Re: House to Vote on Fusion Research and Development

I see, so it might just become a victim of a political skirmish between the two parties just because one proposed it even if the other party is not against it in principle. This is one of the reasons that always made me think that politics sucks. Crossing fingers for it to get under the attention ra...

Re: House to Vote on Fusion Research and Development

Correct me if I am wrong, I made a quick search and i found that the senate appropriation subcommittee that should be responsible for the discussion of this bill is the "Energy and water development committee" that is under Lamar Alexander chairmanship who seems quite supportive of fusion technology...

Re: House to Vote on Fusion Research and Development

Excellent news, founding wise this looks like the single most important event that has happened in the last 10 years.
Finally there seems to be a light at the end of this endless tunnel of waiting.

Re: Mach Effect progress

Latest from Mike McCulloch: https://twitter.com/memcculloch/status/1308314973534384129 Important to keep you honestly up to date on here. Just received an email from Tajmar that says the force he found was out-gassing from adhesive tape! So we're back to one positive, one negative. So nice to learn...

Re: House to Vote on Fusion Research and Development

That's an amazing amendment.
If it passes the way it is it might really revolutionize the whole alternative fusion research sector.

I hope lot of people will lobby for this.

Re: I Have Been Occupied

I'm almost fully recovered from my 26 May 2019 heart attack. I still believe Polywell needs funding. I have no idea how to make it happen. Didn't know that also. I was actually wondering if you got involved into some research as I didn't see anymore posts from you, than i read this.... Hope it was ...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Shawyer as an theorist yes; though he may or may night be a competent experimentalist. But what about DARPA greenlighting a phase 2 version of their research into EmDrive? Implies they must have gotten something positive from the Nov'18 study. Surely DARPA has cred with you? DARPA is just doing the...

Re: Mach Effect progress

McCulloch is also talking to a consortium in California who are creating their own Horizon Drive experiment. This group includes the University of Southern California and an organization, which he is only allowed to describe as a ‘major aerospace company.’ Their goal is to demonstrate the effect “v...

Re: Mach Effect progress

If i remember correctly DARPA's results was also negative/inconclusive, but I might be confusing them with some other lab. EMdrive has been tested from half a dozen labs so far in Europe China and USA and all of them didn't find the claimed effect or pinpointed any anomaly to a known physical process.

Re: Mach Effect progress

Right now they could make good use of Tajmar help if they kept contact and good relationships with him.
He is quite excellent in pinpointing external or internal causes of interference on data logs while keeping enough open mind to evaluate the experimental results in an objective way.

Re: Mach Effect progress

What would a cost comparison look like between, say, the time and resources Martin Tajmar and his lab spent on testing, and simply building a cube sat that could definitively demonstrate whether on not the effect works by virtue of being out in space. Maybe beg a place on one of Elon Musk's Starlin...

Re: Is it back?

I believe is because mainly there is not much to post about at the moment.
