Mark Duncan has passed ...

Postby Tom Ligon » Tue Dec 26, 2017 9:09 pm

Mark Duncan, the fellow who cleaned up and posted many of Dr. Bussard's papers on his Askmar.com website, passed away on the evening of December 23, 2017.

Mark did the Polywell an incalculable service by doing this. I have been sending people to his website for years.

I have space on mine ... I suppose now I should download his entire collection of Polywell and Bussard material, and post it in his honor.

My condolences to all who knew him.

As for posting his work, that would be good to ensure that it is not lost to posterity.

My sincere condolences to Mark Duncan's family. His work was deeply appreciated from most of the people interested in this research.
Unfortunately with every loss keeping the Polywell legacy alive might become more and more difficult.
Crossing fingers that someone will soon pick over again research into this technology.
Look, stars!

Tom,
What, if anything, can I do to help with your archiving effort?

Kiteman,

I think it would be a good idea if you and anyone else so inclined could download and archive the library of Polywell-related documents on his website, just in case.

I just heard back from his sister. I can't imagine the family would object to posting his material, particularly if done in honor of him, but I intend to ask permission to do this.
