Re: Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) Fusion text

When you are logged in to Amazon, you can view page 390, and the following pages on which the "13.7.7 Vision of a Future p­B11 Fusion Plant" chapter continues.

Re: news that makes you go HMMM

Not really.

The article only mentions DoE, who we know have never really been pro-polywell, DoD isn't even mention once. It doesn't list its application as ship power source, but rather the article list dozen other advantages of smaller modular design.

Re: Joe Eck hits Tc = 48C, 118 F

He should really focus on yield improvement now. If successful, the money would appear quickly for raising Tc later. If the activity on the MT curve is measurement error, or one of the other possible phenomena than superconducting transition, "increasing the critical temperature" is consi...

Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

Still, there is Tri-Alpha and General Fusion efforts, which show us what serious efforts really look like. Makes Polywell look like a red headed Cinderella step child. I mean really!, General Fusion is going for net this year, with $80million cash lined up for the full size prototype when things pa...

Re: Radiant Matter Research - The Polywell In The Neatherlan

Also, the Polywell is being supported by Australia's Democratic Labour Party. It is on their platform. http://www.dlp.org.au/policies/energy/polywell-plasma-fusion/ Democratic Labour Party is very small party, it gets usually around 1% of vote, has only 1 Senate seat and nobody in the House of Repr...

Re: Radiant Matter Research - The Polywell In The Neatherlan

Radiant Matter Research also relies heavily on open-source software to avoid the cost of expensive software licenses. A comprehensive list can be found here. If they have to choose open source programs because lack of money, even if they preferred some commercial option, it is kinda sign that they ...

Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

Then again, since the patent has run out, perhaps the Navy is shifting any REAL funding to a politically connected company like Lockheed Martin. The timing of their great new reactor seems a bit fortuitous. Well, there seems to be some decent private funding for reasonable, patent-able ("save ...

Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

...they need more money for the raw engineering crunch and larger prototype. But DoD can't give them $100 million or more cash as required for that, because that DoE would get involved, and DoE would say that Polywell can't work, and DoE would block larger funding. This has been conventional wisdom...

We just keep hearing about them and then they seem fade away again. Never anything concrete demonstrated....

Re: they want to own our bodies now, I guess?

No, my point was the the orientation of these people was conservative, not their party association. And this law is stupid. People should be allowed to do these things if they want to. This does not hurt anybody. It is simply because the people that signed the law dont like it for some stupid reaso...
