Re: Missing photos

I went to the high voltage forum...FAQs..... and clicked on everyone of my original FAQs. I right clicked on the picture link and opened link in new tab. Clicking on the new tab, it still says"information not available". I connect to fusor.net via google. Doesn't work using microsoft edge to sign in...

Re: Is this a possible way to generate energy by fusor?

The laws of physics rule with a steel fist. You can't break these laws. No cops are needed. They are watched over by the universe and are there to stop you from breaking the law. The Carnot cycle is under the big protective umbrella of the laws of thermodynamics. Don Lancaster said it best....." it'...

Re: D-D fusion in palladium electrodes

Of course, I would use whatever voltage it takes to get results. The paper was interesting and the pulsed action was reminiscent of a very early discussion related to hydrogen thyratron pulsed fusion in the fusor, circa 2002. What's old is new again. Look at the stellarator.

Re: D-D fusion in palladium electrodes

I and one of two others have pushed for palladium cathodes for some time. I might work this into fusor V which I hope to work up after HEAS 30 in a month or so. I have the wire on hand.

Re: Local geographic gamma counting- how is your soil?

I did a search of the literature and came up with an amazing item. As 90% of the thorium here is in Monazite and all monazite tends to form in 3 distinct belts from Georgia thru Virginia, I submit two maps that stunned me. Richmond is located at the exact juncture or collision of two of these belts!...

Re: My fusor progress

An obvious father-son project.
I was a little apprehensive about the unmounted turbo.... praying he didn't bump it while running.
Handling those gaskets and seals with the bare hands could have cost him some vacuum depth............
Good stuff in the system to be sure. Wish I had it.

After reading what Mark pointed to above and understanding what you have read..........The answer is obviously, no....

Re: The 30th year HEAS event notice and invitation


Heads Up!!
..... It seems we will have a film crew at HEAS working on a story related to the fusor. They will be from CNN (Turner Broadcasting) for their "Big Story" segment.
You may be questioned and photographed. It is not all about me or the fusor, but fusioneers in general.

Re: Inquiry on a primitive neutron detector.

Like I say...make a fusor do as you say and report back to us. The proof is always in the pudding. I think Jon Rosenstiel did this many years back; it worked. Just do it. Sadly, Jon's fabulous images are now missing from his original post 16 years ago. https://fusor.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=77...

Re: Local geographic gamma counting- how is your soil?

Jon, That Amelia Co. sand probably did not come from a river, but a stream running on a farm about 30 miles west of Richmond and just west of Amelia Courthouse in the town of Amelia. We have worked it for some time now for the monazite sand. Most of the local collectors are myself, T.R. Leary, Tim R...
