Hi, I have a question. About how big will the modified RTG be? Love the website!
Hey, this is one of the authors. The answer to your question is that it would be really small compared to the one used in space.
Thanks! Love the website. This could be the next new thing for scientists.
Hi! I wanted to know why the RTG has to be so small.
Hi Sandy! I am so glad you asked this great question! I will be working with some other mathematicians to scale the RTG. It has to be realistically small so it will be easier to attach it to a power source. We can't be carrying around a 10 feet piece of technology to attach to a small wire. We have to make the RTG smaller so it will be more convenient for us to take it to other places.
Hey, what does the RTG run on? Sorry if the answer is already on the website.
Hi Melissa! Thank you so much for asking this question! The RTG runs on radioactive waste. The one we are modifying will run on pollution on Earth. This helps decrease poverty
Hi Rikitha! Thank you so much for explaining that to me. The RTG seems very complicated, are you guys sure it's going work on Earth? I am just so curious!😀
