Re: Fusor V Chamber

Well, that solves that mystery...

I was wondering why I was seeing all these posts and images from 2010 when you'd just started talking about F-V recently. Now I get it.

That's some paperweight you had going there.

Re: Interesting Plasma

Ugly? Who says?

I think whatever has function has beauty, regardless the aesthetic qualities, which are all subjective anyway.

The more novel approaches to this science we can encourage, the better,

And if it works, it's beautiful.

Re: Senior users, Admins and Moderator - help us make repairs

Over the next few weeks/months, I am going to more actively monitor the site than I have in the recent past, and as I see posts rising in the 'Active Topics' listings that have missing images, I'll reach out to the original post-ers and ask that they help us with the restoration of the disappeared i...

Re: Neptunium's fusor progress

Vince, I was poking around in the forums this evening and just discovered that the images from your first posts in this thread are among those that got disappeared when our previous ISP mangled the site before we moved it. If it's not too much trouble and assuming you still have access to the images...

Re: putt-putt boat

Hey Richard, just seeing this thread for the first time...

That "putt putt boat" looks vaguely familiar. I think there may have been one in my bathtub, too.

Re: Sigh...

This story showed up in my Google Alerts a few days ago and I was tempted to post it as Andrew has, but wasn't quite sure what to make of it and held off. And I wondered about that steam rising from the system, too. Nice to find out what exactly that is. I still think it's useful to get kids interes...

Re: FAQ - Fusor Construction Journey in images from the beginning #5

This stuff is great, Richard,

It shows a new visitor precisely what skill sets go into assembling a fusor. It's also great for the permanent record we're compiling here.

Thanks for taking the time that went into these posts.

Re: I want to help fix fusor.net!! (join up listing)

If anybody wants to sign up for this mission, great, we might still need some help but first... For once we've got some good news about all this: after about 2 hours of digital spelunking this afternoon, we have finally found a trove of image files from one of the earlier iterations of the fusor.net...

Fusion: "When Not If"

Like there is a difference. So maybe some of you have picked up on the recent kerfuffle re: the UK's Boris Johnson promising to deliver electricity from fusion... one of these days. Here's a bit of recent coverage, which reflects the typically vague nature of the promise and the attempts to encapsul...
