It may not hurt to try contacting the new DOE secretary as

well.

The guys credentials look good, if he can be convinced this is worth trying, it might go a long way in getting the President and Congress to consider it.

With the new energy secretary being a physicist

who is pro nuclear power I think we may just get the support we need.

Could these forces somehow related to the POPS effect?

Could these observed forces somehow be related to the POPS effect? I realize both are rf based, could this research along with the POPS research taken together tell us more about how rf fields interact with plasmas at a more fundamental level.

The only way the coils can cool is through the leads, which is real slow. The cure is real simple: make the coil pulses as short as you can and monitor the temperature in the coils by measuring their resistance. Works like a charm.


Does this rule out WB-7 working in continuous operating mode?

I think the risk of proliferation could be mitigated by proper independent oversight. I would think the IAEA would be capable of monitoring fusion facilities to ensure the reactors were not used for this purpose.

I have heard the funeral will be on the 13th. Is there any way we as a group could send flowers or something along those lines.

I guess I'm not that interested. Fact is it's unproven technology, the physics is rather obscure, and Bussard isn't talking. So what your implying is Dr. Bussard is hiding something all because you aren't interested enough to take the time to understand the concepts presented to you by several memb...

I hold great hope your speculation turns out to be correct. The fact energy issues are getting so much press lately could certainly work to our advantage, what better spotlight than a presidential race. Framing the situation in that context really puts an amount of pressure to have WB7 be completed ...

I wonder if Tom would know much about Alex Klein. If they worked at EMC2
at the same time perhaps he could shed some light.

I wouldn't go far as they alone funding the thing. But I'm willing to bet that we can get support from them. Yeah that is what I had figured as well. I wasn't trying to imply they would fund the whole thing, but if they were able to raise that much money for a TV show I would think we could get som...

Actually I think it's a great idea. Several years ago when Enterprise was canceled a fan group raised millions of dollars just to try and keep the show on the air. If you can form the right message for that group I think there would be money to be had.
