# What's a Gigawatt???

## Recommended Posts

Today is the 50th anniversary of the invention of the flux capacitor.

HEH!

That film kicks ass.

Gigawatt

Watt = A unit of measure for work, that is, measured at the rate of one joule per second.

Kilowatt = 1,000 watts

Megawatt = 1,000 kilowatts

Gigawatt = 1,000 megawatt

Sooo.... 1 GW = 1,000,000,000 W

I wonder what kind of cake you give a flux capacitor?

HOORAY FOR NOT GETTING IT

Don't you get gold for 50? I suppose Mr. Fusion would like that...

As a kid I once got a 1/18 RC DeLorean for Christmas. You could recharge its batteries by plugging the flux capacitor to a power outlet. Great fun!

Time Machine?

1.21 JIGAWATTS?!

Poor DeLorean... They shouldn't have f*cked with the Sidhe.

Isn't that from back to the future?

Corvus could have have seriously pwn't D'sparil with some equipment like that...

D'oh, I missed it by an hour.

/me goes forward to the past

Hoorj! Birthday!

It seems too good to be true: a new source of near-limitless power that costs virtually nothing, uses tiny amounts of water as its fuel and produces next to no waste. If that does not sound radical enough, how about this: the principle behind the source turns modern physics on its head.

Maybe this is happening because any sub-shells in the 1st energy shell have been previously ignored/unatainable. In atoms, the energy differences in a shell is great enough to the extent where the highest energy electrons in the third shell have more energy than the lowest energy ones in the fourth shell. (See the transistion metals for this. Generally, the third shells electrons are increasing with number with the first two fourth level electrons already being filled)
