It's a simi packed with equipment. That's how its transportable. how do you post a pic, I'll open the back and get one.

Yes - no need to read a manual or anything, just turn it on and jobs a good 'un. As if.

No user manuel, but there is a lot of documentation with it, which we used to figure out how to power it on. On page three of this thread I've quoted it a bit, including word for word descriptions of how it works, in techno talk.

OK. Sounds to me like one of the flayrods 'as gone out of skew on't treadle. Do stop me if I am being too technical.

...uses metallic hydrogen ...


It almost certainly does not.



Yes it does, the documentation has schematics and arrows and stuff. It says right on one of them: "Soft iron core with super conducting metallic wire with (L)Hydrogen thermal mitigation" That's science talk for using low temperatures to turn hydrogen into metal. I ain't no dumdick.


You might mean "using high pressure" to turn hydrogen into a metal (metallic hydrogen).

So I will reiterate that I very highly doubt that this telescope is using metallic hydrogen, because metallic hydrogen is extremely difficult for us to create with our current technology and techniques.

Hydrogen even at absolute zero -- the lowest temperature possible -- would not be metallic at normal pressures. Freezing hydrogen can be done, but that does not make it metallic. High pressures of maybe close to a half Billion times greater than normal earth pressure is required. in 2017, The first successful attempt ever at creating liquid hydrogen in a lab required about 480 Million kilopascals (KPa) of pressure. Earth air pressure is about 101 KPa at sea level.

Secondly, people has just recently (a little more than a year ago) proved it is even possible to create metallic hydrogen on Earth. And hardly any of the stuff (if any) exists outside of even the most cutting-edge labs doing research into the stuff. I think it's safe to say there is none currently being used for a telescope.

Thirdly, your stated that the documentation says:
"Soft iron core with super conducting metallic wire with (L)Hydrogen thermal mitigation".
However, that does not say metallic hydrogen is being used. All that says is that hydrogen (probably liquid) is being used to keep the wire cold so it can be a superconductor. That's what is meant by "thermal mitigation". Nothing in that blurb you posted from the documatation says anythging about using metallic hydrogen.

jesting aside, i'm assuming you mounted the device externally away from ir interference, plugged into 110/240/single phase/3phase, and flipped the on button. what about the interface software? you had permissions within the software package no log-in?

What about the Flux Capacitor? Is it powered by Plutonium?

So let me see if I've got this straight...

The World's only known derivation of Metallic Hydrogen, the Holy Grail of high pressure physics, a specimen so small it had to be examined under an electron microscope, and was so difficult to contain it was lost in 2017 for reasons which cannot be fully explained by by some of the most advanced physicists on the planet to date...

Yet...the OP has a 'telescope', which he's transporting around in the back of a truck no less, which uses Metallic Hydrogen to analyze stars, billions of light years away...and he doesn't even have the User's Manual, but him and a buddy can set this thing up and successfully analyze what essentially amounts to a pulsar at the edge of the known Universe????

Forgive me, but I'm having a bit of a hard time with this one!!

ETA - This, from an OP who openly acknowledges his "job" is to use his cell phone to take pictures of schematics of other people's complex scientific equipment and upload these pictures of schematics to his "company" computer. (By any other standard this would be known as "Industrial Espionage", but we won't go there...(just yet.))

When you put it like that it does sound a bit far fetched.

No, no, no...you're not getting it!!

He said...

The "and stuff" is the key thing here! Us mere Earthlings have failed to grasp the epic and wide ranging scientific relevance of..."and stuff" in our rudimentary computational models of theoretical physics to date! Didn't you know that???

AND, when you insert the word "arrows" in front of "and stuff", well, then all bets are off!

Sheesh!

So basically you're hauling around a 1991 6 cylinder Fiat in your truck then, right?

No. I think you should take another look at that photograph. This things all that man.

You sure? I may have misread it I suppose.

Its self powered, and not that kind of computer. Looks like a calculator screen. The official technical term for the device is "Photonic energy amplifier for orbital telescope" It sees things in space, far out right?

Does it have any of these components?

1. Bead condenser (model # AB-619)
2. Cathermin tube with an indium complex of +4
3. Intensifier disk
