A Sequel to The Google Talk

Postby Tom Ligon » Thu Jan 29, 2015 2:01 am

I know all of you know about Dr. Bussard's famous talk to Google.

Now we can add to that Dr. Park's talk to Microsoft.

I doubt you'll find a lot new in the data presented from some of the talks we've seen earlier, but this is a video and it seems to me some of the slides are new.

Nobody in the front row. Nobody wants the splash zone if it might be radioactive?

Are you guys getting this to play right? I keep locking up at the Question on Plasma Stability slide. My browser stops loading at that point.

I don't have 80 minutes to rule it out, but I can seek around the length of the video, and it seems to load fine. Google Chrome, latest version.

That video was great. Very encouraging. I think they are going to do it too.

I just got the link to the video from my friend Clyde. I have started it playing in Firefox. It looks good so far.

OK. I got a failure about 23 minutes in. The download works.

I used Safari. It always works, even when nefarious places like google try to scare you that it won't.

Was a good presentation, but I'd like to know where the $300M figure came from for a 2 meter chamber. I would not have guessed within an order of magnitude even if I built in the cost of a large staff working for ten years. The thing doesn't even have cooling! Where did that number come from? I think they're paddin' the guesstimate some and not really skillful at how to make an estimate to begin with, and it's a shame because they might get $30M but I doubt they'll get $300M.

Maybe because at Microsoft, $300M is "just a handful of McMansions?"

Ah, to have money! I'm too used to poor-boying, even in fusion R&D. Most of us here probably have a hard time thinking on that scale.

2 meter radius coils, not chamber. Those must be some kind of electron injectors to jump to closed cusps.

And that is nearly 1 GW net (over plasma heating which does not include auxiliaries, nor power after electric conversion).

Awesome. It even has the spiky ball.
n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

Actually the recently couple of versions of Firefox have been utter crap. I think they've inflated themselves a bit and moved away from the simplicity they once were. As for safari, I avoid it due to known security issues, but since it is a low market share, you're probably safe. Chrome lacks a lot of standard features of other browsers yet, but it's getting there. I won't speak to IE, we all know what's wrong there.
