Electrostatic Gunnon

Authors: Alexander Bolonkin
Comments: 5 Pages.

The author proposes a new type of gun, in which the projectile is accelerated by an electrostatic field. It shows that a strong electrostatic field (high voltage pulse) can accelerate a small charge (shell) to huge speeds (up to 1000 km/s). If this micro-projectile (10-4 grams) consists of thermonuclear fuel, its explosion will destroy the target. This idea can be used to create thermonuclear engines and missiles, for conventional long-range artillery.

Neutron Scattering Techniques

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 24 Pages.

An international team led by New Zealand food scientists at the Riddet Institute has used neutron scattering techniques to characterize the structure of an oil-in-water emulsion commonly used in foods, such as milk, cream, salad dressings and sauces. [14] Coupled with SNS, the world's most powerful pulsed accelerator-based neutron source, VENUS will be the only open research facility platform in the US to provide time-of-flight neutron imaging capabilities to users from academia and industry. [13] A spallation neutron source has been used by physicists in Japan to search for possible violations of the inverse square law of gravity. [12]

“AI” Physics – Atomic Structure – Part 2.

Authors: Brian Strom
Comments: 21 Pages.

In the first paper on Atomic Structure, Artificial Intelligence (AI) was used to explore the structure of the atom by analyzing the results of established experiments on ionization energies and spectral emissions. In this paper, the findings of AI Physics - Energy Fields are used to further analyze the nature of sub-atomic particles. Analysis of radio-isotope decay leads to proposals on the structure of the atom, and Energy Field theory leads to alternative explanations for the structure of the nucleus, the nature of the crystal lattice, and the nature of molecular structure.
