LION - LION 4 teardown

Beast autopsy

The LION 4 reactor disassembled and looked at with microscopy.

Teardown was recorded live on Sun 7th November 2021 @ 22:00 CET

At just past the 1h 40m mark, I break the core free from the copper oxide melt-down zone and in the process, split a series of bubbles in half.

Shortly afterwards I start noticing a pungent smell. I first suggested Fluorine, but I thought it was not sufficiently irritating for that, then chlorine - but really it was not quite like the smell of a pool, so I thought a little more and lastly I suggested Bromine, that felt right as it does smell bleach like, moreover it is brown.

Now there is a reversible reaction between the two copper oxides and Oxygen

4CuO <> 2Cu2O + O2

and there are reactions with Copper Oxide and Alumina Phases.

But I’m pretty sure I would not have smelt O2!

Looking for potential reactions using MFMP Parkhomov reaction calculator

So then I thought, why not see what the parkhomov tables predict. Based on my sense of smell, I suspected the room temperature gas was Bromine, so I put that as the target and obviously Copper as the heavier of the two elements in the fusion or exchange reactions to see if there was any possibility of a potential reaction. Here is the results:

Fusion

Two to Two reactions

Of course, there are other reactions that don’t produce bromine based of Cold Neutrinos, O, N and Cu - but they don’t smell like bromine! The most likely of these four reactions is between 65Cu and 18O, but most of all natural oxygen is 16O, so where does all the 18O come from? Well we know the LION reactor has D and O in the D2O in the core, so what if D and O were to fuse?

Interestingly, the other active isotopes can be made via D reactions with N (from the air) and O. Interestingly Fluorine also produced, but 18O needs to be made first.

Comments from LION

“The foil in the tube is stainless steel, there were 20 plus diapads per tube.”

“This experiment was NOT done with 1 active tube and 1 control tube because I was interested in investigating the interaction of 2 live tubes.”

“Please can you do to tube 2 what you have done to tube 1 and see where the main active region is.”

“This investigation / replication seems a great success and certainly reinforces my suspicion that there is cross talk between the 2 tubes.”

“The second tube should contain the stainless steel foil too but if it does not then you will find the diapads.”

Eight and a half day emission spectra

The 8.5 day LION 4 core 2 (RHS) sample above does not look much different from a 5 day background sample (green line). With smoothing at 1 there appeared to be a slight deviation at the high energy end.

In conclusion, the LION4 core 2 (RHS) section 8.5 da sample does not appear to show any significant emission spectra above background.
