The peculiar V-shaped mouth with its pointed upper lip, the absence of brow ridges, the absence of a chin beneath the wedgelike lower lip, the incessant quivering of this mouth, the Gorgon groups of tentacles, the tumultuous breathing of the lungs in a strange atmosphere, the evident heaviness and painfulness of movement due to the greater gravitational energy of the earth--above all, the extraordinary intensity of the immense eyes--were at once vital, intense, inhuman, crippled and monstrous.
We've all learned to respect alternative energy derived from secondary gravitational energy, like wind or hydro, but primary gravity is a long-neglected energy source.
This will push the carbon upwards, and that separation will release gravitational energy."
Sites at Rawdat Rashed is located at the highest point of project route to allow the water to flow using gravitational energy at the times of emergency without using electric power.
Baja Green Energy's proprietary rights arise from a sustainable energy generator manufactured by Water and Energy for Life, headquartered in Holland and Mexico, which has created a revolutionary Gravitational Energy System that is fully compliant with the Mexican Clean Energy Reform Laws.
[R.sup.3]--a space, which dimension is 3, means a space of gravitational energy (the "weight space");
Redefining the gravitational energy density and the gravitational pressure density, the continuity equation has been satisfied.
Saturn is known to radiate more energy than it absorbs from the sun, so there's a net loss of gravitational energy. Getting a more accurate measurement of gases in Saturn's upper atmosphere by flying through it could help improve measurements of the planet's inner composition.
As the core collapses, it releases a lot of gravitational energy. A second shock wave ripples through the star--just powerful enough to burp off the loosely held outer layers of the supergiant and expose the feeding black hole.
Simply put, the find is a triumph for Einstein's celebrated general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics and the basis of his 1916 prediction that the fabric of the universe is perturbed by gravitational energy.
Some topics examined include geometric quantum mechanics, black holes in general relativity, a quasi-local Hamiltonian approach to gravitational energy, and general relativity and von Neumann algebras.
