My wife just gave me Sun in a Bottle by Charles Seife, just out last month, a book on the history of fusion, superbly researched and very well written - I wish I could write half as well as he can! http://www.amazon.com/Sun-Bottle-Strange-History-Thinking/dp/0670020338/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books...

This is a very distressing thread. It does not belong in "Theory," but it would still be distressing in "General." My first thought was that the underlying cause might be the frustration with the lack of news about the WB-7 and potential follow-on projects; but then I wondered if...

once this war is over, there will be tons more money for anything else, including Nuclear Fusion, I am sure. Oh and dont even get me started on the Iraq war. This war is a failure from the very beginning to the very end. No matter one's position on the this war - justified or not, Not matter one's ...

What kind of device will this new stuff be intended for? Will it be more like a WB-8 or more like a WB-100? My impression a few months back was that Dr Nebel leans more toward the WB-100: "This machine is so inexpensive going into the 100-megawatt range that there's no compelling reason for not...

So? So any respectable researcher, will not touch anything that could be considered part of the lunatic fringe. If Polywell is grouped with Aliens it will never be taken serious by mainstream scientists. I share your concern. See: http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=830 William W Flint

Make your voice heard!

I can't believe that there are only 20 people who care what this machine is going to be called. I know there are a multitude of silent "Lurkers" with repressed opinions out there. It's time to make your voice heard!

Better, I guess, that the bad news comes from the perpetrator himself (that would be me). http://feralhouse.com/titles/new_releases/secret_and_suppressed_ii.php This is the short piece on the Bussard Fusion Reactor.

I would have guessed that "ignition" in this context means "fusion," but apparently not, because the BFR* has already had some fusion, right? Does "ignition" then mean break-even? Or is there some other intermediate step that I have missed? Bill Flint *BFR - new "o...

Hey Tom -

This wouldn't be that group that was convened to save the planet in Larry Niven's "Footfall" would it?

Just kidding! Congratulations - now, save the planet!
