Re: Non vacuum chamber design possible ?

Mean Free Path is part of the puzzle I think your missing Nanos.

There needs to be space for ions to accelerate without obstruction.

Find a long enough mean free path outside a vacuum and you have your answer.

Re: copper plating tanks

Doug,
Nice work. I am also curious how you cut those bottles. In the past I've attempted this and ended up with migrating cracks from the cut edge.

Re: Oscillations of Photosynthesis

Nature often finds a way.

One of the first life forms to successfully recolonize a nuclear test site where Tumbleweeds. Their DNA tended to be tempered to excess radiation. It makes one wonder, what might be evolving in radon filled mines.

Re: RF induced spherical fusor ( Berkeley Lab )

<t>If we consider the target, it should contain an internal pressure from the D loading. Also as the voltage is increased the "sea" of electrons create additional density.

Re: Mössbauer spectroscopy

Sure enough, it's right there in the manual. That will be a superb setup when it comes online.
