Testing

Postby MSimon » Sat Jul 21, 2007 5:38 am

Testing.

Actually you really don't need to test a Pu bomb explosively these days.

The critical part - the explosive trigger - can be tested with high speed cameras.

Consider all the testing that was done before exploding the first Pu bomb. All that could be done without making a very big nuclear noise.

The only reason to test is to make an announcement.

unlike the Soviet Union

Sadly too many places in the world are like the Soviet Union or worse.

Once the USA starts building a lot of nukes every one is going to want them.

A better idea is Polywells. You can choke them in a number of ways in microseconds. One easy way is to turn off the electron guns with control grids. Another way is to short out the anode supply.

Or you could flood the reactor with fuel causing a Paschen discharge. That might take a few milliseconds.

In any case the most dangerous time for civilization will be as its fruits disperse while too many people hold a tribal mentality. The Drs. Plot in Britain comes to mind.

In America it took a long time to civilize our Indians. Or look at how long it took to civilize France and Germany. We are still very close to our barbarian roots.

Generally I like the British attitude with respect to all problems. Muddle through. The perfect path is only apparent in hindsight.

Raising prosperity levels will initially lead to more troubles.
