Good idea to get publicity. Many people read this articles and some of then can become interested in Polywell.

The universe haven´t had a Polywell during millions of years. We don´t need now to be in a hurry to get a 4 months shorter developing schedule. Let EMC2 to work quietly. Step by step .

As I said you in June in NasaSpaceFlight forum you don´t know yet what the fusion gain is. Fusion gain, Q = Energy output / Energy input The real energy produced by Polywell is 100 MW: some wasted as heat and some useful as electricity In your cases Q = 100 MW / 25 MW+ 0.000111 MW ( 0.111KW used for...

We should be patient . We are expecting good results in just a few months. And experimentation doesn´t work that way. The time is not 100% effective: you can not plan your time because always there are setbacks, problems with the equipment, sensor miscalibrated ...etc... In Dr. Bussard´s website he ...

Search engine

The info is growing day by day into this forum. It will be great if you can add (if possible) a text box to do word-searching inside this forum. You can use the tool powered by Google for particular sites ( site:talk-polywell.org ).

Is not easier to transport the electricity to the ground, and later get the water electrolyzed?

I mean the meaning of "Evangelical". I haven´t seen this word in any technical paper yet. You could be religious but it is not necessary to include any spiritual word inside this forum. I like movies but I will never put a name as "Benhur discussion forum" in this site.

Helium condenser. This world is amazing !!! Why do you need helium in liquid state? Helium is not present in the air, in case of you have any doubt. Therefore it should be refilled periodically. What about these turbines with strong winds? And the wires? The wind load will be tremendous for those wi...

I agree with Shubedo... This is a technical forum. Evangelical is out of place here. He is not talking about the turbines, but you have reacted as a fanatics against him.

For an estimation of the electricity cost of a Polywell reactor you should use a average plant life ( 20-30 years). I think that 80-90% of Polywell installed equipment can be have a longer life since it has not mechanical parts . If you use a Polywell unit life of 40-45 years with a certain amount o...

You are free to believe it or not. I assure you that a new contract with the US Navy is already working. But the import thing is that the research will go on not matter what you think. Although it would be great if you trust us. Look at other side: there has not been any communication telling this i...

I agree with Nanos. Any investment in fusion is indirectly good for Polywell. If all countries start a "race" to get fusion energy maybe some of them will bet for tokamaks, some for lasers and maybe some for IEC fusion. I compare this with a snowball: we have to help to start rolling on and it will ...

I think we don´t need to search B11 in the sea water. The 80% of the total amount of boron is the isotope B11 (the rest is B10) , so the land should be plenty of it.

Which kind of extracted elements are you referring in this question? Give us some examples and its utility.
