Canoas-"You cannot transfer heat into empty space."

Of course you can. The very cold of space makes it easy as a temperature dump. That's the EASY part of his idea. Get the heat above the atmosphere, and space itself becomes the heatsink.

The hard part is the beanstalk (aka: Tsiolkosvsky Tower, orbital tether or Space elevator). The concept is simple (has been around since 1895): Superstrong cable(s) mounted at the equator extending out WELL past geostationary orbit range with a counterweight at the far end. As long as the center of mass is above the geostationary level, it would never fall.


We just dont (currently) have the materials to build it. It could provide a heat transfer device, easy access to space, and a good `jumping off` point at the counterwieght (as you`d be past the stationary point).

gcghost-"Your explanation of how an AC works is retarded!"

Actually, his basic theory is correct.

You can not cool down air, you can only remove the heat from it.

Air's natural state it Cold. With no outside contamination, Air would be ~ -273°C. When the Air temperature is, say, 90° but you want it cooler, you use an Air Conditioner to remove heat until that air feels cooler. That heat is dissapated at some other point (evaporator), along with the heat created by the A/C unit. The overall effect is you generate more heat, but not in the room you`re in.

And DrProfessor was right, just did not express it well. The process does not create more heat than it removed from the air. What he meant (I think) is that the amount of heat removed PLUS the heat created by the unit results in a net increase, overall.
