In 2001 I told my chemical engineering PhD supervisor that a working steam engine releases X-rays and produces He gas – it does Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
1 H2O+TU ->He+O+E2+X-ray TU=turbulence
There is no other possible source of He and X-rays. It turns out every 3 minutes around he Earth, there is a lightening strike that makes 5 tonnes of He!
This equates to an energy release of 2.5x1030 W. Clean power, with no radioactive waste.
The deep sea makes 3He, which is lost to space within 24 hours – having reacted with nothing – as the deep does Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
Your own beating heart does Molecular Nuclear Fusion – at body temperature. Totally harmlessly.
A 50x1cm steam plasma will produce 1.2 MW of heat. Which will produce the power for 3,000 users! With no Fossil Fuels burn. And no hyper-toxic uranium nuclear fission.
So clean, free heat! With no CO2. 14 years ago. Why was my PhD ended? The most important, life saving physics ever.
And nobody has researched Molecular Nuclear Fusion – though I have published it all on the internet!
