Re: Returned post
- No, no attachments. A couple of links which I don't normally do, but
no attachments. I've always entered the group and posted rather than
using email. There isn't a way for me to cc anyone, much less bcc.
Anyway here's what I tried to post before. Along with the return info.

I was looking through the space-tech group on google (Harvesting Mars)
and learned that at high pressures and temperatures, CO2 is said to
be "supercritical" (considered to be a fourth state of matter... I
thought that was plasma... guess there are 5 states...) A
supercritical gas has properties of both the gas state and liquid
state and becomes an excellant solvent. This message thread says it
can be used at mars to pull water out of rocks. (I think the carbon
reacts with the rock and the free oxygen atoms then react with
hydrogen in the rocks.) I looked up how it is used here on earth and
found some interesting applications.
When SCCO2 reacts with cement, it creates a denser kind of cement
with twice the strength of cement. Carbon content, if mememory
serves, was increased by about 50%. This pdf shows it being used to
put the waste-products of a coal power plant to use.
I read at
how the oceans naturally use CO2 to precipitate limestone. One of
these days I'll have to try and see if sea-water dissolved in SCCO2
would form limestone. If it does, we could use this when we get
around to Aquarius and create SCCO2 hardened concrete from the oceans.
If mememory serves, the supercritical point for CO2 is 70 bar and 30
deg cel. I'd have to double check that when I get around to
experimenting with it.

-maybe it's just the "bcc" thing (see below). But the luf-team list
is also moderated, which means you can't post to it unless it knows
you or a moderator approves your communication.

the difficulty of our getting around to doing anything. The second
is that a good healthy paranoia prevents us (like, me, for example)
from opening an attachment from someone I don't know. The third is
that Yahoo-groups won't pass attachments through its lists. And the
fourth is that not knowing what your attachment is about, why would
anyone (say me, for instance) bother with it?
> Sooo--strip the attachment down to its bare essentials and PASTE
them into the body of the email--no attachment, just a brief
paragraph (or two) explaining what the attachment (and the
communication in general) is good for. In other words, why luf-team
(or anyone) should bother with it. You can send this to me
personally, or you can send it to luf-team and it will go to the
moderators (like me) to review.
