Re: Question about Fukushima in 2016

Then they died in Fukushima, but not because of the reactor accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Of course I could have phrased all this to be 100% exact but I presumed that people would at least attempt to understand what I was trying to say. Next time, I will write a 10 page pap...

Perhaps you ddon't run into as many Anti-NuPows as I do. They love to try to trip you on things like that.

Re: LENR Is Real

Sorry, what is the connection between "the ERV that made the report" and Penon?
Rossi was talking about "the ERV that made the report", no? What is the issue with Penon?

Poorly written. I still can't figure it is is any better than comparable areal density solid sheets.

Re: LENR Is Real

Hmmm:
Score card:
Proof that LENR is real, pretty solid, though what it is remains something of a mystery.
Proof that Rossi is a fraud, in the eye of the beholder.
Proof that Rossi means LENR, non-existant.

LENR wins by a hair.

Re: Cusp leakage in non-hexahedral configuration

The rounded square magnet shape may be the best compromise, provided the corners abut against each other, not the long sides. This long side paralleling the next side provides to much surface area close to the cusps (within several gyroradii) so ExB losses may become dominate. This is in line with ...
