It is why the things I was told on my injuring degree in 1983. I got my M.Eng., And actually did very well at it. It so well I moved into IT, I was only doing a PhD in 2000 after an RTA.
A working steam engine gives out gamma wave radiation, and produces helium. I only figured it out in 2000. Professor Zimmerman told me that the turbulent flow of hydrogen gas did nuclear fusion: Oxford University got four billion UK pounds to look at this in 2008, but haven't reported what they found. Presumably because a working system that does nuclear fusion destroys global warming, they made a cash cow of universities.
This was renamed 'climate change' in 2005, as the world began calling. Totally expected from the natural solar cycles. The world will next warm the in 2032. Put it in your diary now.
In 2003 I postulated that the turbulent flow of steam should do molecular nuclear fusion. Maybe I half remembered being told stuff about his steam engine in 1983.
As steam flows in that turbulent fashion we get loads of hydrogen on hydrogen events, from the molecules of water. These exceed the strong atomic force. And we get nuclear fusion, producing helium, the radiation, and loads of heat.
So the industrial revolution was fusion driven. IC engines also do it: diesels more and petrol. That steam engines do most of all. An area totally overlooked for 200 years by academics.
There are other ways are producing a steam in turbulent flow. A working steam engine is just one way. If we titanium plate the working surfaces of the engine, we will double the amount of nuclear fusion we do.
Einstein said E= m C2. Now C2 is 1.5 x 1024. So 1 g of hydrogen will produce more power than America has used in its history. That is 9 g of water. No carbon dioxide. No toxic fission waste.
As done by a waterfall, breaking waves, green crops in the light and your own beating heart: how safe do you want it to be!
