I am actually a little vague here myself, there is a point around 2400*f where we start creating the NO, NO2, NO3s that are a further worry to the health of this Planet
and ALL her Children, 3000 degrees without Oxygen supplemental augmentation is probably impossible but also not really needed, which is not to say a specific
region can't reach those temperatures as an isolated region- possible forging of iron !! Certainly a Rocket Mass Heater that quickly reaches temperatures in the low
2000 *F such be sufficient for 97% of All RMHs ever Built ! For the craft - Big AL !
