Re: We lost so many members :(

This has been one of Jaeyoung's tenets in growth. The shift in plasma science from physical test articles to simulations. The advances accomplished make that viable. Thus a shift in focus.

Good chance things are in the offing I think.

I am also glad to see the core members still around.

Re: We lost so many members :(

Everything I have heard or seen says they are cutting, not growing the budget. The navy also failed to deliver an actual ship building plan this year, and recycled the last one. Rough seas ahead I suspect. Overall, the force is shifting in emphasis to smaller (even unmanned) platforms to do jobs whi...

Re: We lost so many members :(

Well, I am not dead yet. :)
Glad to see some old timers still around.

"Hammer of God..."

By the by, EMC2 is still not dead either. New focuses, same premises. If Jaeyoung gains more traction you may yet see something. Been a lot of work on the simulation side these last couple of years.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Yes, I presume that we won't see results for Helion's new device before some time next year. Would be exciting to see them reach break even in 2019! The others are not that far behind either and we might see several contenders reach break even in the coming 5 years. Given the currently known timeli...

Re: ENN Fusion Engine Challenge (FUGINE)

This would appear to be another PRC front for gaining access to tech and research, IMHO.

Re: SpaceX News

On another note, wasn't SpaceX thinking to dirt land the dragon with retros after a parachute braking in the past?
Has this been discarded to the trash heap of developmental tangents?

Re: SpaceX News

"(I believe in hopes of putting the payload closer to the final orbit saving satellite propellant which would add life to satellite operations)" Hmm. This is big. Honestly hadn't thought about that before. Although, I know there have been missions in the past where lifetime took a major hit because ...

Re: SpaceX News

I missed the live feed, was off working in a hole. However, coming back to check, I find out they punted the launch until tomorrow 0907 EST due to an anomalous sensor reading on the booster first stage.
So exciting.

Re: SpaceX News

GPS 3-1 goes up today courtesy of a one way Block 5. I wonder if they will try a landing sequence at sea for data collection. Apparently this one is going up hot due to the delivery energy requirement, and thus is deemed not landable. Interesting given it is going to a HEO profile.
