I have made my way through Pushkin, Tolstoy and Solzhenitzyn and I if just get my hands on the full article, I'll give the thermonuclear tech talk a chance to.

Did your son manage to come up with something? Translating the russian language is often a lot more work than one might expect. So if he needs a helping hand, just ask me.

Is there any acknowledged physics at all behind this "dense plasma fokus"? Or are we dealing with a bunch of howling lunatics in urgent need of heavy medication?

Overview article on the latest FRC developments

I found this article on the latest FRC developments. Unfortunately it is incomplete and in russian. http://www.vimi.ru/applphys/appl-10/10-1/10-1-9r.htm I'll translate the abstract for you. The article is published in a journal called "Applied physics- Journal on science and technology". A...

Sorry, but the party line is that the electrons are magnetically confined. At least that would work, albeit poorly. What you describe will not work at all. Perhabs this is an awfully stupid question, but why is this so? I thought the idea of this contraption was to have a positive grid to confine t...

I still think Art Carlson (or that other guy Slough) should do popular lecture on the FRC on Google video. If he thinks it's worth having. If done in a sensible and appropriate manor, there is no scientific honour or credibility to loose on popularizing one's results. Quite to the contrary, it may r...

I just enjoy the mental image of fanatical fusion cultists screaming about their respective technologies at each others' facilities. Peer review would be much more entertaining as a contact sport. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven However: Why amuse your...

I disagree with your physics version of efficient market hypothesis: that everything worth inventing has been invented and that anything that hasn't been funded isn't worth funding. Didn't say that. But there seems to be no shortage of ideas on how to make fusion energy happen. You can't fund them ...
