wow! I think we've got a genius here.
The most exciting thing is how all this seems natural for him along with seeing the guy in short next to his fusion reactor and a professor staring at the glowing ball of gas.

Gah! I was gonna give you the answer but the page is down. I'll look again later.



{EDIT}PH046 is the entry number for his project. I'm actually using this more for my notes. But if you're interested... go ahead and hunt a little yourselves.{/EDIT}

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

InI: You're right. As it is, it's neither a revolution nor industrially usable. Actually I'm not a fusion reactor expert, so I may be wrong. But the apparent ease with which he did that is impressive and let foreshadow a brillant carreer for him.

It's also nice to see that high end physic can be achieved with few bucks and a bunch of screwdrivers.
The contest he won may be rather confidentials. Google returns only 3 results for "Craig Wallace" Nuclear Fusion Reactor.

POÏ - Build your own particle accelerator

quote:
At some point in the circle you have made, you will need to build a switching point, so that once your particle has reached maximum velocity you can alter it's course to hit the target atom. The cheapest though not necessarily the most accurate way of doing this is to have one of the dustbins temporarily attached to the next. At the appropriate moment you can then rush over, pull the bin out of line and point it at something before the particle comes round again. Do remember that you will have to be very alert as it will be travelling in the region of 150,000 miles per second.
