"I just want to add that. Clearly Peter Thiel does, or he would not be investing in Helion."

You make a good point that it would indeed be easy for Thiel to let key people know the positive status of the Fusion race. That is a good point, but it may be also that he does not want funds to go to Helion's competition. Same with TAE and GF.

Good to hear you have continued confidence. We all look forward to breakthrough news.

Not much new information, but still worth a post:

2018 is Helion's target for completing their net fusion device, leading presumably testing in 2019. Not much time remaining in 2018 to finish construction so it must be close. None of these guys ever gives enough detail to know what 'completion' means. They talk like O&M people, or worse like Elon Musk. Nevertheless, the 2018 date is good news (assuming NBF info is not 2 years old).

General Fusion seems to be claiming that the last full scale piece, the adiabatic, stable under compression spheromak plasma injector, PI3, has been proven. At this point they are targeting building a demonstration plant. No date for that that I have seen.

In my way of thinking, plasma is the big hurdle, the impossible to know until proven, so for the adiabatic + stable under compression plasma to be proven is good news for all the FRC variants (TriAlpha is a bit different in that they are not doing a pulse compression, but their results are encouraging).

Get ready for commercial fusion is what it sounds like.

Yes, I presume that we won't see results for Helion's new device before some time next year. Would be exciting to see them reach break even in 2019!
The others are not that far behind either and we might see several contenders reach break even in the coming 5 years.
Given the currently known timelines, Helion Energy, Tokamak Energy and LPP seem to be the closest, followed by Tri Alpha and General Fusion. There is also another Z- Pinch concept (in addition to Zap Energy's SFS Z- Pinch) that I recently read about. I can't remember the name, but they sounded very aggressive in their schedule.

The Helion Energy website has been updated with some new content. According to their website their prototypes have now demonstrated that they can do it (though they seemingly still keep things under wraps, probably to avoid too much hype). They can now produce Helium3 (presumably) at a competitive cost. Aiming for a first commercial plant in 6 years.

Should Helion be successful with their fusion to electric project which is sufficiently funded at this point, then we could no doubt expect this application to be resurrected. There is a good chance we will see this even before commercialization as proof of principle should be enough.
