I would suggest uploading the original 28MB file to youtube then posting the link to it.

Thank you again Rich for a great time at the 20th anniversary of HEAS. Here a a few photos:

1. Rich at the helm during a record run.

2. My UHMW-moderated neutron counter and scalar at center

3. The readouts from three different neutron counters during the run: Rich's, mine, and a Snoopy.

4. A Stirling Cryocooler demonstration

5. Homemade neutron bubble dosimeters w superheated gas - One of these actually showed some tiny bubbles during the run. Hopefully will be perfected for the next HEAS!

6. A gigantic bismuth crystal, home-grown by TR. The picture doesn't do the coloration justice.

Great to see all the fusioneers again. Kind regards, Eric

Chad, I have corrected the error and added a question mark. I forgot your dad was doing all the photography with 10 different people's cameras.

Eric, I can't thank you enough for the fine images.

To Richard and all at the HEAS 2009 -

Thanks for hosting and sharing with those of us who could not attend. It looked like a great and stimulating weekend.

The Bismuth crystal is particularly impressive. Quite an accomplishment!

Some people photos.

#1 Carl Willis. Nice contrast with the blue and yellow but I can't read the label on the bottle.

#2 Bill Kolb. Signing autographs?

#3 Jon Rosenstiel (right) and a freind of his. Conspiring like in the younger days.

#4 Bill Fain, Eric Stroud, TR. Is that somebody from the government in the background???

Bill Fain is the guy in the background to the left with the suspicious shades. T.R. was without his characteristic glasses following his lasik surgery.

A great shot of Bill Kolb for those who have never seen the author of "Living With Radiation - The First Hundred Years".

What!?....No images of Ashley?!! Just ugly old men....! I think more guys were huddled around her than watched my record breaking fusor run.....Not without good reason though, therefore, I forgive them.

Many thanks for all of your images shared with us Frank.

there were a lot of excellent conversations with other like minded individuals (once again reminding me how little i know about things). i always enjoy attending, it always an educational experiance.

thanks again,
Q
