Scientists so nearly had it right. We use an old 'fusion' torus. Which universities around the world have in cold storage.
We split water into H+ and O2- gases. WE do not heat it – and 1 atmosphere is just fine. Though my data was for 4 atmospheres.
Initially we sell ¾ of the oxygen we produce – it has high commercial value. Now we turn the torus into an atomic ball mill. So we spin the ions using a linear atomic field. No containment field is required.
The H+ rotate in 1 direction, and as we set up a steam plasma we strip the oxygen of its electrons.
1 O2-+TU->O2++2e- -E TU=fluid turbulence in the gases
Now we have the positive ions circulating in one direction, they electrons in the other. This sets up the plasma, which emits light, X-rays and energy. Very occasionally, we get the hydrogen ion colliding with an electron.
2 H++e- ->n0 neutrons – the unwind of matter.
The neutrons bond with the oxygen, to give us a fission chain.
3 O+n0 ->2Be+2n0->4He+4n0->8H+8n0
This is why we sweetened the torus with extra Hs, we want more neutrons, until the system is established. Then we get our main energy release
4 He+t n0->2H+u n0 ->v n0+E3+X-ray+L
So a steam plasma tube self sustains at 4 atmospheres – giving out heat and light. We can use them to replace the sun light at the Poles. So our net process is
We get 17.2 MW from a 1mx2cm torus. We use a 20cm x2m torus, and universities will produce 172MW of heat – 20MW of carbon 0 power.
Using equipment already paid for – or costing 2,000 UK pounds to build. We get an annual income of 600 billion. So how many nano seconds will pay for the plant?
Carbon 0 power – with no radioactive waste. 2,000 pounds plus the turbine – not 18 billion for an uninsured, hyper toxic uranium fission plant.
Not insured plant should operate. But all 20 nuclear plants in the UK have been under insured since Chernobyl in 1984. The regulator has the legal imperative to issue immediate stop orders – 32 years ago. Money, and lots of it, changed hands. 200 million.
Every operating plant owes legal fines of 3 billion: with its managers serving 3 millennia in jail. Also the deficient regulators.
Molecular Nuclear Fusion plant – massively inexpensive, and can be stopped with the clink of a vent switch – to collapse the plasma. So no impossibly high insurance. Clean, free, carbon 0 power. And here is so much water in the seas, limitless.
A 100 MW power station will only use 2x10-16cc of regular water a year.
