fusion tests replicated

Quote:
The research team used a standing ultrasonic wave to help form and then implode the cavitation bubbles of deuterated acetone vapor. The oscillating sound waves caused the bubbles to expand and then violently collapse, creating strong compression shock waves around and inside the bubbles. Moving at about the speed of sound, the internal shock waves impacted at the center of the bubbles causing very high compression and accompanying temperatures of about 100 million Kelvin
...so they're using harmonics for constructive interference ...very interesting.

Thanks for that post.

I've been trying to keep track of the progress of fusion reaction research, but it seemed like nothing was happening since a few years ago.

Fusion would be SOOOOO much better than fission for a fuel source.

I wonder what SPL they hit...

Check out stuff like "zero point energy" and "free energy"on your search engine.
