why would the bulb rotate -- isn't it just sitting
on the table in the sunlight?

I left themost important question, since the effect obviously
is either or both aerodynamic & magnetohydrodynamic,
what the shape of the vanes is.

thus:
thank you!... now, if we could just get folks
to see that "all sorts" of modalities are needed
for prolonged spaceflight & a non-post-industrial economy
(current cargo-cult from SW Asia).

thus:
Copenhagen's "reifiying" of the mere probabilities
of detection, is the biggest problem, whence comes
both "perfect vacuum" and "quantum foam" etc. ad vomitorium,
as well as the brain-dead "photon" of massless and
momentumless and pointy rocks o'light, perfectly aimed
at the recieving cone in your eye, like a small pizza pie.

thus:
all vacuums are good, if they suck hard enough, but
there is no absolute vacuum, either on theoretical or
Copenhagenskooler fuzzy math grounds. ao,
what is the "ruling out" in the article?
> From what I've read so far I'm not buying any pure vacuum effect has
> been explained theoretically. Relying on Thomas's article from Baez

thus:
magnetohydrodynamics is probably the way to go, yes;
not "perfect vacuum or bearings" -- and,
about the air-pressure?... seems to me,
it's assuming Pascal's old, perfected Plenum.
twist your mind away from the "illustrated
in _Conceptual Physics/for Dummies_" nothingness
of the massless & momentumless & pointy "photon"
of the Nobel-winning "effect" in an electronic device -- yeah,
CCDs -- the Committee's lame attempt to "save the dysappearance"
of Newton's corpuscle.
til you can demonstrate it in a perpetuum mobile!

thus:
so, a lightmill is that thing with black & white vanes
on a spindle in a relative vacuum?
you can't rely on "rocks o'light" to impart momentum
to these vanes, only to be absorbed electromagnetically
by atoms in them; then, perhaps,
the "warm side" will have some aerodynamic/thermal effect
on the air in the bulb, compared to the cool one.

thus:
even if neutrinos don't exist,
> Could neutrino availability affect decay rates?

thus:
I've been saying, for a while, that if "green" gasoline can
be made ... anyway, see "Green Freedom" in the article,
which is not quite what I was refering to!
> http://thorium.50webs.com/

thus:
every technique has problems. like,
you can't grow hemp-for haemorrhoids under a photovoltaic,
without a good lightbulb.
the real problem is that, if Santa Monica is any indication,
the solar-subsidy bandwagon is part of the cargo-cult
from Southwest Asia (as is the compact flourescent lightbub,
the LED lightbulb etc. ad vomitorium).
> Government subsidies, and fat returns on PVs?
