I wanted to, but I can't figure out a way to cool it passively. I thought maybe if the width of the tube extending from the top widened as it reached the turbine the steam would expand, thusly cool. I have to do some calculations to see realistically how much I could cool it, (PV=nRT), to determine if implementing this would be worth the time. Shouldn't take me too long.

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who can read binary, and those who can't.

But I would have to cool the water first. Because the steam inside is pretty much the same temperature as the liquid water on the outside. And if I had to cool water for a water jacket it would lower my efficiency. If you have any ideas for passive cooling though let me know though.
