@Ruswut, i just ment they arnt dangerous at the density they are found in the atmosphere. your right that any long term exposure to higher density silcates will cause irritation of the lungs and possible silicosis.

pretty neat how bodies of water affect atmospheric conditions.... i live by a fairly large lake and some days it will rain all over the city but my neighborhood stays dry....

"Parts of this aren't true. I live in Donegal, which is the North-West of Ireland, and it says on this there was ash covering the whole of Ireland on the 18th..Not true..The skies were clear blue all day yesterday and today, and throughout the night...Just sayin..."

Skys are clear blue here in england yet no plane can leave or arrive here because of it.

@tozham actually depending on the size of the silicate particles they could be harmful...

No airplanes are able to leave or enter Norway right now because of that volcano. People who were on vacation are stuck and aren't able to get back in probably a couple of weeks.

The smoke is possibly going to stay for 1-3 years, like the last time that volcano errupted.

The Eurovision contest is hosted in Norway in a few months, and who knows how the other contestants are going to make it here.

On the bright side, that may mean we will win again 2 years in a row. :P

You wont see it because its not visible with the naked eye. It mostly consists of very finely dispersed silicate particles which, while not directly dangerous to humans, could f*ck a jet engine easy.

It's over where I am in England....all the airports have been closed because the ash will totally screw up a planes engines. And they say now that an even bigger volcano is gonna erupt....it erupted before and that whole year was one long winter in the entire northern hemisphere because the sun just never got through the giant ash clowd

Not exactly.


Yes, exactly. In several countries.

Energy is required to wind the cable back up - energy equal to the amount generated by unwinding it.


That's the guts of where you're wrong. The amount of energy needed to wind the cable back in is significantly less than the amount generated by the cable being pulled out because you vary the angle of the kite.

On the way out, it's tilted perpendicular to the wind. It catches the wind like a sail and is pulled out with a lot of force.

On the way back, it's tilted parallel to the wind. The surface area presented to the wind is hugely reduced, so the air exerts far less force on the kite, so far less energy is needed to retract the cable.

It's like the difference between a ship under full sail and a ship with its sails furled - a huge difference.

It's not pure theory - kite power rigs have been built and do have a net generation of electricity.
