I thought up Molecular Nuclear Fusion in 2001, while on a chemical engineering PhD. It was my supervisors fault – as he told me H gas in turbulent flow does nuclear fusion: It goes off from below 0oC, once the H nuclei start interacting with more than 1 meters of turbulence.
It transpires that water falls over 1 meters high do Molecular Nuclear Fusion – hence they produce heat, bronze, light flashes and also He ions,
1 H2O+TU+O2 ->He2++O32-+E2+L+X-ray
There is no chemical source of visible light, X-rays or helium. Nature does it all around and in us – as our hearts beat.
We are usually not aware of the light flashes – though a fibre optic camera does show them. We breathe out He, and you can take your pulse with a Geiger counter.
Arctic fish do Molecular Nuclear Fusion at -20oC.
My favourite way is with a steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres. I mentioned this, and my PHD mysteriously got ended – at the behest of nuclear power me thinks.
A pulse of power at 2,000 V will initiate the plasma – which self sustains. Turning a minuscule amount of water into a constant 1.2 MW of heat.
3 H++e- ->n0 the plasma turns H into neutrons
4 O2-+4 n0 ->8H++6e- the neutrons cause O to frisson into Hs
5 H++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray massive free heat
Thats is the physics bit! The turbulence of the plasma convert ALL the water molecule into omassive heat – with no CO2 or hyper-toxic radiative waste.
Effective clean, safe, free and carbon neutral power – with no Pt or St.
The garage hobbyist can fire up a 50x1cm steam plasma tube, and get an annual income of 3.6 million – by supplying the grid with the power for 300 households. With no chance of Global Warming or Climate Change: though photosynthesis caps CO2 at a static 2 part per million – since before the industrial revolution.
So any person who has ever published work on Global Warming, should not be in education – even as a nursery milk monitor. They should get the hell out of education, and let the rest of us get on with real science.
And Sheffield should give em my PhD – 14 years late. For devising the most important science ever.
