A former employer was rapidly failing in 1995, and I was planning to quit and become a consultant. They were contacted by an "R. W. Bussard", who needed to have a vacuum chamber leak-tested (turns out to have been PXL-1). The two of us who recognized the name could not get the company Veep to pry a bit to answer the obvious question.

I obtained the name, and my first order of business in my new career was to drop off a copy of my newsletter to the address. When I was contacted by Dr. Bussard a few weeks later, I asked if he were the R. W. Bussard, "as in ramjets."

"I guess I'll never live that down," was his response.

He told me about Polywells (r) in the interview, and I knew I had to be a part of it.[/i]

I found out about it by way of a Popular Mechanics Mag that had an article that claimed cold fusion could be used by terrorists to produce nuclear weapons. The article turned out to be a complete fraud but trying to find out the process I checked out the Philo Farnsworth web site. I had read in a book on fusion research years before that Farnsworth had invented a small demo fusion reactor that couldn't scale up. No explanation on his process though. At the Farnsworth site I found the link to the google video of Dr. Bussard, less than a month after it was put up.

I was a freshmen in highschool, and I was looking up fusion stuff because I was a sci-fi nut. I eventually hung out at fusor.net enough to get really interested in IEC. This led to eventually reading Tom Ligon's "The World's Simplest Fusion Reactor."

From here I was really interested in the work Tom mentioned about Bussard at the end of the article and the possible application. I kept my eye on it until the Google Video came out years later.
