Wouldn't the high centripetal acceleration tend to separate the Pb and Li rather than mix them based on the sedimentation principle? That is, wouldn't it act like a centrifuge, separating the elements?

OpenCL. It's cross-platform so runs on both NVidia and AMD architectures.

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

I thought Faraday cages couldn't block static or nearly static magnetic fields. This page over at Princeton seems to confirm my vague recollection: http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Faraday_cage.html . Although without knowing how fast the field is changing, I suppose we can't cal...

Re: Pb-11 Fusion at CNRS Laboratory in France

I wonder if this could be used to study direct conversion technologies and techniques while net gain is still being pursued.

Re: they want to own our bodies now, I guess?

This is just baseless conservative bashing. The bill passed the Arkansas Senate unanimously 35-0. In the House, 9 of the 11 noes were from Republicans. In the initial vote, the only noes were from Republicans. Furthermore, the governor who signed it into law is a Democrat.

Re: NSA and Illusion of Email, Communication Security

The movie "Enemy of the State" url: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120660/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 springs to mind with what is going on. This should frighten one and all, and I say that in all seriousness. Best line from that movie, imo: Brill: The government's been in bed with the entire telecomm...

Re: Muslims calling for the Death of all Athiests.

If the fear of eternal torture or the reward of everlasting life are the only things keeping religious people from being savages, maybe they should re-examine their reasons for being moral. Have you considered the logic of this statement? If the fear of eternal torture or the reward of everlasting ...

My knee jerk response would be to immediately dismiss the arguments you linked, but after having seen similar behavior on this side of the pond I can grudgingly concede that perhaps some of the arguments are plausible. I am not nearly so well informed as to what was going on in England as I am rega...
