I emailed Carol Ann Austin, organizer of the colloquium to see if it would be streamed via the Princeton Media Central site. Her reply was:

"Hi. Yes, it will probably be streamed, as long as the speaker signs the PPPL waiver forms.
Thanks."

If they livecast it, someone please post the link and/or capture it.

The abstract page at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has now been updated with the link for live streaming of this colloquium: :D

USA Eastern daylight time is -4 GMT. It is -5 hours in my central US daylight saving time zone.

So my not-yet-awake answer, that I changed because it didn't look right, was actually correct (GMT -4 due to Daylight "savings"). :D

The talk was 75 minutes, and ended at 5:30 pm EDT. The reactor is a cusp defined central zone, mirror outer zone to facilitate recirculation, and at the ends to constrain losses at the axis. So, I would call it a modified Polywell. Some discussion was glossed over for the cusp coil support protection, and I am reminded of Polywell and what EMC2 learned. LM is at the science stage and not at the point where scaling is aggressive, but they are not developing new physics was the assertion. There are plasma tests being done where simulation is not possible. Loss areas were mentioned, but the talk was restricted from proprietary requirements.

I am sure others will provide superior reviews, but the above is my attempt. As a comparison, I would suggest Polywell at this point is better developed, but given sparse details on the LM project, I could be mistaken.

I've sent an email to the folks at Princeton asking when it will be posted on the Princeton Media Central site. I'll update as soon as I get a reply.

Thanks for the info, guys! I will try to check the video on Monday!

One vast difference between Polywell and LM's fusion machine (CFR) is that Polywell uses high voltage to drive fusion, but for LM's CFR, they think that heat of fusion will drive the reaction after initial startup. They do this by retaining the fusion byproducts with recirculation aided by the outer mirror magnets.

So, it looks like the power transference will be thermal, possible with molten salt, but those details are to be developed down the road. McGuire's talk devoted a lot to the idea of how to achieve high project development speed.
