Re: Cube fusor build

Jim, I have have waited to evaluate Jon's data before I answered your question. It would seem that loading to displace gas from the shell and to provide more fuel when hit by a collision or just something coming out of the interstices of the metal then I can by into that. It seems a much harder stre...

Re: Cube fusor build

Either I am not understanding the original data chart or I do not understand the interpretation. I looked through everything again and I am just not getting something here. How can it be anisotropic if measured around the fusor or is it? Is this a two dimensional x,y plot or a one dimensional linear...

Re: Cube fusor build

Ok, so I think I have it. In an earlier post in this thread I mentioned the distance of the detector from the source. It is important because a detector is not a point. It is a volume. Most importantly it has a thickness. For a far field measurement, a half an inch difference between the face of the...

Re: Cube fusor build

Jon, thanks for the measurements. Joe, thanks for the graph. I did the first terms by hand and came up with a 2.3 to 1 estimate for an isotropic radiator and that is right on your plot Joe. Of course it needs to be 1 far away and the theoretical plot does show that. I really need to get good math pr...

Re: Cube fusor build

Richard, apologies if it appeared that I was dissing your post. Not my intent. I don’t have a horse in this race. Just looking for some answers. Hope others ponder this and give there thoughts. As for the loading of deuterium in the walls, I am going to suggest another possible mechanism for why a l...

Re: Cube fusor build

I am a little surprised at the statements here. Isotropic is isotropic be it particle or photon. Of course in the case of a photon, orders of magnitude more are being emitted from a tube of plasma. It is still a statistical game be it emission of a photon or a neutron. My drawing is a series of seve...

Re: Cube fusor build

Great work again Jon! Your follow through is always most excellent! At first I thought I was looking at a Smith chart! I think though that you may have just proven that the neutron production is completely isotropic. Only your precise measurements make this interpretation possible. If you don't mind...

Re: Planet of the humans back up on you tube.

The media and the money behind it are the master manipulators of our society. When energy is the issue, they are are on it. When race is an issue they are on it. When a virus is the issue they are on it. What the NARRATIVE is though is completely different depending upon which outlet you align yours...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

What to do as a world leader or health expert then? Not all masks work. Not all people know how to use a mask properly. Not all people believe there is a virus. Not all people want to have their freedoms infringed on. Not all people want their shops closed. Not all shops want people to not wear mask...

Re: Comet NEOWISE

Here is the comet on the evening of July 18th. It is right in the center of the triangle of stars. A unique perspective on only one day in its path. I am only 3 miles from center city of Pittsburgh so light pollution is a problem. Camera is a Canon 5D Mark IV. Lens is a Canon 500 mm F/4. Exposure wa...
