Superhalogens, hyperhalogens, hyperatoms, and controlled nuclear decays

Walter, This morning I was going over the magnetic, isotopic and chemical properties of manganese, and all the industrial and societal uses. I came across the terms “superhalogens” and “hyperhalogens” “hyperhalogens” OR “superhalogens” OR “hyperhalogen” OR “superhalogen” has 20,500 entry points There are LOTS of related terms – superalkalai, superatoms.  People like to make their

Comment on Can You Modify A Car To Save Fuel?

Can You Modify A Car To Save Fuel? – Fifth Gear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39g5D7h7jf8 The weight reduction impact shows up if you start and stop as part of a test. Aerodynamic drag goes as the density of air times the velocity squared. You should have waited for a day identical to the first. You guys are in

Houston Astronomical Society Presentation by Noah Pearson on 28 Jan 2022 – comments and suggestions

Luis, This was a good presentation.  On Vimeo, watching reruns, no way to say “Thank you to the presenter” or to ask questions. We live in a world where any author’s work might be available globally for all time forward.  And, it they are living, the small matter of “time” it taken care of by

Mars and moon and space need atomic power – shipping to Mars example

SpaceX Starship can return from Mars without surface refilling at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u55zpE4r-_Y The engineering design and manufacturing costs for atomic power are a lot less than the cost of hauling chemical or solar panels to Mars. Do the numbers and see what it is worth to spend on lightweight atomic power units and technologies. A few ten

Comment on the true cost of electric vehicles – wasted time by not sharing models and data

Tesla vs Gas: TRUE Charging Cost After 75,000 Miles at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRie5t9GHLw 75,000 miles/28 miles per gallon equivalent = 2,679 gallon gas equivalent 2679 gge * (33.7 KWH/gge) = 90,282 KWH at 100% efficiency 90,283/0.92 efficiency = 98133 KWH purchased 98133 KWH * 0.0798 $/KWH = $6948 But he says $1400. His miles per gallon seems

Comment on plasma cutting video by Jason Michael Saunders, referring to 3D printed rockets

Comment on YouTube Jason, I watched this Genius of 3D Printed Rockets video the other day. They are using plasma discharge heating, but it is not very well controlled at all. They say “it works really precisely”, but it throws off heat and light and bits of wire, and fluctuates a lot. It only needs

Thermodynamic Clocks – Time reversible systems, quality, gravitational detectors, solar system coordination

Shawn, Thank you for thinking of me, and sharing. The gravitational energy density (and the usually much smaller magnetic, electric and thermodynamic energy densities) control the rate of chemical, atomic and nuclear events at any location.  The most often used phenomena are “gravitational time dilation”, “relativistic or general relativistic corrections (from velocity and gravity)”.  An

Comment on The 49 dollar, 500 WattHour eBike Battery video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FwA_s9Ovxc You talk about motivations for watching and DIY at about minute 14. The reason I am watching is I have a lifetime of learning how things work, what they can do, and how to put them into different combinations. Often the off-the-shelf parts don’t fit, or are overkill or too expensive. Mostly they just

Solar system colonization – needs and opportunities, “working globally” becomes “working solar system wide”

With LEDs going to lower and lower energies, moving electrons is probably less expensive than digging holes and trying to concentrate the rather thin light on Mars. I was gathering what groups and resources are needed to send small nuclear packages to Mars to provide the energy needed. The old dream of atomic energy was

Merging and upgrading sensor networks towards new industries and materials

Shawn, The atmospheric gravitational noise is much larger than the signals from the subsurface (usually). The noise in that gravimeter you want to buy is mostly atmospheric and thermal radiation field connected. Calibrate it against the sun and moon first. Then against 3D near realtime atmospheric models. (Climate and meteorology are just atmospheric, and the
