Actually any reasonably competent Naval Nuke Operator could design the test reactor and WB-100. Especially given the collected instructional material and spread sheets. Still, measured data on all previous experiments would still give us a more solid basis and argument. At this stage there are way ...

One step at a time. We need the results of WB-7x before we go on to WB-100. We need to see if we can make use of POPS gain. Lots a stuff. Steady state control. Gas injection. B11 injection. We need to take giant steps. One baby step at a time. That's why I think we should try D-T or D-D first, and ...

Really. pB11 is not hard. Net power is hard. pB11 burning is not.
Great. Except we want to do net power.

I agree with most of what your saying, except you need something to sell to get funding! Ermmm...a promising fusion concept that with the right business can make one very, very, very, very rich? If you had just 10 second pitch to sell the idea of polywell fusion technology to potential investor or ...

Does anybody know if the information blockade EMC2 was on in the last decade is still active with re-activating the contract?

Everything about Polywell on the net: http://www.strout.net/info/science/polywell/ But really, the best way would be contacting EMC2 and Mr.McCain together, so EMC2 could show what they have. Results of viability could be found out within his first year as president, and the future would praise his ...

What I'm saying is Tokamak fusion is the most funded both by government and academic, the $40 million TriAlpha has raised so far is just a drop in the bucket as compared to Tokamak research Did you know that Tokamak research compromises 85% of USA research into fusion? It's good to be a thorough an...

From my understanding, superconducters (that because they have electricity flowing trough them, are electromagnets) are ultimately unavoidable in the long run, however for the first demo plant and experiments, liquid nitrogen cooled copper wires would be enough.

I'm a moderator; what would we gain from appointing someone else? Additional moderation? EDIT ADD -NOTE: Also, an extra moderator would serve as a back-up when you are unavailable. What additional measures would you suggest? There are two simple security measures that are effective: first, image-re...

What is the chemical extraction process for separating U233 from Th-232? Are there fission products in the mix? None. U233 is breeded from Th-232 by neutron bombardment. U232 is also produced, which is not a problem with power plants, but a problem for weapons. The reactions are: Th-232 + n -> Th-2...

Then I think we are stuck. If we are trying to garner support from the public. No one will donate (as is happening now) to something that does not catch their interest or they believe in, so we will be stuck with tokamak research that the public does believe in. Actually, no. There are other fusion...

A few other questions come into mind: Q: What are the possible dangers of using Polywell? Would it blow up like a fission plant? A: The short answer is, no, it would not blow up like a fission plant. However, this sadly does not prevent it from blowing up altogether. There is enormous amount of ener...

Well we could have an exclusively made model of the WB-7 with a plaque signed by Dr. Bussard. We could get televised by youtube. I imagine if we could get a sponsor who makes cast metal models to donate his work, this should easily be doable. This is science and engineering, not a gameshow. WB-7 is...

We need to guarantee a prize. A real one, not just the false honour of flipping a switch. Like a money prize. Although, if we can gather up enough money that could be considered a prize, we might make a big enough lottery for the income to exceed the outcome (that is, more money gained then lost). H...

I still think that you should either appoint a moderator or take measures to prevent spam. Such measures can be easy to implant and most people are already used to them.
