They used to be fairly common, back in the day I always had a automotive starter or alternator fixed/rebuilt at shops like these.

Alchemist I should have been more specific, electric door locks. A well documented, well known early problem. All Delorean fans know that. Tom, I was refering to someone who drove by EMC2, and saw thru the open door, a large LN2 dewer- IIRC 4-6 ft tall. Which of course fueled speculation that WB-8 s...

Is that in regard to Riders thoughts that ions pass thru the center VS Chacons thought that ions pass thru a broader center region?

Thanks Ladajo, SO if EMC2 is building- installing new E-guns, because of an anomoly, maybe thermalization isnt at a problematic level? Is it possible the old E-gun placement effected a process in the outter regions? Annealing? If so is the solution, slightly stronger e-guns and placement slightly wi...

I checked out the first 10 or so pages available on the internet, looks like it could very interesting - a sort of look back.

Left the garage door open, so Tom you are confirming the use of LN2, re the Dewer that was seen... ?

Of course youre not, you signed a non disclosure- right.....

BTW the Deloren had electric doors, not good.

Thank you hanelyp, do remember what Bussard/Nebel said about the ratio, my memory is thinking 8 to 1 ?

Somewhere in between the middle and the shell. More or less. I know, but I want Wacker to follow the logic chain, somewhere between the spikey bag potential well and the shell means probably not a large population of electrons. And if were not talking about a large population of electrons, then wer...

But Wacker, in a potential well the electrons are dense and slow/cool.

Please explain where you see dense/energetic electrons in a Polywell?

However, that said, they were true believers in optical gunnery, and arguably were the best in the world at it at the time. The width of the target has not as much bearing on getting a hit as you think. The Japanese figured that it would increase chances of hits, as well as incident damage due to s...

Re: hmm

becasue there is bremsstrahlung. Interesting claim. Got any back up? Citations? My understanding about how to create bremsstrahlung is you have to have energetic/fast/hot electrons that are also dense. And in a Polywell you have to have a large enough population of fast/dense electrons to have a ch...
