I also tried to search something about these guys and I couldn´t find anything. No papers, no patent number, no references in the web. I contact them with an email and asked about the differences with a Polywell and they answered me that their concept "is very different from Bussard's polywell, basi...

Nice story, although if this is the future I wouldn´t like to live it. I prefer a future with a lovely summer night walking and just watching the star to get relaxed, or an spring afternoon in a forest camping with some friends...
Does somebody know anything about these guys: http://www.fpgeneration.com/index.html ? They state to have developed and quasi spherical IEC fusion reactor with POPS technology. If you read their website it is interesting to see that they were working for Bussard in EMC2 some years ago. They also use...
What they have done better is having 2 papers in Science magazine (1997). http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/278/5342/1419?ijkey=9e666b73aebc2474811e1c2d5914082efefb9bd1&keytype2=tf_ipsecsha (Colliding Beam Fusion Reactor ; Science 21 November 1997: Vol. 278. no. 5342, pp. 1419 - 1422; D...
I agree completely with you. A good website will help a lot. Please read this thread where we discussed this subject before: http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=90 By now only askmar.com and strout.net are pages dedicated to Polywell but they are more a list of links that a concept of a ...
It looks interesting. The kind of webpage these guys have is one of the things I would try to improve in the EMC2 company. Their web seem quite complete with text, pictures, documents, news, list of member team,.... If you are an external potential big investor in which company you will invest if yo...

I have just read an interview to Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft). As well as being quite interested in the fusion energy he also suggests that Bill Gates maybe is also interested. (See Evan Ratliff’s excellent interview of Paul Allen in Discover Magazine, April 2007 issue.) : http://discovermag...

Propagan is a great idea to spread the news. The difficult thing is try to get the good results of this campaign without being classified as "smoke sellers". We have to take care of not being mixed with cold fusion and all these stuff We should remember that the only kind of investor that will solve...

I try to be realistic. Enthusiasm is fine and is a powerful engine for this enterprise. The equilibrium between being enthusiastic and rational is the key point. In my opinion too many people try to see a far future ahead. Although p-b11 may be reachable the first generation of Polywell (if successf...
