I found Ladajo's observation observation important that,
after all, there was no WB-8 data included in the paper, none, and a lot of work and data was accumulated that should dove tail into the Mini-B results, which none of us on the outside can speak to. In light of EMC2 discovery that popping the clutch is key, that jumping to beta = 1 is essential for wiffle ball formation, and cusp confinement, it leads immediately to the question could any further insight be gained from WB-8 with EMC2's current wimpy electron and ion guns? Only EMC2 can answer that yes, or no.As for all the speculation, I would posit that there is more than likely more data that was not released in this initial paper from Dr. Park & Co
Still, tt would seem to me to be a no brainer to put in the required elephant guns for WB-8 and shine the light on what things look like in Technocolor, after all, that is some serious scaling changes to go from Mini-B to WB-8! In fact, I wonder if EMC2 can't just go to Joe's rent-a-gun and slap them on? Just kidding.
It will be interesting to see if EMC goes General Fusion's route of openness, or Tri-Alpha's route of staff up and shut up.
Best regards to all
