No battery charging – we use the power of lightening. First let us consider burning Fossil Fuels
He+O+E2+X-ray is Molecular Nuclear Fusion from regular water.
So both diesel and petrol engines produce He gas, and give out X-rays: good job – as oxidising carbon fuel takes in energy: I was taught this at Sheffield University 1983. Be careful what you tell me – I will remember it!
A simpler way to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion is a steam plasma.
I was doing a PhD at Sheffield 2001, and my supervisor told me the turbulent flow of H gas did Nuclear Fusion.
2 H2+TU+P->He+E3+X-ray brilliant stuff. For which he wants no credit – his funders are nuclear power. Who so don't want Nuclear Fusion on Earth.
He wanted me to take up the PhD, of ultrasounding water producing micro bubbles.
3 H2O+US->He+O+E2+X-ray PhD please!
I carried on researching this area – while writing and singing on stage: as you do. Or is that just me?
So every 3 minutes around the Earth there is a lightening source: a 1.5km steam plasma, set up by heavy rain/snow
4 H2O+TU->He+O+E2+X-ray this is why heavy rain or snow warms the air
At 5,000V, 100 amps we get a 2cm steam plasma tracking to the ground – a lightening bolt.
So we do 4, but get 2.5x1030W of heat. Nature gets 1044W of heat from this source every year.
Clean, safe Nuclear Fusion. Just not very convenient. So we fire up a steam plasma in a 50x1cm glass tube – sat in a water tank. Wtih a pressure vent on one end – as we strike up the plasma – and the plasma pressure shoots up to 10 atmospheres. Too much heat. The plasma will self sustain at 4 atmospheres.
But we do the more exothermic plasma burn.
5 H2O+PL->2(E3+L+X-ray) 2E3=2.4MW from a 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres.
So regular water into massive heat: no CO2 or hyper toxic, radioactive waste. Every operating nuclear plant needs insurance of 100 billion – after Fukishima.
So house owners can have a steam plasma tube linked to a thermoelectric mains generator: and get 144kW of carbon 0 power. No Fossil Fuels burn. No hyper toxic nuclear power.
So burning petrol or diesel does Molecular Nuclear Fusion today. But it is far cheaper to use a steam plasma tube. A 25x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres produces 580kW of heat. A thermoelectric, automotive generator will produce 144kW of carbon 0 heat.
We convert the DC into speed linked AC, which drive contactless electric motors. 45KW will drive a helicopter – so we get so much free power.
From 2x10-17cc of regular water a year. No Fossil Fuels burn, and no CO2. Safe clean Molecular Nuclear Fusion: your beating heart does it – as it beats.
So you can take your pulse with a rapid Geiger counter. And you breath out He and O gases. So no petrol or diesel burn TODAY. We borrow the electronics from a fluorescent light. For every cold start.
Reducing the plasma pressure below 3 atmospheres collapses it. Reducing it to 3.2 atmospheres put it into park mode. Increases the pressure, and off we go.
This is the sceince thagt Volvo and Citroen needs, for carbon 0 motoring.
