    Hmm id be more convinced if that was Ohio state University. Wasnt it an Ohio court back in 19th century tried to declare Pi to be 3.2 ?

    I think there's a pretty dramatic source of energy that we aren't too far away from tapping. Something as dramatic as the water engine had it actually worked, which it didn't.

    But I could be wrong.

    There is, fusion. Huge leap forwards in the last year, Several governments are now convinced enough to plough a few billion into a prototype commercial fusion torus. Ive posted threads about the advances, we'll have fusion power in 5 to 8 years.

    let me know when somebody invents a perpetual motion machine that really works.


    it will require a whole new look at physics as we know it today.

    Well, rounded off pi is 3.2.

    My entire life we've been going to get fusion power .... pretty soon, almost there.

    I don't know if you've seen this, but if not it is an interesting read about what needs to be done after a fusion reaction is initiated and maintained.

    And look at this:

    Fusion energy has the potential to supply safe, clean, and nearly limitless power. Although fusion reactions can occur for light nuclei weighting less than iron, most elements will not fuse unless they are in the interior of a star. To create burning plasmas in experimental fusion power reactors such as tokamaks and stellarators, scientists seek a fuel that is relatively easy to produce, store, and bring to fusion. The current best bet for fusion reactors is deuterium-tritium fuel. This fuel reaches fusion conditions at lower temperatures compared to other elements and releases more energy than other fusion reactions.

    Deuterium and tritium are isotopes of hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe.

    You see the big lie that's not exactly a lie I'm sure.

    You see the big lie that's not exactly a lie I'm sure.
    And if you had been following all the posts ive been making you'd know we've cracked most of the issues, for example

    - Using AI to control the magnetic field
    - using superconducting magnets to get massive magentic fields
    - using high plasma pressure to give lower intiation temperature
    - the massive mistake of lining the torus with graphite. It needs to be tungsten
    - bigger is better, and easier to intiate and control.

    Intiation temperature has now been routinely achieved, in multiple machines, the problem now is the current devices cannot sustin the power outpout more than 5 seconds - JET, the torus at CERN, can run with an energy profit for its max operating for 15 seconds, any more and the entire machine melts, This is why Governments are now ploughing billions into a whole new raft of prototype commercial machines.

    I g'tee we'll have fusion power commercially in 5 to 8 years. Ive been following this tech for 30 years. We are galaxies ahead since then.


    That first article is 2017, its irrelevant. Its nonsense. The technology has made massive leads forward in the last two years, even a 2020 article is now out of date and incorrect.

    I haven't been following you. I only got here a couple of weeks ago.

    You displayed all your knowledge but didn't address this:

    https://www.energy.gov/science/doe-e...n-reactor-fuel

    You see the big lie that's not exactly a lie I'm sure.

    Try again.

    I question the idea of turning over the management of fusion power to AI.

    True.
