The New York Times released an article on May 26, 2009 titled In Hot Pursuit of Fusion (or Folly).
In February, NIF fired its 192 beams into its target chamber for the first time, and it now has the world’s most powerful laser, as well as the largest optical instrument ever built. But raising its energies still further to the point of ignition could take a year or more of experimentation and might, officials concede, prove daunting and perhaps impossible.
For all the hype about the success of the Standard Model, it is failing spectacularly. Billions of dollars, thousands of top scientists, and years of research and engineering are being wasted on Gravitational Wave detectors (I detect gravity waves with home built equipment) and Hot Fusion ignition.
The Aether Physics Model clearly shows fusion is actually a proton version of the Casimir effect. Two protons, held a quantum distance apart and magnetically aligned, cause the intervening Aether to oscillate and absorb a proton's quantity of dark matter to produce a proton. The initial state of this new creation is a proton-sized photon. In the Sun's corona, these photons radiate away as light. When the process occurs inside an atom, the photon is converted to a proton and actually increases the amount of matter in the Universe. Hence, stars literally grow in size, as do planets and other bodies in the Universe.
Plants and animals routinely convert atoms from one element to another via biological transmutations. By exchanging hydrogen and oxygen nuclei, plants and animals manufacture the elements they need by manipulating the atoms' geometry. That is why it takes so little heat for simple life forms to fuse or break apart atoms.
Simple life forms apparently have the ability to manipulate atomic structures. To compare the approach of a simple life form to a Standard Model scientist, the simple life form unlocks a padlock with a key, whereas the scientist attempts to blow it open with dynamite. The Aether Physics Model shows us the approach to atomic structures that nature uses, whereas the approach of the Standard Model is strictly destructive.
The Standard Model of physics does not recognize the geometry of subatomic particles or atoms. All matter is considered to be a trade off between the dimension of mass and the unit of energy. The Standard Model is merely a poetic theory, as opposed to the discrete theory of the Aether Physics Model.
