I agree. The NIAC funding was not quite enough to get this project completed, but I am sure that they will have enough funding once Helion get's their reactor going.

It may also be a function of the ability of Helion to handle another huge project. They are right in the middle of developing, building, testing their reactor. Likely they are not pushing this other project.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

Could very well be true.

TriAlpha also is scrounging for revenue outside of the fusion business model. No one it seems is either reaching their performance targets needed to secure the next massive investments needed for the big machines or investors have withered on the vine due to the China Virus killing investment.

The cost of oil tanking can't be helping either.

So, this kind of news smells bad for the big machine funding. That is my read on it at least....

I think it is a good thing that spin off technologies from fusion can start to generate revenue to help directly the fusion development and also indirectly by increasing the chances of new investements.
