Re: A Drastic Alteration in our Thinking is needed.

<t>Increasing the deuterum density by 3 to 5 orders of magnitude might be possible in the fusor without adversely affecting its operation. <br/> <br/> This could be done with a molecular beam. We typically adjust our fusor pressure by adjusting our vacuum valve to compensate for our deuterum leak. S...

Re: The "Drydown Zone" , R&D magazine

<t>There is a chemists technique to remove water from reactors (chemical flasks) and thier contents. It uses a "sparge" gas like nitrogen to help sweep out the unwanted molecules such as water. The ability for water to condense on the wall of a reactor is greatly reduced when a flow of sparge gas is...

A Drastic Alteration in our Thinking is needed.

<t>I have spent hours operating my fusor and varying the operating parameters but I keep coming back to the same conclusion. The efficiency of this design is very poor. In my experience running voltages of greater than 50 kv does increase the efficiency of the fusor but also increases the overall lo...

Mike,

What is your count rate with the tube out of the wax?

Re: AHHHHHHH Re: The theoretical musings continue.

<t>If you ask a chemist if matter can be created or destroyed, he will say no because if you burn something and collect and weigh all of the ashes and gasses that evolve, you will get them all back. Well almost. There is a very, very tiny difference because some of the matter is converted to energy....

AHHHHHHH Re: The theoretical musings continue.

<t>I think you guys are playing it fast and loose here. What is called antimatter is not antigravitational matter, it is anti color charge matter. Color charge is just one more attribute that matter can have besides Coulombic charge. Antimatter, like matter still has positive gravitational attractio...

Re: Feedthrough Modification

<t>If you are just looking for an additional 10KV-20KV more in the rating of the insulator of your current feedthru, you can always add an insulating cap. Much of the hissing and breakdown really begins at sharp edges on the top connector and can make the entire area around it conductive due to ioni...

Re: Hydrogen is a greenhouse gas it seems

<r>My system has a grid tie and runs my meter backward by day and forward by night. I only pay the difference which is usually very low. I only have a modest battery bank that remains fully charged (greatly extending its life) except in times of local power outages.<br/> <br/> I realize that the pho...

Re: Hydrogen is a greenhouse gas it seems

<t>Larry,<br/> <br/> The masses will never get it. How do they think cutting down one of the sources of our oxygen and air purifications systems and buring it to create smoke and carbon dioxide, could ever be considered green? However, if the tree has already fallen and it is cut up and burned in a ...

Re: Hydrogen is a greenhouse gas it seems

<t>Do the calculation starting with coal or natural gas. Burn it to turn it into electricity, transmit it, then use it. See how many watts of energy are expended to cool a 100 watt bulb even with a heat pump operating at its peak efficiency. <br/> <br/> The sun gives us a peak of 1,500 watts per squ...
