The seals are those copper rings in the picture with the quarter, the covers are torqued so the knife edge deforms the copper and creates a seal. The chamber is a salvaged unit (with ports upon ports with some extra ports thrown in for good measure), but the hardware and the covers (the large covers are about $200 a pop) are all brand spanking new.

I believe the thinking is that inside the vacuum, a plasma will be submitted to an electromagnetic field with the hopes that the field creates a point of compression and, ideally, thermonuclear fusion

Or, it's a time machine. Who knows- I'm just paid to turn wrenches.

SCIENCE!
It is a time machine...

I work at a major Fusion lab on the west coast (like you, on the periphery except I work with paper not metal) and the physicists here keep pushing the date for realistic fusion reactors 20-30 years into the future. And it's been that way since the inception ('55) here.

The complexity of the reaction and the means to control it for even a few seconds is immense, I see the math and science all the time and understand bupkis other than the sheer enormity of the effort.

Nice artsy/fartsy pics BTW.

Nice Beemer, Bimmer or whatever you car guys call them. E30 convertibles were always my favorite BMW, followed closely by the 2002's.

Now get it out of the fire lane.

The view over Wanchai, from the pantry at my office.
Lots of construction cranes. The economy is ticking along nicely!
