Re: General Fusion in the news

GF's investors are timid. They will front only the money needed to demonstrate what they need and no more. Their next machine will be the commercial machine. I don't know about the timidity of the General Fusion investors, but there are physics and technological risks involved and those are the rea...

Re: Lockheed Martin news

Has anyone insight on how Lockheed Martin is doing? I noticed that they did not submit any abstract to the APS Division of Plasma Physics conferences in 2020 and 2021, but in the previous years they did present regularly with several contributions.

Re: MIT claim they will build the SPARC

This is interesting news. The question of radiation hardness of these HTC-magnets is still open. It will determine the lifetime of the magnets and the service interval and play a role in the operational costs of the facility, so it is an important issue.

Re: General Fusion in the news

At this point Helion is the only one that will fit, but yes, fusion power plants are superior for safety and training reasons. Perhaps also for cost reasons. Dunno about that ($) yet. ZAP's could fit too... The advantage of Helion's reactor is that there is no noisy steam plant. It would be as quie...

Re: JET will attempt Q-record by the end of the decade

Is there any news out yet on the JET DT-campaign? Does anyone know if the DT-experiments have been started during this summer or has there been more delays?
