Ivy will be presenting at a Mensa event on May 30 to explain why a successful implementation of the Green New Deal requires fusion energy. Eric will be there as well to answer technical questions.
We've installed the beryllium anode on the machine.
We're explaining how our fusion device is put together and some improvements we're making here.
We began the final stage of assembly of our new beryllium electrodes, transferring the beryllium anode into our nitrogen-filled glove box to protect us from any contact with beryllium dust and to protect the anode from water vapor and oxygen in the air.
Thanks @koyu for the help restoring the instance! 👍
Eric's AMA is now live! If you have any questions you'd like to ask now is a great time.
The numbers on each frame show the time elapsed since the start of the pulse. The region shown of the anode, close to the end of the insulator is a cm wide. The filaments (bright stripes) first form and become more distinct, then at the end begin to merge together, becoming destroyed. The bright regions near the lower end of the sheath are heavily contaminated with tungsten vaporized from the anode.
That's 8:00 PM EDT in case it's too small. We'll send out a toot with the exact URL 15 minutes before the AMA starts!
