Hi,

I'm very new here. Can someone get me caught up on the status? Is the Navy funding this? If so, at what level? Are the key people still involved? Will we have any way of knowing what progress is being made?

Any info is appreciated!

Hehe, you do seem interested :)

Basically they have limited navy funding to repeat the WB6 results. No one can confirm the exactly $ value

The team is the same minus the late Dr Bussard. With a couple of talented additions.

There is no large neon sign announcing anything. People pick up tid bits of information by being involved in the development community.

If all goes well expect publicized WB7 results mid next year. After then its anyones guess what will happen.

Thats all anyone can say really. Hope it helps

Thanks!

Thanks K - encouraging news. Do you know if any of the posters here are involved in the project? Will we be able to get any news of developments, or will that be restricted?

Pls, correct me if these are "old news" ..


Yeah. It is old news. They picked it up from my IEC Fusion blog and I picked it up from here.

When he says he got it here, he means he got it from the Talk-Polywell forum, not the blog link he then inserted! :wink:

And that is what it says at the blog post I linked. Kiteman got a H/T and a link back to his TP post.
