Re: Archived - Fusor progress, info & photos

<t>Someone once before asked if this company was a good one to buy from. The response was quite clear that this is not a reputable or even competent company to buy from. Omitting the various stolen pictures lining his website (which by the way changes almost monthly) of other peoples fusors the qual...

Re: FAQ: Quick fusion factoids

<t>I'll vouch for Carl Greninger, Jake Helca and David Housley.<br/> <br/> They have made a very professional setup with a great degree of transparency which as a result is very appealing to the uninformed and regulatory agencies. I've had the fortune of witnessing several of their neutron runs firs...

Re: Molybdenum Activation From Hell - 18MeV Clinac

<r>An update on the activity, it's been 66-hours (1 half-life) since the activation and it's indeed gone down by about half. I feel compelled to mention that for all the previous videos I left the plastic cover the coin came in on which is acting as a bit of a shield to the Mo99 beta decay.<br/> <br...

Re: Molybdenum Activation From Hell - 18MeV Clinac

<t>Thank you Carl, I'll definitely take you up on your offer and send you a fresh piece when next I zap it - I really need to get my hands on a HPGe setup at some point.<br/> <br/> In regards to Deuterium/Beryllium/Uranium neutron/photoneutron amplification, a little hybrid neutron-howitzer is high ...

Molybdenum Activation From Hell - 18MeV Clinac

<r>Took an hour out of this evening to activate an ounce of Molybdenum with an 18MeV Varian Clinac in photon mode. There were some shorter-lived products (notably Mo101 15-minutes) accounting for the greater activity within the first hour, however, I was more interested in the thermal neutron absorp...

Re: Nah...

Carl,

As you're the voice of reason, I defer to you - good enough for me.

Re: Banhammer.

Rich,

He's obviously a crank and fully out of touch with reality, at what point do we stop entertaining this garbage and send it to the trash then?

Banhammer.

All the less than subtle hints ignored, basic physics cast-out and crackpottery fully embraced.

I petition for this imbecile's ban, and the removal of all the trite he's posted.

Fusor.net is not in need of pest-control, it's in need of a damn bug-bomb.
