Great find, and great news too!
The more people/pubblic institutions works on this technology the more data we will get to better understand if the polywell is indeed the technological breaktrought that we all belive is.

I should stop typing posts during meeting breaks, hurry is not good while typing. Yes, I was meaning that the Tetramer are connected to the Trimers trough an universal relation. See page 2 of the pink I posted: http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/0903/0903.1276v2.pdf What we have here is a new theor...

This is what we will have to clearly understand now. The beauty of this theory is that it shows that it is merely the addition of the third particle that bounds toghether the other two (which are not bound). This theory and the related experiments might lead finally to a single formula to describe a...

Before anything else we need to understand what gravity is exactly and how is generated. I believe that when we will have that knowledge it will be the start of a new era for the Human race. I would not dismiss Heim theory also. I am still trying to grasp the fundamental concept and main logic passa...

No need, we can just build a Calabi–Yau manifold (in 6 dimensions obviously) and this will prove the String "Theory" with ease.

I'll bring my welding machine, who brings the beer? :D

Yes, I know him from his blog, but I didn't read that book. String theory (which we should call String HYPOTHEIS and not Theory) looks also to me just a way to discuss about nothing, as nothing out of it can be predicted or tested. I mean, for what is worth they could spend their time theorizing abo...

Reactive nitrogen used in fertilizer production and the majority of nitrates is manufactured by fractional distillation of plain air which accounts for more than 99% of world nitrogen production. Nitrogen is taken from air, injected in ground and rejected as Nitrogen at the end of the cycle, no Nit...

This is still a theoretical work, so I would not hold my breath for some breakthrough news until until we have some experimental data to read. On a different note, is it my impression or lately there has been a large increase in "theoretical" models in many fields and a parallel decrease in raw expe...

This is a bunch of crap, the article clearly forgets to mention that all the nitrogen extracted to manufacture nitrogen fertilizers is in fact extracted from the AIR. Reactive nitrogen, nitrates, are not the same as atmospheric nitrogen. djolds1, AGW doesn't affect the ecological system as much as ...

If you use a so called "lightbulb" design, then you can make a gas core reactor based engine that does not leak reactor fuel either... Fused Silica is fragile. While it can be considered for in-space engines, it would be very troublesome to develop for Earth-Orbit-Earth applications. From my point ...

Last review I read about this new class of superconductors was that this transition temperatures was limited to some "parts" of the compound, and that more research was needed to validate that the same was valid for an arbitrary length of the compound. Looks like this last validation is still a theo...

Giorgio, money will pour on you from every place to solve the 90% engineering issue. You must work for the government if you think money will solve everything.

Manufacturing is just an engineering issues. If you have a 90% reject rate, "just an engineering issue" doesn't quite hack it. I see someone took a 1/4 million dollar bet on it this afternoon, so I'm not lonely. If you have a 90% rejection rate than you have a 10% working prototypes and a 90% engin...
