Re: NIF sailing forward.

<t>I am sure that if man ever does fusion in a manner which can be turned into practical power, we will be stunned at the simplicity. I am already stunned at how easy it is to do period, albeit inefficiently. (our fusors)<br/> <br/> In the saga of the nuclear bomb and such, Teller has just about the...

Re: NIF sailing forward.

<t>I feel so sorry for those qualified and bright folks caught up in the NIF web of obfuscation. <br/> <br/> 96 Giant lasers and 500 lb optical triplers that have never been tested or built are being ordered in quantity from manufacturers who have never manufactured them before. These are among some...

Re: digital cameras: a Question

<t>Digital cameras can be had from $100.00 to $3,000.00<br/> <br/> You should make sure that the camera you choose can focus manually and not only automatically.<br/> <br/> Resolution beyond 640X480 is just not necessary. Color is always going to be mis-represented. (shifted)<br/> <br/> I use the So...

Re: Beryllium Insulator Gasket

The base is chrome plated brass. I machined off the base leaving the skirt. I then machined open a 2.75 conflat to accept the skirt and then silver soldered the two together using non-cadmium based silver solder.

Re: GRAVITY? Ripples in space or ghost particles.

<t>Dave is correct. The rubber sheet and depressions are just ways we can mentally view gravity effects easily. It is a mental construct and has no more ties to reality than do the imagined electrical or magnetic field lines so often referred to in electrodynamics.<br/> <br/> The problem occurs when...

Re: Pulsed Fusor #13 Site Construction

Good luck Larry. I know you'll keep us updated and I will move you from the assembling parts crew to the plasma club once you are there.

Re: Fusor wins big at local science fair

<t>Great work ADAM!! I am happy for your resounding success at the fair. I will look forward to you future reports.<br/> <br/> I know how heady such a conference and gathering can be. Mine was in 1959 at Indianapolis with a huge convention of American Rocketeers. (The stainless steel 100 lb plus roc...

GRAVITY? Ripples in space or ghost particles.

<t>I have been involved in this area for a while via the Electric Spacecraft Journal connection with my good friend Charles Yost.<br/> <br/> After a lot of work and even more thought, I have come to a simple and rather final conclusion. Based on experiments where any form of electrostatic operations...

Re: NIM Scaler Questions

<t>There are two ways to get at the counts from a detector.<br/> <br/> 1. Analog meter.....This integrates the incoming pulses and moves a needle up scale to indicate an INSTANTANEUOS RATE of incoming pulses. (pulses per unit time)<br/> <br/> Traditionally, this is readout in CPM (counts per minute)...
