Re: California funding Polywell research!

I want to be sure everyone knows about the news in this thread — in brief, there are reports that California is going to fund Dr. Bussard's organization for a "multi-million dollar" research effort.. Unfortunately untrue. :( http://powerandcontrol.blogspot.com/2007/07/fusion-false-alarm.h...

Re: Cutting Costs?

Any realistic avenues for cutting costs to develop the polywell? Wrong way to think about it. If there is proof of the pudding (continuous operation of WB7-x). The big bucks will flood in. Not a problem. Let us focus on raising the $5 to $15 million to do WB7x right. That shouldn't be too hard. I h...

Cutting Costs?

Any realistic avenues for cutting costs to develop the polywell? I'll use 150 million USD as the baseline - the DD polywell. IMO its a less risky fuel cycle, not to mention cheaper. Prove the DD reactor and the 200 MUSD for pB11 will materialize. Acquiring capital equipment at distress or scrap pric...

The US Navy knows full well what its funding, and the electrolytic cell people do seem to have finally proven the existence of some sort of anomalous nuclear fusion process. I personally don't think so, at least not without the hint of either truly incompetent administration or a black project hidi...
