My understanding is separating atoms is called fission, like a nuclear power plant. Fusion is fusing two atoms together, like the warp drive on Star Trek...which, to my knowledge, man cannot do just yet.
This, being an atom separator, is a fission reaction to create electricity.
Too bad none of us are preapproved.
According to the auction it is not used to produce electricity but to produce hydrogen gas (H2) from water.
what are you talking about? fusion IS possible, and we HAVE done it. some atoms on the periodic table of elements are created by fusing two existing elements together and they form a new one. they do not last long though.
making it last would be the whole point, wouldn't it?
not to people who do this, they just want to prove it can be done then be done with it. they really arent used for anything.
then it's not a viable technology to people who want to use it, which in the long run, is the whole purpose of making something work.
and when doing this the conditions have to be JUST right for them to fuse. we are talking intense pressures and temperatures, it would be too hard/costly to try to sustain these conditions for an element they wont use. they just want to prove it can be done.
I know what you're saying. but somewhere down the line someone's gonna want to make it last so we can travel to Pluto in 10 minutes. To those people, it's not a viable technology. see my point?
bragging rights, lol. if they create a new element they can name it after themself, lol.
Separate names with a comma.
