Saw the other thread that started here in MD and moved to Jobs.

What a disapointment. I wanted to hear the latest on desktop fusion power.

All you need for fusion is hydrogen, which you can get from tap water with a bit of electricity. Plus in addition to the hydrogen, you get oxygen, which is good to breath.

I especially like the AN fittings on all the plumbing.

Of course, you can buy an E-Cat. It's on the market, right now!

(Well, I'm not selling power companies shares yet....)

You need heavy water. That is obviously why the Mr Fusion device is shown on such a substantial floor.

Yeah, I remember that from Grade 8 science class. It was the coolest demonstration, especially when after the bright flash of light the glassware all smashed on the ceiling. Who says you can't get people to remember their high school science?

Perhaps you could get the tap water to Jupiter, As far as I know, things are much heavier there. Plus, there is lots of free electricity on Jupiter, especially if you keep close to Io.
