The "billions of particles" are positrons. The catalysed nuclear fisson/fusion is via anti-protons - not at all the same. And no obvious way to make anti-protons from positrons.
Still, a cheap source of positrons will no doubt have many uses.
Best wishes, Tom

As I see it - We know that Dr. Nebel et al have not yet gone home. This is how people can stay in place, and the 3 specific contracts are for useful work of the sort we would expect at the current stage. It tells us that the project has not yet been canned. It does not say that WB-7 indicates clearl...
Eestor are claiming 100X the energy density of anyone else using standard (i.e. not double-layer) capacitors. And 20X that of the best DL capacitors. There is no known physical mechanism for the polarisation they need for storage, and eestor have never provided any evidence that they have this, or p...
