbabwe, the ease of doing business and cross-sector opportunities.

A delegation from the newly formed ZIDA, led by Dr. Washington T. Mbizvo, Chairman of the One Stop Investment Services Centre, explained to delegates the regulatory and procedural elements of starting a business in Zimbabwe, also expounding on the opportunities available in Zimbabwe’s special economic zones.

Dr. Mbizvo outlined the advantages arising from the creation of ZIDA, saying that “the establishment of ZIDA sets the stage for a much more conducive investment ecosystem.” The summit also celebrated the launch of ‘Invest Zimbabwe 2018,’ a 200-page business intelligence publication dedicated to providing an insight into the nation’s economy.

The high-profile event took place as part of policymakers’ efforts to promote Zimbabwe as an investment destination, and to assist investors in establishing and growing their businesses in the country.
