A New Domain!

As I have ruminated elsewhere, I don't think it really matters who can fire up their fusor and activate a silver plate in an hour. I also recognize that having that ability reflects a level of seriousness that should not be ignored. in recognition of that achievement, you guys now have your own doma...

Back to Basics

"Like the mythological sword Excalibur, the secret of the Fusor lies frozen in the rock of institutional orthodoxy....when the time is right, the mystery will finally reveal itself, the stone will unlock its secrets, the quiet passion of Philo T. Farnsworth will be re- awakened, and the dawn of a n...

My Visit with Doug

Serves me right for being "in the void" for the past year+, but I have only this moment learned of Doug Coulter's demise. I am reading through the "Re: Life, The Universe, and Everything" thread on his personal 'Coultersmithing' website which started in 2018: http://www.coultersmithing.com/forums/vi...

Re: What's in a name? Verbiage may matter.

Checking in from the void... Frank gave me a heads up on this discussion, he and I will talk later in the week, and then perhaps I'll weigh in. Bus? The only bus I know of is the one that Philo T Farnsworth III (oldest son of TV/Fusor inventor) spoke of, and all he ever said about a bus was "face th...

This is: John David Simnett Thanks Ya know, we don't have a whole lot rules around here, but the ONE rule that has been rigorously enforced for like a decade now is: use your real name. Ple...

Re: "Revese Polarity"

Richard, I'm going to go back to your post from yesterday, because something fundamental is still unclear to me. No counts on neutron counter until polarity reversal. That's one incredibly loaded short sentence that demands further elaboration. For starters: can you articulate what Farnsworth though...

Re: Richard Hull's Attic

These photos are fantastic, Richard. It's really cool to see the very first iterations of the fusor, those bell jar versions. But also sorta confounding to hear that they didn't produce any of fusion. I would like to hear more about the transition from the "electron / multipaction / virtual cathode ...

Re: Fusion pioneers

I've surfed some of the forums enough to realize that nobody on these forums has tried to create a torus-shaped reactor, or anything other than a fusor, at least not that I've come across so far. "Fusion works. All you have to do is go outside at day time or go outside at night and look up; There a...
