Now I wonder about "potential energy" stored in a diamond compared to the carbon in coal or the carbon in petrol. I wonder if say we visit a planet such as Mars and want to harvest its energy if it had alot of carbon. To say,
convert the carbon into diamonds and then transport back to Earth.
Another interesting question is to say convert all of the coal and petrol on Earth into diamonds.
But the most interesting thoughts in my mind tonight is the idea of putting DIAMOND DUST into the troposphere or upper atmosphere and we all know how reflective diamonds can be.
For many years now I have been looking for the very best material to reflect enough sunlight to keep Earth cool from global warming. Perhaps diamond dust is the ideal material to do just that.
Transporting them into the upper atmosphere is another problem. And I can see jet airplanes in the apex of their ascent releasing diamond dust. I can envision a rocket releasing diamond dust.
And Diamond dust is of no health risk that I am aware of. If inhaled or injested it is nonharmful and the body excretes it.
Perhaps we can even make the diamond dust such that hot air balloons can
Now I wonder if diamond dust is the best reflector, compared to say aluminum specks.
And diamond dust being carbon would be very lightweight and no problems with diamonds tarnishing or deteriorating while performing their task of sunlight reflection.
I need to post this to sci.materials and sci.engr
