Re: EMC2 news

The intent is to have the public answer on the final requirement in 2 to 3 years. This is a realistic projection based on considerations for how this answer will be generated, which is not really the way conventional plasma research is being done. There was kind of a process epiphany which occured, ...

Re: EMC2 news

To be more clear, WB-8 has performed its functions for EMC2, and they don't need it anymore. They have learned what they needed to learn from that work. Thus, they are willing to part ways, and believe it should end up in a museum. As a means to support that, and provide a source of funding for some...

Re: SpaceX News

Given there is no two line for track USA-280, it can be fairly safe to assume there is nothing being tracked at this point. Most likely, payload didn't make it based on public statements by SpaceX that Falcon 9 did it's job inferring something went wrong that was not Falcon 9 related. For whatever r...

Re: Go Navy!

Nope. While there is a responsibility at the command level, the real root lays above them in my opinion. However, I don't expect any time soon for C3F, ATGPAC, SURFPAC, or USFF to fall on their culpable swords.

Re: EMC2 news

Let us say in the $250K to $500k range to start. I am not sure of the crowd funding mechanics regarding larger seekings (re. shares or equity concerns) in the millions. However, do any of you think that $5 million is achievable, and what would that mean to the company regarding the relationship with...

Re: EMC2 news

If EMC2 were to seek crowd funding, what would be the best platform to do this?

Re: SpaceX News

Meanwhile, the real question is when will Zuma launch... ? In any event, the early build Falcons are flight cycle limited. The reflowns were only designed for a 2x or 3x flight profile. Thus, essentially, his original reflowns are now 'expended(ish)'. The data they are collecting from them post flig...

Maybe it was a miss, in the opening salvo of our new interstellar war, of which we are currently unaware.

Re: EMC2 news

Remember that fundamentally you need two pieces for this puzzle. Confinement. Heating. As I know, no-one has figured out understanding of implementation of convex confinement except EMC2. ITER functions on concave confinement, which in turn introduces plasma stability drama which can be resolved(ish...

Re: EMC2 news

WB-8 is a pretty specialized chamber. It would take some funds to re-purpose it. Doable, however, maybe not practical.

Re: EMC2 news

Currently, all the previous machines are in storage. The current effort, as noted, is on simulation. Once this effort is completed, then the focus will shift back to building a physical unit to compare to the simulation findings.
The goal is the sim work will be done this coming year.
