Sure. I’m happy to work like that. Throw the numbers in, then see what needs modifying…


Treating the numbers I’ve seen as if they went into a regular fusor, I would say; Therefore, I see no reason to think the idea of fast neutrals being the source of the detected fusion is inconsistent with the neutron count results. In no way does that say this is what happens, but only that there isn’t an immediate reason to think it is an unjustified possibility that, therefore, needs to be otherwise controlled for in the WB experiments.
Very nice. I'd have to agree that your idea is within the realm of possibility.
Engineering is the art of making what you want from what you can get at a profit.
