 Hybrid Rocket Thesis @ LaunchBase.com (Launch Base)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A hybrid rocket propulsion system is a rocket engine composed of a solid propellant lining a combustion chamber into which a liquid or gaseous propellant is injected so as to undergo a strong exothermic reaction to produce hot gas that is emitted through a De Laval nozzle for propulsive purposes.
In its simplest form a hybrid rocket consists of a pressurised tank full of oxidiser leading into a valve and from there into a combustion chamber lined with a fuel and on into a conventional rocket engine.
The explosive equivalent of hybrid rockets propellant is often taken to be 0, whereas liquids are 10-20% and solids are around 10%.

 AWIC Newsletter: The Wolf-Dog Hybrid
A wolf hybrid is the offspring of a breeding between a wolf (Canis lupus) and a dog (Canis familiaris).
In some hybrids, the timidity of the wolf may be replaced by the aggressiveness of the dog, while the predatory contribution from the wolf ancestry may remain relatively intact.
In hybrids, where the aggressive nature of the dog may be coupled with an absence of the wolf's aggressive restraint, serious injury or even death to a human can result during a dominance challenge.

 Honda Worldwide | August 24, 2004 "Honda Develops Hybrid Scooter Prototype"
Thanks to a compact power system and a rechargeable nickel hydrogen battery located under the front cowl, the hybrid scooter is about the same size as the Dio Z4, a standard-size 50cc scooter, and is only 10 kg heavier.
To make the most efficient use of energy, the hybrid system charges the battery during deceleration and whenever possible and utilizes this power when higher output is required.
These advanced features allow the hybrid scooter to achieve 1.6 times the fuel economy of the Dio Z4 (when riding on flat ground at 30 km/h) and to produce 37% less carbon dioxide.

 Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles
As the term suggests, plug-in hybrids - which look and perform much like "regular" cars - can be plugged in to a 120-volt outlet (for instance each night at home, or during the workday at a parking garage) and charged.
Plug-ins run on the stored energy for much of a typical day's driving - depending on the size of the battery up to 60 miles per charge, far beyond the commute of an average American - and when the charge is used up, automatically keep running on the fuel in the fuel tank.
The plug-in hybrid drive system is compatible with all vehicle models and does not entail any sacrifice of vehicle performance or driver amenities.

 Town Car: A Hybrid-Electric Car
Initially, the hybrid was envisioned as essentially a battery-electric vehicle with an on-board heat-engine-powered generator (genset) to extend the range.
This implied that the genset would be of minimal output in order to bias the system toward battery-electric power and thereby gain the efficiency of using wall-plug electricity.
For more information on electric vehicles and hybrid system control strategy, see "Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: An Overview of the Benefits, Challenges, and Technologies.
