Colliding vortex rings

hey all,

Its been a long time since I posted, but this video Two Colliding Vortexes (Smarter Every Day) made me think of people working in alternative fusion research, and this site. I wondered if it had any relation to the behaviour of fusionable plasmas.

cheers -ben

Seriously, this would change so much in design and application criteria it is mind boggling. No doubt about that. I am very curious to see if someone will test this in a lab under Johan supervision if possible. I have been looking for such a person for nearly 7 years now. The "term" super...

Which leaves the question, how hard is it to sneak a thumb drive into a nuke plant. Once inside it would only take about 5 minutes connection to an unattended computer, (assuming it was deliberate), and it would spread from there. You don't need to risk 5 minutes of suspicious computer activity, or...

Stuxnet is merely the worm that was detected, who knows if there aren't others infecting more than just the centrifuges. Very true. You don't know what you don't know. Its a bit like being unable to prove a program is bug free. You can never PROVE you computer is virus free, which is why I used to ...

ABB says its the first commercial use- 1954. Wiki has the Russians using HVDC in WW2. Regarless the huge difference in transmission loss, 2 conductor instead of 3, both solar and wind generate in DC- makes HVDC first choice in bulk transmission. Thanks, I hadn't heard about the Russian reference. I...
