FUSION PROBLEMS? JUST ADD A PINCH OF BORON

FUSION PROBLEMS? JUST ADD A PINCH OF BORON…

Having trouble with your fusion tokamak reactor? Getting some inefficient reactions? Is the duct tape not stopping the plasma leaks? Well, relax, just add a pinch of boron to that pesky nuclear plasma, and the reaction efficiency will improve, according to this article spotted and shared by T.M.:

Powder, not gas: A safer, more effective way to create a star on Earth by Staff Writers

And in case you missed it, here's the gist:

"The main goal of the experiment was to see if we could lay down a layer of boron using a powder injector," said PPPL physicist Robert Lunsford, lead author of the paper reporting the results in Nuclear Fusion. "So far, the experiment appears to have been successful."

The boron prevents an element known as tungsten from leaching out of the tokamak walls into the plasma, where it can cool the plasma particles and make fusion reactions less efficient. A layer of boron is applied to plasma-facing surfaces in a process known as "boronization."

Scientists want to keep the plasma as hot as possible - at least ten times hotter than the surface of the sun - to maximize the fusion reactions and therefore the heat to create electricity.

Using powder to provide boronization is also far safer than using a boron gas called diborane, the method used today. "Diborane gas is explosive, so everybody has to leave the building housing the tokamak during the process," Lunsford said.

"On the other hand, if you could just drop some boron powder into the plasma, that would be a lot easier to manage. While diborane gas is explosive and toxic, boron powder is inert," he added. "This new technique would be less intrusive and definitely less dangerous."

Now just imagine Julie Andrews reprising her role as Mary Poppins, and singing "Just a spoon full of boron makes the plasma react," sung to the tune of "Just a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down," and you get the idea.

But you may be thinking, "Gee, this boron-plasma thing sounds awfully familiar, but I just can't put my finger on it." Well, every now and then an article comes along that makes you revisit things you've already revisited. And today is no different. Let's go back to my blog of April 12, 2011:

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU SAY “HMMM!”: FUSION, BORON, AND ...

So what we have here is an idea, from 1936 no less, that appears to have been recycled by that montebank and charlatan, the original fusion-fraudster, Dr. Ronald Richer, in Argentina. Here's what I said in 2011:

In his endless statements to the USAF, however, Richter emphasizes how adding boron to his plasma soups increased the energy of his reactions. Well, so here we are, almost exactly sixty years later, and now we're being told more or less the same thing. It really sort of makes one wonder, not only what the good Dr. Richter was really up to down there, but also, what the American Black Projects "community" did with it....

So, just add a pinch of boron to your plasma soup, and voila, a more efficient reaction, and one easier to control (as Dr. Richter also maintained). Now, as I also pointed out in 2011, the United States Air Force and the American scientific community didn't quite know how to assess Dr. Richter:

Of course, Richter was roundly and publicly denounced by the scientific establishment for his claims, while secretly the USAF and Atomic Energy Commissions were investigating the man, and coming to a whole spectrum of conclusions about him, from "he's nuts and a complete fraud" to "he's a mad genius working in the 1970s".

That stuff about Richter being "a mad genius working in the 1970s" is found in some of the Air Force documents I reproduced in my book The Nazi International in the chapters about Richter (Chapters 9 and 10). Only it would appear, from this article, that the American authorities may have been off by about five decades.

After all, T.M.'s submitted article was written at the end of 2019, and it's looking more and more like the original fusion fraudster, Richter, may have been way ahead of the curve...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Definitely sounds suspicious Doc.. I posted a response on Twitter and now here that this Also reminds of the Joseph Papp Noble Gas plasma motor! Which was widely thought to produce anomalous engery.. and also thought that fowl play was involved when Richard Feynman was there to see it run and subsequently it exploded killing 1 of the witnesses! And we never heard about it again.. hmmmm..

  2. I used this same method back in 2015 in my novel, Chaos Rising. Although the powder was Durnanide X, and the container was a Kottrell Sphere. Good to see that reality may imitate Fiction one day.

    Is this plain old grocery store borax we’re talking about??? If so, another use for it is a smidgen of it in a huge glass of water to be sipped throughout the day & it will help diffuse what-ever-it-is we are breathing in everyday!!! 😉

  4. Anyone else remember dairy cows in Hawaii being fed boron in anticipation of fallout after 3/11/11?

    Our friends at the former “Don’t be evil” company seem to have buried such items in “we won’t search” land. Interesting the articles on boron supplementations good effects lately.

  5. The real problem is what is the real game behind the thwarting of technological development across the past century at least. Cui Bono and what is the end game of our shadow masters.

  6. the ultimate prize, electricity too cheap to meter, but for security purposes every electron will be cohesively enchained to the system and monitored, or destroyed and denied.
    any further developments like 3 print your own reactor will necessitate a supervisory robot, however small, to ensure state monopoly and security of the state.
    (this article brought to mind the 300 soviet helicopter pilots that died dropping boron on Chernobyl).

      A supervisory robot? loved it!
      No doubt.
      Choose your required house robot assistant.
      Many makes and types; all seeing, all hearing, all knowing.

  7. I imagine the boron traps the heavy hydrogen and prevents it from escaping before it can react with whatever sponge metal is being used. Probably helps insulate each molecule so it holds its heat better and also increases efficiancy.

    Boron?
    Are “Death Valley Days” here again w/General Electric’s spokesman, Ronald Reagan?
    Tungsten getting a lot of ink theses satellite days.
    Nothing Musk boring here?
    Boronization sounds like a symptom of TV entertainment.
    Electric brains need electricity; as does the IoT.
    LOL! Dangerous? Explosive?
    Since when are paradigm energy shifts dangerous?

    Stole my thunder> Yep, another patent stealing example.
    Of course, I do it all the time myself.

    Publicly denounced = strikes a fire-hot TPTB’s nerve.

    Yep, back to the future; when Richter was way ahead of the power curve.
    Now is time for current energies based on waste[petroleum]; to truly become a dinosaur, as TPTB”S “new” energy begins to be rolled out in measured and accountable unit$.

  9. Couldn’t other powdery elements be experimented with? I wouldn’t know which or for what purpose…

  10. Does it also help with cold fusion?

    To be quite honest I look at fusion research the same way I look at cancer research — it’s a funding gravy train that will never be allowed to give up applicable results, and essentially a distraction.

    Nice that boron keeps all that expensive machinery from corroding though.

      It is impossible to win a chess game against the Persians, because they are undisputed masters of the game.

      One can only rearrange position, into challenging oneself, realizing, that one’s opponent is oneself.

      Runic chess of diametrical oppositions is precisely that, because Man mirrors God in Genesis.

      Who is Doctor Who, in the mirror?
