  • OT...Z-Machine

    I was looking up deionizer in in the google toolbar and it was giving me other things to look at starting with dei.. I clicked on deionized water and went to wikipedia to read about it and clicked the link to the Z-Machine. This machine generates x-rays for testing materials at extreme temperature and pressure, and uses 80 times the worlds power output for a billionths of a second. Pretty neat stuff I thought, just couldnt imagine being near this thing when it discharged. Thought you guys might like to read about it, maybe not.

    It's a very large and impressive machine if you visit it in person. The capacitors are so large that it's easier for the guys servicing them to wear a wetsuit and airline than to drain the tanks to service them dry.
