LOOK AT THE FUTURE
July 10, 1964
World's Fair visitors view two of the energy wonders of tomorrow at the Festival of Gas pavilion. In the foreground is a tiny "fuel cell" which mixes gas and air to produce electricity. Currently being designed for use in space vehicles, the fuel cell may soon be an "electric plant" in your basement. Behind the fuel cell is a gas operated turbine, part of a total energy system. A similar turbine is used to provide heat, cooling (air conditioning), and electricity for the gas industry's pavilion at the Fair.
