Re: Lockheed Martin’s Compact Fusion Reactor

The T4B can produce one megawatt of energy. The second prototype, the TX, is 18 meters long, seven meters in diameter, and about 2,000 tons in weight. The TX can produce 200 megawatts of energy. Where do these energy numbers come from, exactly? Anybody know? Are they really that far along that they...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Ok. To the Trump folks here, I hope you've had a great time this week. You got to party, and gloat, and laugh at those sad wimpy liberals. You bought a great fantasy: American Greatness, and Jail the Bitch. About that last thing: like most things Trump says, he didn't really mean it. He said it to g...

No, they've never had anything, and they've still got nothing. Life's too short to waste on that nonsense.

Re: Article on laser driven pB11 fusion

This is interesting. Aside from the challenges of direct conversion though, I wonder about the effects of repeated 10,000 tesla magnetic pulses on any nearby metal...

Re: Boeing Laser Fusion Engine Patent Accepted

At first blush I thought this was something to compete with Northrup's reactor, but this Boeing thing seems bizarre and baffling -- an April Fool's joke. So, you're going to do like 100 MW of D-D or D-T fusion with no heavy shielding a few meters from hundreds of passengers?

I don't get the bit about Seaborg. Wikip says he passed away in '99. Tri-Alpha goes back that far?

Re: Aviation Week on the Lockheed Skunkworks CFR

Hello all. Do I understand correctly that this machine relies on heating to rev the ions up to the kinetic energies needed? There's no IEC type grid or or virtual grid, right?

Yes. Greater energy density = more mischief when things go wrong.
