A Revised Version of the Thermonuclear Fusion Steam Machine
This article presents the proposal for new fusion power plants made exclusive of existing technology, how they work and how they are built in detail and that they work. The latter is proven by means of basically thermodynamic considerations. Also, the text proves the safety and ecologic cleanness of the plants. It shows in detail how to build them economically, of course by apparently unusual and violent means, and it takes some getting used to. The electric energy they deliver on Earth will be cheaper than any form of electric energy before, although they are built on the Moon. In this case it is because they are built on the Moon. Fusion energy is available.
– proposal for a fusion energy plant of GW size buildable at present: a fusion bomb steam machine
[This is the older and original version of the thermonuclear fusion steam machine. The article describes in detail, how I got the idea, and why I was sure, that it could work. But there was still a thermodynamic trap in the approach, and after some years the plant would have suffered the heat death. I did a change in the geometry and size to avoid this problem. Please refer to the newest version: „The Nomad Fusion Reactor“]
Scientists all over the world, experts for Nuclear Physics and Plasma Physics, are working today on Billion Dollars expensive experimental devices [3a] to make Fusion Energy available to mankind. They are developing their giant plants for about 40 years  now, but they are not much further (in producing energy) than hobbyists that are building small electrodynamic fusion energy devices in their cellars for a few thousand dollars . Both, the big and the small devices, turn out a nuclear fusion reaction, and both have the same problem: they don’t produce energy. Of course there is energy from the fusion reaction, but in both cases it is much less than the fusion reactor consumes itself. So the scientific reports periodically released are very depressive to read. There is also an illustrious scientific work, a dissertation, that circulates for 17 years, which calculates, that both kinds – the big and the small – of continuous fusion reactors will never work, both because of the same reasons .
Yesterday I started reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury again. I read it for the first time about 25 years ago, around 1988. The book was published first in 1954 in Great Britain by Rupert Hart-Davis, Ltd. Ray Bradbury is an American Citizen but he found an English publisher for the book. I don’t know if this has something to do with the political circumstances of the USA of the 1950th, but some philosophic writers got problems in this political period and the novel is very sociocritical. It’s an utopian novel, virtually a dystopian story, that tries to show us, that if we loose our books, we loose everything. Why? Because if we loose our books, we loose our history and so the essences of the complete lives of all our predecessors. I was thinking if there are today technologies that are able to completely annihilate mankind and human history, more than the firemen in Bradbury’s novel and their programmable assassin robots can do.
