gabl8a89 Posted May 18, 2011 Share Posted May 18, 2011 Im not expertise on this field, however I do concern about the sustainability on our earth. and finding a renewable energy base on quantum physics seems inspire me alot. I know there is a new form of energy call vacuum energy and it exist everywhere, everytime, but why we can't exploit this energy? according to E=mc2, when two virtual particles collide, they should just like matter-antimatter collide, which ends up as gammaway. According wikipedia, "the vacuum energy in a cubic centimeter of free space has been estimated to be 10−15Joules." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_energy which mean if we can build something big enough, such as a device 1000000000000000 x 1000000000000000 x 1000000000000000 big, we should able to extract 1 J of energy in the given time. I know my idea sounds stupid to some of you, but assume we are now able to build this hypothetical device is that really going to extract 1 J in every given time and recharge my MP3 player?
