Search of infinite energy with 7,000 kilometers an hour
US start-up Hyper Sciences is developing a complex cannon gun in order to drill for geothermal energy kilometers deep costs effective.
Shell is investing $ 1 million in the start-up.
The concept of Hyper Sciences consists a projectile which is fired vertically into the ground. In some explosive stages, the bullet accelerates up to 7000 kilometers/hour. Cheaper drilling for geothermal energy is the goal for this new technology.
“We are solving a big energy problem,” said Mark Russell, CEO of Hyper Sciences at Geek Wire. “We will drill ten times faster than anyone has ever done.”
Russell has previously worked for Boeing, NASA and the space project of Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. His family has a background in mining. Russell uses the combined knowledge to make geothermal energy more appealing. Finally, he thinks the potential of infinite energy from the earth will make deep space flights possible too.
Ten times faster
When the cannon in the rock pops, it will evaporate and pulverize the rock. The debris can be removed relatively easy.
With several shoots, Hyper Sciences expects to reach over three kilometers of depth. Ten times faster and quite a lot cheaper than the current drilling technology.
Shell and Swype have been invested in Hyper Sciences.
