Re: Convergent Scientific Incorporated news

Why will CSI’s Polywell design work when others won’t? So, they are saying that EMC2's design won't work? As far as I know, WB-8 (according to the sole source memo earlier this year) works and proves scaling. October 22 is not that far away... Hopefully they can get enough funding to be able to com...

Re: Radiant Matter Research - The Polywell In The Neatherlan

crowberry, as I understand it, LPP has a large issue, which is how to convert the xrays to useable energy, and I believe this is necessary to economically produce power for them. They have the onion as the proposed device to make that conversion, but I don't know if it has been verified as able to ...

Re: Radiant Matter Research - The Polywell In The Neatherlan

If one believes what Eric Lerner told about the Google Solve for X fusion meeting in June this year then Lawrenceville Plasma Physics is currently supposed to be ahead of General Fusion, Tri Alpha Energy and Lockheed Martin in being nearest to achieve break even. LPP seems to be the most funding con...

Re: General Fusion in the news

General Fusion has a fair chance of success, but they will face the problems of Raleigh-Taylor instability and lead impurities cooling the plasma as well as creating a powerful enough plasma injection system. Hopefully they can solve their issues and the good thing is that they have enough resources...
