Re: Atom Smasher

Or just a few grams of pure metal in the very center of the inner grid being suspended by a ceramic feed through?

Re: Atom Smasher

I was planning to do that, I originally was going to try to pull a nuclear boy scout but as it is a lot more dangerous and illegal, this is a much better approach to have both fusion and fission, especially in a science fair style setting. Would it be possible to make a inner grid out of Uranium Met...

Re: Atom Smasher

I was just doing a little thinking here and there while waiting for my final parts, I thought I might ask your opinions on it, this was more of a question than a actual suggestion/project.

Re: Capacitor

Thank you, this was very informative, lastly should I connect the grounding wire that connects to the outer chamber, to the pin where I connect the 120v plug grounding wire, or just a screw hole for mounting the case?

Capacitor

I have a 15kv 30ma NST, after being rectified with four 20kv 30ma diodes, would it be better to add a bank of 12 homemade capacitors - http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-Tesla-Coil/step5/Build-the-Capacitors/ Or to buy a real capacitor, if this is the right route what should the specific...

Re: Atom Smasher

In his books he describes it much further, do not take him as a liar, he is just saying "Want to know more, buy my book"

Re: Atom Smasher

He is the author of many good books on quantum physics. A Stephen Hawking of physics if you will (except he actually has real data).

Re: Atom Smasher

Obviously on a seriously reduced scale, actually I was thinking about small electronics projects that I could do to further my knowldge of the subject. Do you know any cheap (<50) projects that are fun and somewhat difficult?

Atom Smasher

I was thinking about making an atom smasher as a cheap little project while I look for a few investors to keep my fusor going (funds almost gone). I was wondering if anyone here has created one.
