Fusion Power Becomes Reality
unknown | 2/33/2014 | vanity

Posted on 02/03/2014 7:12:24 AM PST by count-your-change

Today Sandini Research Labs and it's unnamed Swedish research partner announced a major science breakthrough...The sustained production of electricity by hot fusion. They said electricity had been produced for a total of seventeen hours without interruption

Company spokesman, Prof. Olaf Untermeyer-Jurgens, said an entirely approach had been taken using sound and heat but without lasers, to create the Hyper Flux Transfer reaction and promised more news soon.

Hyper Flux Transfer reaction

Doubtless occurring in a flux capacitor

"...an entirely approach had been taken"

A spokesman said that?

If you like your fusion, you can keep your fusion.

Heh!

It might be the translation from Urdu to English loses a lot of the fine meaning.

How much electricity for how much mass?

Net positive energy output? There’ve been other fusion reactors, but they’ve used more electricity to maintain the containment field than they produced in electrical power.

Color me skeptical, but I can’t find anything else on the Internet about any of this. Do you have a source?

Oddly, apart from this post, I could not find any web page that refers to to “Prof. Olaf Untermeyer-Jurgens” nor any that refer to the “Sandini Research Labs.”

You’ll have to read the many technical papers to find out exactly but it appears to be not too mass for all those volts. But first read in my first comment:

(gott chamitt dasa tire) Gottcha mitt da satire? The cold fusion hoopla has become a bore. Time to have a bit of fun with the fellas.

I suppose that we will also have to keep waiting for hot fusion to emerge as a source of endless cheap energy.

Sure. Put your hands on screen of your monitor and wait it to come to you. No getting up, think happy thoughts, chant if that helps. Feeling any links yet?

Need a link for this “claim”. Checked the science sites I frequent and no mention of it. IF sustainable fusion happened, the net should be jumping...it’s not.

As far as a “commercial device” goes...well, I think not. The following link takes you to the National Ignition facility

https://lasers.llnl.gov/

as one can see by the few posted pictures, a working smaller commercially available device is a long long long long way off.

I know you’re just passing along what you found, but sorry, NO SALE!

You have nothing better to do than to jerk people around?

Seriously, you didn’t think there was already enough made up crap on the internet or something?

I understand boredom, but annoying others to combat it is rather selfish.
