Re: General Fusion in the news

Speaking about TriAlpha, yes, boron is a huge bar to jump, but I consider TA a success if they can reach sustained fusion conditions with deuterium. But that is me. I imagine the C-2W machine might show that, or near enough. I think C-2W will ignite the race to commercial for all parties. The high ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

Comparing the different fusion companies is rather difficult as they are in different stages and in some cases target different goal. TAE has a much longer road ahead because they aim for pB11 compared to GF which aims for DT. TAE has been able to rebuild and upgrade their devices with a fast pace l...

Re: General Fusion in the news

What mvanwink5 meant is that the next device by GF will be designed to last for only a limited amount of compression cycles to save money. A real power plant in the GF design would of course need to be able to compress the plasma continuously with ~1 Hz for many years. When pondering on positions in...
