Re: General Fusion in the news

Why not use a gasket of silicone rubber? This stuff claims to be good up to 700°F. Make it thick enough and it should be able to absorb the several mm of displacement required.

Supposedly he's done it again.

One wishes that Joe would use his PWD and high K effect insights to create a compound that would both form stoichiometrically with high yield and break the record.

It's still concerning that this independent confirmation has a signal struggling to rise above the noise.

Re: effect of Low duty cycle lights on digital imagers.

This video highlights the strobe effect of some cheap LED lights.

I've also noticed that cars with LED taillights seem to flicker when when recorded by dash cams.

Re: Joe Eck hits Tc = 48C, 118 F

I would make a wild guess that 'Materials 5, 6 and 8' are being patented because they can be produced with large volume fractions, if not stoichiometrically.
