- Jun 8, 2008That's right, Pete,
There is not much activity on the forum. However, this doesn't mean
that there is no pop-pop activity. Last week I travelled to the
Netherlands to meet first in Amsterdam a specialist of coil engines
and then in Leeuwarden two students who intend to propel by means of
a pop-pop engine a real size boat with two men on board. This boat
will run a race this month in the framework of their studies with a
pop-pop engine heated by the sun. Yes, a solar pop-pop. As if things
were not enough difficult Due to the very weak power developed by a
pop-pop engine they have not the least possibility to win the race
and they are aware of this. However, what is very interesting is the
fact that their first solar pop-pop engine worked. I'll let you know
Two months ago these students built a very interesting pop-pop engine
with many pressure and temperature sensors, but unfortunately the
design of the engine was not good enough to get a reasonable thrust.
That's a pity. And I'm afraid they will never build another one
because they will finish their studies next week and then they will
start a new life.
