Re: Taylor Wilson in Forbes

<r>>Worrying about a dump of 100,000 year half-life nuclear waste is irrelevant if mankind as we know it dies out within 10,000 years.<br/> <br/> Ironically exactly such a dump is causing trouble over here right now. It’s a salt dome that was used to dump nuclear waste. Water is leaking in…<br/> Wat...

Re: Taylor Wilson in Forbes

<t>Germany is not like the US. There are obviously a lot of differences between the politics of both countries. This trendy thing started more than 30 years ago...<br/> The nuclear power plants were intended to be closed down before the Fukushima incident happened. <br/> <br/> >The perceptions are f...

Re: Nuclear battery charging via Fusor?

<t>Hello,<br/> It’s somewhat off topic but I think solar power is by far the most feasible method on the mars. Those rovers did/do a great job and worked much longer than expected. You can place a solar panel nearly everywhere on this planet especially if from time to time some intelligent being sho...

Re: Nuclear Bomb Detector

<t>Hello,<br/> judging from the electronic parts (actually there is an IC as well as modern trimmers) I don't think it's older than 25 years. Those circuit boards remind me of my ALC60X argon laser PSU. Maybe some of parts are older. (low budget => recycling?)<br/> <br/> So I think it's a highly int...

Re: Circulation patterns on the chamber walls

I think its sputtered material too but I want to add that you can see similar but more colourful patterns if you torture your fusor with some oxygen.

I used to make gifts for friends by placing copper-coins inside my fusor and operating it with plain air.

Re: ICP coil first test

<r>Hi<br/> I did some little tests with tube based hf oscillators (plasma tweeter style). <br/> One can be seen here: <URL url="http://www.adrian-homelab.de/hfgu29.html">http://www.adrian-homelab.de/hfgu29.html</URL><br/> I will improve it in the next 2 weeks and I already began building an oscillat...

Re: Archived - The Five Minute Fusor

<t>Ah a copper halide laser.<br/> Please report about this project. I build a metal vapour laser (lead, manganese and a few other metals) on my own but it's not yet finished as can be seen on the first picture.<br/> I also got two BeO tubes (the milky stuff on picture 2). I will use at least one of ...
