Maybe you've never been at the wheel of a bugatti but check out that spresso machine, that's a steam ngine right there.
Read on to discover what thiopia, and the clipse of 1961, have to do with espresso.
STORY OF THE ESPRESSO MACHINE
Just to clarify, the machine most of us are familiar with sit on a stovetop, but that's powered by fire too. Take the Corona Carnot challenge: DIY musical moka pot--this one plays the Italian anthem but it could be tweaked to play anything..can you do it? (Interestingly, the addition of the music mechanism raises the unit price by about $40.)
CARNOT AS IF GOD LECTURE
THERMODYNAMICS COURSE BY ISRAEL URIELI (an apropos name)
A COURSE WHICH RIFFED OFF OF URIELI'S BUT IS NOT BEING UPDATED
recommend this lecture which also touches on how the scientific spin on things which gained increasing ground in the second half of the second millenium, while it ridiculed religion and belief, elevated science to the status of "legend" or "god" as if the scientists were all priests and their accomplishments mystical. (for Christians, Jesus warned a French nun that the bloody French revolution was coming if the kings didn't listen....well, to quote Don McLean, they were not listening, they did not know how. Perhaps they'll listen now. That's why here at Engelblau our motto is: LISTEN!) The video is in French but Carnot also wrote in French so it's on point in that sense. If we find one similar in English we'll list it here.
