Gravity-Powered Irrigation System Replaces Diesel Pump and Saves Rancher $3,500 Per Year

Operating a water pump with the force of gravity may seem like an interesting project for many. Roger Barton, from Ferron, Utah, didn't just dream about it, but put his ingenious mind to work and, with the help of an engineering firm from Redmont he managed to change his diesel pump with a gravity-powered one.

Chunlei Guo's Metal Pushing Water Uphill Without Extra Energy

Chunlei Guo, a researcher from the University of Rochester, along with a team of scientists, have created a slab of metal that can push water uphill, defying gravity, by using the capillary effect. It's the same effect that happens when you put a piece of fabric in a wine glass, for example, and hold it with your hand.
