court case 2006

This is probably old, old, old news to long-term Polywell-watchers, but I've only recently found this little bit of EMC2 history, so I thought I would share it....

For instance, MIT might argue the point of the first electronic computer(s). http://alum.mit.edu/pages/sliceofmit/2009/08/12/project-whirlwind/ The incorporation of solid state components, video displays, RAM, etc is where I see the true foundation in real computers. Thank god for the Cold War, for...

I read it as: This is going to cost more and take longer. We are not going to ask another company to take over because that will entail even more time and money. We have done our due diligence to ensure that this project has a chance of delivering. We want this to deliver a product, so we should con...

And I presume that you are the author of this book?
I think you should declare an interest before urging us to buy it to send to our political masters.

Is it the case that there are now sufficient de...

Don't hold your breath.
The previous year's Q2 report was late, I recall.

I expect the report will be along the lines of:

"The behaviour of the system is being explored."

I am trying not to get too excited. I think that far too much is being read into a very cautiously worded report. The progress reports now look like this: 2010-09-30 WB8 is fully under construction, progress made on Theoretical modeling of the Polywell. 2010-12-31 WB-8 device construction is complet...

Are you placing the peltier so that the hot side is not inside the vacuum? Yes, I was thinking of long thin thermocouple piles so that one end was in the coil and the other end poked out of the vacuum vessel and could then be cooled by, for example, a water flow. There could then be a hedgehog of l...

Just a suggestion

I'm not a physicist, so please ignore this if it is too naive:
why not shift the heat out of the coil using the Peltier effect?

I expect that the effect is too weak to move the amounts of heat produced in your coil though.

I predicted: 16th December 2008 Reviews can take a long time, but I hope for results this year. I claim the prize! Alan Boyle says: http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/12/16/1718741.aspx Nebel told me today. Although he couldn't go into the details, he said the verdict was positive. "Th...
