I think saturday evening is at great time for good and honest men with good intentions.

In vino veritas.

If there are other knowledgeable men who agrees with you, your machine will be built. If it works, you will become a very rich.

Skål!

Are those numbers of any significance?
The FRC confinement times are improved by factors 2 to 4, and the plasma lifetimes are extended from 1 to up to 4 ms.

Very cool! Great find! Thanks for sharing!
I cannot say I understand much of it.

Any qualified comments? I guess there is no common agreement that this is the way, the truth and the life.

Otherwise there would be ample resources directed to this.

Some FPs (including CsF) get distilled out. The carrier salt gets distilled out. The rest of the FPs remain behind in the still. Further seperation may occur. No they don't. Have done some reading up on it. See page 590 in this document: www.energyfromthorium.com/pdf/FFR_chap12.pdf "Quite high burn...

Seems to me that if it won't come out in one of the reprocessing steps like most of the other elements it is because it is VERY stable in the salt solution. If so, won't it just turn to rock when it cools? A rock very soluble in water then. If I make a guess: You should be better of in the LFTR. No...

Questions on potential cesium discharges in the LFTR

I have been reading up all little on the liquid flouride reactor. The transuranics are to be removed by continuously distilling a fraction of the circulating liquid fuel stream. Noble gasses and iodine will be taken away by letting them evaporate from the hot fuel in a spray chamber. And U233 breede...

Someone with the proper bakground daring to have an opinion on this? Josephchikva perhabs? May I guess that the physics in this case does not allow any predictions of high probability? It, seemingly, rarely does in the case of devices for production of fusion energy. I googled magnetized inertia fus...
