Interesting........

I'd love to see EEstor actually have something out on the market, so I could buy it and take it apart.

Robert Rapier has covered this issue extensively. His conclusions (which I mostly agree with) are skeptical and only slightly hopeful.

The Enterprise visits a dead planet

From a Pro-Thorium Reactor Blog: http://thoriumenergy.blogspot.com/2009/06/enterprise-visits-dead-planet.html As the away teams reported back to the Starship Enterprise, the reports were all the same.

How about when you mix genes roughly at random with selective breeding? Who knows what could happen? Or suppose they irradiated the genetic material in the hopes of a useful variation? Hell, what if natural cosmic rays do it? We are so screwed. Our only hope of salvation is to sacrifice 30 million ...

No news is good news?

It's been kinda slow here for awhile now. Has anyone heard from Dr. Nebel? I imagine not hearing from him is a good sign; he's busy and doesn't have time to argue nuances on the forum. Even if it's a good sign, I'm still dying to hear about any progress that might be happening this year. Any gossip?

Not to be TOO picky, but your subject line and your question were TOTALLY different, leading to a cognative diss... oh heck, it were confusing. What did you REALLY want to ask? LOL, good point.

Which design will be the first to break even?

That is, which will lead to a net power reactor first?

What is MAST and how is it different from ITER?

Old news, but I just ran across it and was hoping someone here could clear things up for me.

1) What is MAST? Just a mini-tokamak?
2) Does anyone here think it has any potential?
