Well I guess that cat is out of the bag.

ITAR not a problem?/?, they were navy funded and dual use comes to mind. Or are we talking licensed coproduction program.

My incredulity is taxed to wondering if we don't have agents in our military. I find it astounding that the Navy has not picked this up... or LM. It is beyond stupid.

reducing from 12 cents to 8 cents is 33% reduction; I thought it would be more. Like to 5 cents per kWh, or are a lot of cost due to grid problems?

Rob,
This is a high number of high energy neutron producing reactor so replacement reactor becomes maintenance. Further, the tritium cycle and radioactivity also ups the cost. This is an entry level cost. I would expect future reactor would shoot for Boron.

It is all talk without money.

Sounds like another year at least to get information with a well. Drat. Well, I'll go back to holding my breath :)
BTW, the links on ennresearch.com appear to be gone? :(

Thanks for sharing crowberry.
n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...
