Re: Answer keys w/ explanation?

I always despised this notation, but it creeps into a lot of scientific math.... sec^-1 means " per sec" and cm^-3 means "per cubic centimeter"....Sadly, after a while you get used to it.

Re: Used 37" cyclotron on craigslist

There is more important stuff missing than is there. A great little fixer-upper for the guy who has the $100,000 + and the time to bring it back to life.

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

P + B11 is a dream that no one is realistically working on. We can't even do the easiest of all fusions T + D and make it go. Not much to say for ITER either. It is a giant money pit headed for failure with plenty of good and viable excuses when it doesn't pan out, but there is always that new thing...

Re: VACUUM CHAMBER

Glass and any form of plastic vessel will not support fusion work.

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

We are back to the fact that no one has yet produced a single watt of usable electricity by the fusion process. Fission distributed electrical energy to light and power the town of Arco, Idaho, 7 or 8 years after the first atom bomb was exploded at trinity. H-bomb to fusion electricity languishes 62...

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

We have had this discussion many times here in the past. You put in 1000 watts to a fusor and get out 10 microwatts of fusion energy. No energy is lost, only gained! The 1000watts plus the 10 microwatts of fusion. Thus, we have output 1000.000001 watts of heat energy. What are we seeking to do with ...

Re: Andrew Seltzman's for sale list updated (3/8/2018)

It would, indeed, be a shame to have to break up a nice tested system like this. I hope you can sell it complete.

Re: Mark3 operation 3e-4 torr / quad ion source @ -40kV, 1mA-9mA

Fabulous upgrade Andrew!! One of the better systems out there and a fusioneer that has been around a while. Thanks for the upgrade. I am envious of the valved off 1000+ second hold to about 50 microns. I am at 100 microns after about 360 seconds, but I have operated like this for about 9 years now. ...
