NearStar Fusion

Post by Carl White »

"NearStar Fusion Inc. Discloses Development Effort for a Promising New Type of Fusion Energy"
NearStar’s fusion energy approach is based on a NASA NIAC funded concept called Gradient Field Fusion https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/201 ... 005430.pdf. The NearStar version is called Hypervelocity Gradient Field Fusion (HGFF) and utilizes a proprietary hypervelocity launcher to drive the pulsed impact fusion reaction.

There's some information on their website (including a photo gallery of their lab), but I didn't find anything about funding.

It seems the same design from "HyperV Fusion" and "HyperJet Fusion" and "PLX experiment". The three shared most of the equipment and facility, and also "Nearstar" seems to share the same equipment and facilities according what I can see on their homepage video.

HyperV Fusion

Same equipment and same lab.
I wonder what really is the new idea behind NearStar that was not tested in the past.....
