Please note that the decision for Recovery Act funding was made by the Energy Task Force which is above the navy. It was an OSD level decision. this includes the funding plus ups (which presumably was made from the un-assigned reserve funds from the total budget). The commmitee would have reviewed t...

Sorry, I wasn't clear in reference to chaotic control. Brain faster than fingers. I was thinking of alternate control methods per esempio Stochastic Control. If you can't control the actual feedback, set boundaries and let the system wander within. I fully agree that this is a multilayer and integra...

Chris - To further the point (from: http://www.defenselink.mil/recovery/plans_reports/2009/april/DoD_ARRA_First_Report_to_Congress-24_Mar_09.pdf); "The Components submitted multiple energy-related RDT&E candidate projects, studies and proposals for review in five broad areas listed below. C...

Chris - I remember that discussion, and still disagree. The fundamental point here, is that there has been a peer review for WB7, and the results justified a substantial increase in navy project support. The post peer review contracting has also implied that things are going on that are not well und...

Check out pages 11 o f73 and 12 of 73. Seems that some folks in DOD are very satistified with results. Enough to stick it in a high vis document for the bean counters and OSD Level program managers. These Rapid Developement items get flashy slides and "This is the business!" statements whe...

DeltaV - Not so much on topic, but a lot of background theory papers can be found on ASKMAR, which he pulled from DTIC. http://www.dtic.mil/ If you search Polywell on DTIC, you can find a lot of the background research Dr Bussard did to set the stage for today. Polywell seems to be an careful operat...

Dan - that was it. Should have searched "pressure cooker" instead of "microwave"! The linked pics you have at the archive show the plasma forms better. It would be cool to do that experiment again, but with (for argument's sake) x8 :wink: stronger magnets and compare the pics. I ...

For clarity, let's remember that the Whiffleball is in fact a reference to the Magnetic Field produced by the MAGRID. The Plamsmoid is actually in general terms the geometric opposite of the field. Think of the magnetic field as your hand, and the plasmoid as a ball of playdough you are squeezing. O...

Dr Nebel seems to post about once a quarter. So it seems he is more or less due again timewise. But he also seems keen to jump in on a discussion here or there in the past if something grabs his interest. For the value of his participation in the forum, I firmly believe that the discussions and deba...
