Re: What makes the H-bomb so efficient? A: (with some math)

<t>Hi folks:<br/> <br/> Without going into too much detail which I've done in other posts.<br/> Simply remember a H-Bomb only fuses 2% or maybe at best 10% of the fuel load the rest turns into fallout. The longest time of thermonuclear burn is measured in microseconds.<br/> Using an H-Bomb as a heat...

Re: Subcritical Multiplication and Spontaneous Fission in Uranium

<t>Hi Folks:<br/> <br/> Try looking at the Sillard Experiments at Columbia...he used around 500 pounds of regular uranium oxide. It is only a third as effective as the metal ... divide by 3 to get the equivalent weight of metal. So you are talking about 166 lbs of regular U! But depleted U requires ...

Re: Interesting operating session - Fusor IV

<t>Hi Guys:<br/> <br/> The best voltage for pulsed fusors is 10 kv for high neutron yield.<br/> Raise the voltage to 15 kv the neutron count will fall at the same amperage!<br/> Dr Miley verified the effect on a log chart using various amperages at 15kv and 10 kv.<br/> The theory is that the lower t...

Re: 21st Century Energy

Hi Folks:

AG is right on target about how much usable uranium exists.
About 300 years at full tilt production.
Breaders have not been really sucessful.

Happy Fusoring!

Re: 21st Century Energy

<t>Hi Dave:<br/> <br/> All valid points .... I posted this low power steam idea because of the current lack of leadership. By Golly ,they had 30 years of warning but the goverment only acts when it's house is on fire!<br/> I'm afraid like Richard Hull it is a lost cause, the ship is sinking...<br/> ...
