I developed an algorithm that will compress a gigobyte of data into one bit. Unfortunately it will only compress a specific gigobyte of data.

What if we encouraged hostile countries to develop Polywell?

Why keep secret Polywell technology from countries hostile to the US? It seems to me that Polywell funding and research is a bit anemic. If a country such as North Korea decided to develop Polywell for bragging rights, we'd have a lot of political pressure in this country to fully fund Polywell.

It was a nice country while it lasted. I hope you're wrong about that, they may be our only hope. Its unlikely that any third party...

I think that the Republicans can make substantial gains as early as 2010 if they start now to embrace economic sanity as their first principle...

Re: Polywell = Navy Advantage

... i`m very inclined to believe that if the polywell is successful it will remain a secret for years to come. It could very well give the US Navy more of an advantage(fuel savings = more quantity), and so act to strengthen the US`s power over the seas - not that the US needs it as it already domin...
