It is a very weak way to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion
A simpler way to do nuclear fusion, is copy nature. Around every radiant star, there is a hydrogen corona. Stars that have used by all their H and He cease to be radiant, contract a 1,000 fold, and orbit the universe as dense regions of gravity – brown stars, not back holes. So they so Nova, as the in fall of antimatter makes them cease to be attractive.
The light from radiant stars drive back the antimatter, beyond the heliopause. So no black doles – and no big bang.
So we fill a 50x1cm glass tube with H gas up t o2 atmospheres. We get H by the electrolysis of water.
We fire up the plasma using the electronics from a fluorescent light. Fluorescent lights emit X-rays, heat and light, as they fission Na gas.
1 23Na1++e- ->23Ne+L so much light. Half-life 23Neon too small to measure
2 23Na1++4e- ->11H++7e-
3 H++e- ->n0
4 H++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray no solid, radioactive waste
So we do the plasma burn professors were talking about 1986 – which I did not follow up. But neither did they. So Na plasma do nuclear fusion from low atomic weights- with no toxic radioactive waste.
And it lights your kitchen. The mass of Na is consumed until the light stops shining. A strip of Na, spring loaded, would stop the fluorescent ever stop shining – with no external current. Fluorescent run on for ever. Na is a volatile metal.
So our 50x1cm H plasma turns the hydrogen ions and free electrons into neutrons.
5 xH++e- ->(1+x)n0
The neutrons bond with other H ions, to give us massive heat. The hydrogen from 8x10-15cc of regular water, will produce a constant 580kW, at 2 atmospheres for a year. Once started the plasma will self sustain. Equation 4.
Which leaves burning oil massively over priced, and energy poor. An infinitesimal volume of regular water will produce more power than 12 1m rows of oil or gas burners.
Saudi Arabia's response – ship less oil. Who cares? Setting up a H plasma tube 2 hours work. No oil burn ever again. So less and less oil is being shipped, and the price crashing.
