Eureka!

Eureka! How Archimedes and his 2,000-year-old invention will help provide green energy | Mail Online: "A device invented more than 2,000 years ago by Archimedes has found a 21st century use - generating 'green' electricity.

A crumbling 99-year-old hydroelectric plant in the Yorkshire Dales will come out of retirement thanks to the Ancient Greek's genius.

Key to the English Heritage project is the adaptation of Archimedean screws to operate turbines."
