Z machine

The Z machine offers the option of a clean and almost indefinite energy. Gerardof Fortuñosky explains more.

The Z machine, Z Pulsed Power Facility,  is the largest high-frequency electromagnetic wave generator in the world and is designed to test materials in conditions of extreme temperature and pressure. Since its refurbishment in October 1996, it has been used primarily as an inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research facility. Operated by Sandia National Laboratories, it gathers data to aid in computer modeling of nuclear weapons and eventually nuclear fusion pulsed power plants.

The Z machine releases a powerful 10 million amperes electrical shock for less than 100 nanoseconds in a matrix of very thin tungsten cables placed parallel. The high voltage current vaporizes the cables, which are transformed into a cylindrical plasma curtain. Simultaneously, the current density induces a strong magnetic field and the combination of both compresses the plasma. Implanted plasma produces high temperatures and X-rays.LFW-Automated-Alignment_01aThe high temperatures and X-rays that the Z machine can produce can be used to generate energy, with which you can re-operate the machine producing more leftover energy that can be used for everything. At the beginning of 2006, the Z machine produced plasmas with announced temperatures in excess of 2.000.000.000 degrees centigrade.
