Re: Constructing Energy Efficient Dwellings

<t>I came across a cunning plan for a fridge that is claimed to use only 10% of the power of a conventional fridge recently.<br/> <br/> What you do is take a chest freezer, the type with a lid on top, and simply modify its thremostat so that it stays above feezing (about 4°C). <br/> <br/> The combin...

Re: Ion guns and thick targets.

<t>Hi Larry,<br/> <br/> it sounds like you've been duplicating some target fusion experiments done at the Uni. Wisconsin. <br/> <br/> I've posted about it in the fusion theory forum, but the short of it is, that it seems like that embedded target fusion is important even within a standard fusor.<br/...

Where in the fusor does fusion actually occur.

<r>Hi all,<br/> <br/> I was recently browsing the Uni. of Wisconson fusion site and came across this PhD thesis.<br/> <br/> <URL url="http://fti.neep.wisc.edu/FTI/pdf/fdm1226.pdf">http://fti.neep.wisc.edu/FTI/pdf/fdm1226.pdf</URL><br/> <br/> I've only had time to quickly scan through this thesis, bu...

Canberra 35 MCA data logger/post processing program

<r>This is a data logging / post processing program I originally wrote for Jon Rosentiel's Canberra 35 MCA (he's tested it and seems to like it <E>;-)</E> ). Hopefully other people will find it useful as well.<br/> <br/> It can read data directly from the MCA over the serial port, or read a raw data...

Re: Canberra 35+ MCA, data output to PC

I have finally gotten around to posting the program I wrote for Jon to the useful files section.

He's tested it and seems to like it ;-)

Re: Canberra 35+ MCA, data output to PC

If you can send me a sample of the output, I'll see if I can rough out a program that will read the serial port and dump the results to an Excel compatible file.

Re: Nuclear Fission Reactor in the Earth's Core

<t>The authors theories on fuiosn initiation in stars certainly leads to a chicken and egg situation. But if the observation that density is simply dependent on atomic number holds up under the conditons of a stars core, then the biggest lump of metal in the solar system must be in the center of the...

Another Couple of Fusion articles

<r>A press release from Sandia, apparently they have managed to produce neutorns using their Z machine and a pulsed power fusion scheme.<br/> <br/> <URL url="http://www.sandia.gov/news-center/news-releases/2003/nuclear-power/Zneutrons.html"><LINK_TEXT text="http://www.sandia.gov/news-center/news- .....
