a few brief lines to introduce this thread: i have never heard 'mr. spock' or 'yoda' make a statement like 'i don't believe that' or 'this is impossible'.. now, why name this thread 'mr. spock&yoda's thread'? the answer is simple: the two names are figurative; the one stands for pure non-judgmental knowledge, the other one for wisdom; both depend on one another, in order to provide you the tools you need for the development of your higher self. it is the yin and yang that forms a perfect circle.
i remember when i got my first astro-science book('our solar system and the universe' from time life), i was in 1st grade; i sat down with the wonderful being that is my mom after reading a good portion of it, pointed to the chapter with quasars depicted and said 'wow, how is all this possible?' she replied:"the fact that we are discussing it shows that it IS possible and probably does exist, all that is has a name and purpose, it's up to us to find out about it.."
there's a lot of crazy stuff out there, it's about time we become familiar with. open-mindedness as well as creativity opposes insecurity and a narrow sight. einstein said: 'there's two things that are infinite, the universe and human stupidity'..i tend to agree and disagree at the same time. it's definitely an interesting time to be alive, get creative, post and most important: stay open-minded with a good portion of skepticism, of course
*what he was trying to demonstrate is a s.c. 'cold fusion' apparatus; in this case creating 'bona fide'-non-net-output fusion of Deuterium(heavy water; 1p+1n+1e- Hydrogen atom; regular H has only 1p+1e-); -the central claim of cold fusion adherents is that a nuclear reaction (fusion of deuterium) can be initiated and maintained in an electrochemical apparatus not much different from the setup used to demonstrate the breakdown of water into hydrogen and oxygen; -on an important note:Fusion as a such, does not primarily generate or require radioactive mat'l; it does, however, create an intermediate 'fueling' by-product, called 'Tritium'(the 3rd derivative of Hydrogenium), which is somewhat emissive; which...in turn, can be controlled by a suitable design and materials(the 'plastics' and chemicals that are mentioned in a following quote);
The CFR project is a High Temperature Plasma Electrolysis fully based on the Tadahiko Mizuno experiment from the university of Hokkaido in Japan. This is a very interesting experiment and its implication can be a real breakthrough in the field of New and Clean energy source..
The first report on "cold fusion," presented in 1989 by Martin Fleishmann and Stanley Pons, was a global scientific sensation. Fusion is the energy source of the sun and the stars. Scientists had been striving for years to tap that power on Earth to produce electricity from an abundant fuel called deuterium that can be extracted from seawater. Everyone thought that it would require a sophisticated new genre of nuclear reactors able to withstand temperatures of tens of millions of degrees Fahrenheit.
Pons and Fleishmann, however, claimed achieving nuclear fusion at comparatively "cold" room temperatures — in a simple tabletop laboratory device termed an electrolytic cell.
In the new study, Mosier-Boss and colleagues inserted an electrode composed of nickel or gold wire into a solution of palladium chloride mixed with deuterium or "heavy water" in a process called co-deposition. A single atom of deuterium contains one neutron and one proton in its nucleus.
Researchers passed electric current through the solution, causing a reaction within seconds. The scientists then used a special plastic, CR-39, to capture and track any high-energy particles that may have been emitted during reactions, including any neutrons emitted during the fusion of deuterium atoms.
(what that means in all its simplicity-is nearly free energy, which explains once again-the true reason why it has been debunked 20 yrs ago, and barely funded in its research, ever since; however, the(globalist-bureaucrats) won't be able to stop all those crazy smartypants-hobbyists from building 'mini-nuke-gen's' in their dad's garage; ppl are striving for freedom and independence..);p
-there is a principal difference between FUSION(combining nuclei of lighter elements, such as H, Deuterium, 2He) and FISSION(splitting nuclei of more heavy elements, such as 92U, 86Rn); here's a link for a brief and simple breakdown: www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-...and-fusion.htm
Becchetti's piece did, however, also somewhat confound facts in a way that exaggerated the import of the new work. He indicated that existing methods require either megavolt accelerators to fuse deuterium or "a special radioactive tritium (t) target and hence government licensing." In fact, deuterium fusion reactions can be easily achieved using a few tens of thousands of volts. This has been well demonstrated, even by amateur scientists
*the sun conducts 'fusion' based on pressure, btw, rather than 'electricity-based:
Naturally-occurring nuclear fusion at the core of the sun is possible because of the massive pressure exerted by the sun’s forces of gravity.
-uh oh, what does that mean..now one needs to build a 'gravity-multiplier' device, or would a centrifuge be sufficient enough? however, it is NOT recommended to build your own mini-nuke (if u don't kn what yer doing)!
