Again, thanks crowberry. GF went from 200 to 300, now 400. My take is this is strictly to put funding numbers in place and to minimize risk of failure. Besides the instability issue, there is the piston lifetime (pistons can move slower to deliver less energy) and wave shape for optimum fusion. I am expecting the big GF machine funding to happen this year; it takes time to fill an order for a 3 meter diameter metal sphere and 400 pistons, etc.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

I am somewhat disappointed that the article does not mention Helion. Once again, they are being ignored, even though they are among the top contenders in the race.

The article had a picture though. One guess is that the article length had to be trimmed, worse than a budget cut.

The race is heating up, but the heat is hot air so far. I want to see some big chips on the table for some big systems! (and not the big oinking gov trough chips to ITER, some serious results oriented VC chips). :lol:
