The problem is that lab conditions still wouldn't match the conditions in the sun.  Because of its gravitational conditions, the sun's core only needs to be about 10 million degrees to sustain a fusion reaction.  Because scientists cannot match those gravitational conditions on earth, the temperature must be 100 million degrees to initiate the fusion reaction. 

What is your point?

BTW, if you're looking for more energy out that in, you need look no farther than a hydrogen bomb.

Can a hydrogen bomb explosion be sustained indefinitely?

Doesn't matter. And how does our ability to create sustainable protium fusion proves that it is possible or not? You really claim that these things which we can't do itself are impossible and don't exist in universe?

I didn't say it was impossible, I only said it had never been shown to be possible.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

So, you accept then that it is possible in conditions which we can't recreate in earth at moment with our technological abilities.

My point is that lab conditions will never match the same conditions in the core of stars, therefore sustaining fusion under lab conditions will not prove or disprove the viability of nuclear fusion within the cored of stars.

Nope, and neither can the sun.  Eventually, the sun's supply of hydrogen will diminish to the point where heavier elements begin to fuse.  After a while, fusion of those heavier elements will no longer be sustainable either, at which point the sun will go nova, take most of the inner solar system with it (including the Earth) and this discussion won't matter any more.

But at least it would prove the process to be viable at least in one circumstance, which is more than RET can say for itself at the moment.

By "indefinitely" I meant fed with more fuel to propagate the reaction. Can more protium be somehow injected into an H-bomb explosion to keep it going?

If you said - I didn't say it was impossible - what that means then? I know that if thing isn't impossible then it is possible. As I see it you then accept that "sustainable protium fusion" is possible because you itself stated that it isn't impossible.

Yes, one circumstance that has nothing at all to do with the conditions present in the core of the sun.

Since an H-bomb is not designed for sustained fusion, I rather doubt it.

I don't see how this is relevant to my point that nobody has ever shown protium nuclear fusion to be a sustainable source of energy.

Since an H-bomb is not designed for sustained fusion, I rather doubt it.

Which is exactly why they are inadequate as a demonstration of sustainable energy from fusion.

And I don't see how not being able to create sustained fusion in the lab has anything to do with the readily observable sustained fusion in the sun.  BTW, proton-proton chain reaction is not the only form of fusion occurring in the sun.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_nucleosynthesis#Key_reactions  I'm guessing that none of those forms of fusion have been demonstrated in the lab as sustained reactions either.

I never said that it was sustainable.  I just said that you get more energy out of an H-bomb fusion reaction than you put into it.

FE is not anymore viable. FE also requires fusion power to explain the power output of the sun. No chemical reaction could provide that much energy for millions of years.

If you bother to argue about it then you must know if it is possible or not because people argue about something when they know something about something.

No it does not. It only has one called fusion power and that is not unexplained unlike the mysterious powersource of the FE-sun.

BTW. FET have a lot more unexplained phenomenons than RE.

Have there been a single experiment on earth that has replicated this phenomenon longer than duration of a fusion bomb explosion? If not wouldn't it be more logical to believe that fusion the is the powersource of the sun rather than some unexplained phenomenon that we have no proof of.

The biggest mistake you are making is that you are thinking that RET and sustainable fusion power are a same thing which they are not.
Fusion power could just as well be powering the FET-sun and your mystical power source could just as well be powering the billions of stars in the RE-theory.

The RE theory, as the process has theoretical backing and doesn't require completely undiscovered methods of generating energy, like the FE sun.

Flat Earth Discussion / Flat Earth Debate & Discussion / Final Comment on the Grand Unified Flat Earth Theory

on: June 08, 2007, 10:49:35 AM

It is impossible. I've concluded that the reason why there are so many conflicting aspects of FET is that no one model could possibly explain everything FET lacks compared to RET. And there is simply too much that RET explains perfectly that FET has to strain to explain (and often in a completely illogical manner).

I've decided that the search for such a concept is entirely vain, and I don't want to go down the route of Ponce de Leon, searching my whole life for something that in all likelihood does not exist. So it is with great sadness and exhaustion that I give up.

I've also come to the conclusion that much of the ?evidence? purportedly backing up FET is taken as dogma by the FEers on this site, which ironically is what they were claiming to rail against in the first place. A round earth has tons of evidence backing it up. A flat earth has only appearances and the flawed experiments of an irrelevant ?scientist? 150 years ago backing it up.

I am an REer once again, and will be until an FEer (any FEer, including Tom) can provide something conclusive that disproves RET. For the time being, though, RET is elegant, it explains a lot that FET can't explain, and it makes perfect sense. Unless that changes I can't in good conscience call myself an FEer.

I will still mess with the noobs.
