Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Look, I will say it again, the big milestone for TAE is proving the science and that is supposed to be done with Norman, their current machine, and their target is 2019 for that. Furthermore, 'PROOF' is a high standard. Before the 'proof' there is evidence, and as you can see TAE is confident based ...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

It was my understanding that the 'science' would be proven with Norman with a target of 2019, that the next prototype, Copernicus, would be used to nail down the engineering details for a commercial machine. I think that until the experiments on 'Norman' are concluded and published, the 2023 is just...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

I trust cost analysis these days as far as I can throw my trailer because of green power advocate lying. That is not to say I distrust you, it is just the people that write these analysis reports. Green power is a crooked business and heavily subsidized. Coal is dependent on the location of the plan...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Solar? Got trees, snow, you get feet of snow and need heat? On your roof maintenance for suburb, and for cities not enough roof space, and for industry not enough power density or 24 your supply? LOL

Imaginary power source. I get a kick out of the so called green proponents.

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

A modern coal fired plant has pulverizers, primary air fans, forced and induced draft fans, SCR's, SO2 scrubbers with limestone pulverizers pumps etc., precipitators, a coal field, stacker/ reclaimer coal handling systems, boiler which can be 200 ft tall, not to mention the 500 foot tall stacks to g...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

General Fusion also publishes their research. Both TAE & GF are impressive operations. TAE said, I forgot to state the key point I wanted to really make :P , and that is that they said the science will be demonstrated with Norman in 2019 (that is their target). C2-U was their make or break machi...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Also the fusion plants can power 24 hour life, industry, require power systems. Solar is just fine for rural, daylight rise and shine life.

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

I would rather think that the problem with developing nations is the support staff expertise and parts. Fossil systems can be quite simple or drop in packages. At some point though the Fusion plants will be boilerplated so to speak. Commercialization is one thing, proof of science is another. Proof ...

Re: EMC2 news

China gets free tech... now there is a man tough to negotiate with. I bet China would do the same deal for his rocket tech too... Maybe Helion could do that deal with their fusion tech?

Re: EMC2 news

Yes, asymmetric tariffs and trade barriers against evil Americans, forced tech transfers are necessary to be liked. Reality sucks.

Re: General Fusion in the news

I can't see what else GF has to share as they basically have all the pieces. What they need is a device large enough to flesh out the engineering details for the commercial machine and prove it. The only thing left is money to do it? No one else that I know of is in that position. On the other hand,...

Re: General Fusion in the news

Thank you Crowberry,
Nice details on the compression plans. Now they need the money to 'go ahead with a 10% Lawson criteria' build. I suppose that once they get that we will hear it, then maybe a project timeline. Looks promising to me.

Re: EMC2 news

Maybe now EMC2 can attract deep pocket investors to expedite their prospects. I may be reading General Fusion wrong, but it seems they are slow in attracting enough cash to build their next 'proof of economic fusion' device, their demo plant. Recent $49 million from the Canadian Gruberment is just a...
