Re: Fusor theory variant on arxiv.. EV Tsiper

Turbo's are extremely complex electrical and mechanical devices that are very delicate; I've rebuilt a few fan blade systems after debris (bolts) have fallen in. For me, the worse aspect is the electronic sections since they are complex and not easy to fix - and even with schematics the over-riding ...

Re: Restoration pfeiffer duo 004

Very impressive and I have little doubt that will all make an excellent vacuum system. You have the key part for the start of any fusor system there. You improvise like a real pro! After out gassing (both the oil and your vacuum system), more than likely after running for awhile the system will go u...

Re: Fusor theory variant on arxiv.. EV Tsiper

Besides providing an introduction and some explaination when posting others work it would best to review papers before posting so an extremely flawed ones like this are not posted. Still, I should have checked the aurthor vs. poster. I'll delete my post since it is both irrelavent and inappropriate.

Re: Fusor theory variant on arxiv.. EV Tsiper

First, I am treating your paper as a serious attempt to explain what your idea/goal is. Please do not take my questions as saying your idea isn't correct or fessible. That, however, is the problem I am facing with many aspects of the paper and I'd like you to better clarify the issues I am noting. F...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Frank is correct (and well worth reading) in that even if zero CO2 emmissions were achieved right now, the effect of human induced global warming - exceeding a 2 C increase in average world yearly temp - is now baked in; that of course, means billions of people will lose the area's they currently ne...

Re: Diy linear accelerator

Well, rather than make you search through my far too many posts on the subject (I really bored everyone on that score; sorry) here is a link to pics of the device - it is fairly big and there are a number of pics: https://fusor.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=9359&p=63240&hilit=linear+accelerator#p63...

Re: Research facility construction

Nathan, hello and thanks for your previous work and posts. I have almost two weeks before the supplies will be delivered; it will be dwarfed by John's impressive facility. It will only be 10 by 12, with 7 ft. ceilings. As for my thesis research, some aspects are proprietary (for obvious reasons) but...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

wow; I agree - my massive error that invalidates all points (including my support for nuclear, I guess) because it is the DOE that does the free research, not NRC. So glad we cleared up my error of getting the correct specialized gov agency. I too will not waste your or my time on this pointless sid...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

We are now way off topic but my point was hardly a grossly mischaracterize nor did I ever say in that post at all nor imply that the nuclear fuel enrichment (or fuel) was 'free' or so heavily subsidized that it is mostly free - in truth, do try putting a price tag on the real cost of the absoultly c...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Coal and oil are both heavily subsidized - tax breaks and many write offs (like direct payments via the taxpayer to refineries to increase kersone production for jet fuel) and the taxpayer often picks up many healthcare costs by bankrupted energy companies and waste disposal costs left from mines an...
