Energy from the Vacuum - Challenging the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics
Description: Over the last 20 years the absolute status of the Second Law has come under increased scrutiny, more than during any other period in its 180-year history. Since the early 1980's, roughly 50 papers representing over 20 challenges have appeared in the refereed scientific literature. In July 2002, the first conference on its status was convened at the University of San Diego, attended by 120 researchers from 25 countries. In 2004, the mainstream scientific journal Entropy published a special edition devoted to Second Law challenges. And, in July 2004, an echo of the first conference was held in Prague, Czech Republic.
The breadth and depth of recent challenges are remarkable. They span three orders of magnitude in temperature, twelve orders of magnitude in size; they are manifest in condensed matter, plasma, gravitational, chemical, and biological physics; they cross classical and quantum mechanical boundaries. Several have strong corroborative experimental support, and laboratory tests attempting bona fide violation are on the horizon. Considered en masse, the Second Law's absolute status can no longer be taken for granted, nor can challenge to it be casually dismissed.
