Re: If energy producing fusion occured tomorrow, what would happen?

<t>Noticed that one myself. Not a great defense against it, but I was hoping you'd pick up on it. <br/> <br/> Poverty rate in the US, and china are nearly identical. US is at 12.7%, while china shows 10%. <br/> <br/> Definitions sections says the poverty level is determined by each country, making i...

Re: If energy producing fusion occured tomorrow, what would happen?

<t>Its fark, in his other skin. <br/> The problem (as I see it) is not the existance of corporations, but that they exist as the dominant employeer. Corporations embody long term income, because they hold revenue streams. They make stuff, they sell stuff, they provide a service.. whatever. People do...

Re: The theoretical musings continue.

<t>While I dont agree with the assesment that gravity is as known a entity as electrons (electrons we can observe. We know the basic who and how of electrons, where they occur, and what basic sub-particles compose an electron. None of this can be said of gravity. We understand it in a newtonian sens...

Re: If energy producing fusion occured tomorrow, what would happen?

<t>It doesnt matter how much of this has been given away, at this point none of it is producing. If tomorrow morning someone was able to make a mesh out of carbon nanotubes surrounding micro-threads of platnium or some other superior conductior, they could patent that simple a concept. In short, the...

Re: why just one potential well?

Thanks. I already figured that if the ions didnt go for the sweet spot quickly you'd windup with a less efficent system from the extra grids.

So at this point, the only holy grail for fusors is somehow isolating the ions from the grid, without otherwise impeding their progress?

why just one potential well?

<t>I'm just starting into learning about fusors but I have an amazingly stupid question. <br/> <br/> My basic understanding is that fusors work by creating a deep enough potential well to keep ions ocsilating back and forth through a central area. Add fuel to the center, and if you've gotten your ma...

If energy producing fusion occured tomorrow, what would happen?

<t>US dollar vs Euro<br/> <br/> If fusion happens tomorrow. What changes? From the above link, if you buy into it, within a decade no nation will need the USD in international money markets. If this is true, suddenly we won't be able to carry a trade deficet without crushing our economy. <br/> <br/>...
