Czech physicist: Nuclear power can cause an energy revolution, it is a world change

We entered the industrial revolution, which used the knowledge of thermodynamics. Next came the digital revolution, i.e. the revolution that uses quantum mechanics and Maxwell’s equations. And this new energy revolution, which will use physics, said Milan Holec in Rozstel.

What do we need at this time? A decentralized source of electricity for humanity. Which is especially safe and secure. And functional energy meets this, because we have fuel for roughly two billion years for all of humanity. We only need water for this, which is enough in the prices, continues the physicist.

You don’t have to fight for resources because of it. It doesn’t matter whether or not you have minerals on your land. It is a truly accessible technology for everyone, adds Holec.

In addition, according to Holc, the nuclear power has one huge advantage. There is no risk of an explosion like in the case of nuclear power plants. The fuel will only break in there and it will fall, there will not be a diesel reaction that could get out of control.

Moreover, it does not produce any harmful waste. Only helium, i.e. a rare gas, is formed, which does not pose a risk to production. This kind of energy production can thus be considered more for etheric energy production.

It’s only bad for investors when they grab and finance this imaginary trillion-dollar industry. And then I really came to a really radical energetic progress. And I know it will happen, I’m a physicist.

Visualization of nuclear fusion

And could humanity be able to produce this energy in the foreseeable future? According to Milan Holc, yes. And the joke got around that in ten years we will have it. But it was basically endless tens of years. But now I think it’s time to buy a meter.

From the point of view of the physical process, within five years we will understand plasma from the point of view of the reactor, which means that, in an optimistic version, within fifteen years we will be able to adapt the physical reaction to industrial conditions, the physicist thinks.

But the goal is, of course, to have a power plant that would generate electricity for the company. When it comes to time, in the 2000s we could have the first one involved in st. Well, in the next few years, we can even imagine that we will have a functioning decentralized energy system, thinks Milan Holec.

Popen law of physics?

And how does nuclear fze work? At first glance, according to the physicist, it seems like a process that defies the laws of physics. You’re right. It turns out that we are violating the law of conservation of energy. But you are included in the whole physical process of microscopic properties. We are able to see the energy that is stored in the core and which we normally do not see because it is a miniature difference.

We can extract this energy from the core and finally capture it in the reactor. Of course, we can’t break the laws of thermodynamics, so we don’t perpetual motion. But this process provides us with energy that is so cheap that it is essentially inexhaustible, explains the physicist.

In December, at the American center NIF (National Ignition Facility, i.e. in the National Ignition Facility), scientists managed to start a laser in a few centimeter hohlraumu (train, in which a small ball with hydrogen fuel is located) reaction, during which hydrogen nuclei were used for helium. During this reaction, 3.15 megajoules of energy were released, which is roughly half of what the lasers used.

It is de facto the same reaction that moves the Sun. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Einstein was the first to realize that energy is the most important characteristic, not matter. he said that when we have a material object, we are able to count how much energy flows in it. In this case, it is actually a fusion of two nuclei of vodka, where the weight of both of them can be removed.

And when the nuclei fuse, says Milan Holec, helium and neutrons are produced. The bottom line is that when you take helium and a neutron, suddenly there is no vodka in my tank. And when we turn to Einstein, i.e. to his equation E=mc2, so because the mass changed, it means that energy had to be generated, which seemed to be lost somewhere. But really, if a hunter saw the reaction up close, the helium is filled with a huge speed from the place of the reaction, because it takes the energy from the residue that turned from the mass of vodka.

Of course not the Sun

It is true that the velocity of helium is high, so it is an extreme condition. But it’s a microcosm. And when we look at it from a human perspective, it’s just hot gas, plasma, of course very hot plasma. Here, the only thing we have to do is to interact the plasma from the outside and remove the heat, to Milan Holec with the fact that this can be done, for example, with a steam turbine.

But since we’re working with plasma, we can charge the lines. And there you can find an effective process through Maxwell’s equation, through the magnetic field. This is a question of the future, a very new concept, but it is something that is being researched, said the physicist.

The facility where the experiment took place is as big as football stadiums. But you can get to the nuclear power itself in the viper’s little ball. It is full of deuterium and tritium. A deuterium nucleus consists of one proton and one neutron, and a tritium nucleus consists of one proton and two neutrons. One hundred and ninety-two lasers started on the plover and heated its contents to about one hundred million degrees.

We created absolutely unique conditions for the team. We created an imaginary sun. Moreover, what we managed to create in California was much brighter, hotter than our Sun. According to Milan Holec, his lifetime was many times.

And where was he during the experiment? The imaginary laser bed took place at one o’clock in the morning, so ninety-nine percent of the female laboratory workers were asleep. And when they first started talking about the expected consequences, i.e. how many neutrons escaped from it, it was very emotional. And I was at the first party in Princeton, not far from New York.

In Rozstel, Milan Holec described in detail the phase reaction itself, the plasma that is necessary for the experiment, and how the research will continue. I can’t tell you when he’s going to bed, but I’ll let you know that we have a famous lover, promised the physicist.
