Towers Produce Clean Drinking Water From Thin Air
It would seem humans could AT LEAST have clean drinking water, where having such is difficult or nearly impossible. This technology aims to solve that, and let’s hope it does.
"The towers have a 9m tall bamboo or juncus frame holding up a plastic mesh net. As the temperature falls during the night water condenses onto the net and rolls down to a reservoir at the bottom of the tower. Where the beetle draws just a few life-giving drops from the Namib fog, the much larger surface area of the nets allows a 100l a night to collect under ideal conditions. Mesh is used, rather than a solid surface, so that air can circulate, bringing in ever more water."
It still amazes me that we’ve literally gone to the Moon, and Mars, and have (at least in most of the West) the entire database of knowledge at our finger tips, and yet there are people who still can not get clean water.
