You can see the chamber in the top left of the image below. The access port was on the back side, opposite the injection gun (big ass appendage with yellow cap on this side).

Mini-B, where the proof of whiffleball ocurred is in the lower center of the pick, near Jaeyoung. It is a much smaller chamber.

Park and Krall have written a new EMC2 patent application which has been published.

GENERATING NUCLEAR FUSION REACTIONS WITH THE USE OF ION BEAM INJECTION IN HIGH PRESSURE MAGNETIC CUSP DEVICES

Generation of nuclear fusion reactions with the use of ion beam injection in high pressure magnetic cusp devices is described. The open magnetic field structure of a magnetic cusp allows the use of ion beam injection to generate nuclear fusion reactions. Start-up processes utilizing pulsed high power plasma initiators are employed for rapid generation of high pressure plasma condition inside magnetic cusp devices resulting in increased ion beam confinement. This is followed by energetic ion beam injection from an outer region of the magnetic cusp device into the inner central region via one or more openings of the magnetic cusp. The injected ion beams are confined by the magnetic field in equilibrium with the high pressure plasma and generate fusion reactions when they undergo collisions with the high pressure plasma that acts as a target in the magnetic cusp.


The document is 101 pages long with roughly half of it being text. I have not read it yet, so I will not comment on the contents.

Yummy! Fresh meat! I think I see a couple of new details. This should keep me busy for a couple of evenings.

Maybe now EMC2 can attract deep pocket investors to expedite their prospects. I may be reading General Fusion wrong, but it seems they are slow in attracting enough cash to build their next 'proof of economic fusion' device, their demo plant. Recent $49 million from the Canadian Gruberment is just a piece of what the cash hungry demo plant needs (and that is likely Canadian dollars.)
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

And now that cat is also out of the bag...

Keep watching.

So how many cats are there still left in the bag? :wink:

From a quick read it seems a really interesting cat.

Looks like my firefly spaceship is back on the drawing boards!!! :D

Wonder if the goon squad at Nasa is paying attention :wink:

When you are working in the realm of first principles, interesting new knowledge can hold deep meaning.

Anyone else have some thoughts here. I know we talked about something similar before. Come on Guys & Gals!

I know this eye meltingly rich dude who owns an equally overdone lab and sounds like the kind of person for this, directly or one of his acquaintances. I'll ask, even if I can't promise anything. If it's not too late?
