Re: EM Drive

But everybody ignore the real reason this will never work , and that would be heat from the power plant. You would have to radiate that heat out somewhere from the power plant and even with current tech that is no small feat. That, I would say, is just an engineering issue, not something I would be...

Re: Lockheed Skunkworks Announces Comm. Fusion in 4 years

Re: Wendelstein 7-X

this article claims Wenderlstein 7X was the first in the world ever to produce hydrogen plasma? Other fusion prototypes only produced helium plasma. Is there any veracity to that? http://www.iflscience.com/physics/germanys-fusion-reactor-creates-hydrogen-plasma-world-first "Germany's Fusion Rea...

Re: EMC2 news

I wonder if they shouldn't drop calling it F1, or they will spend all their money on a legal battle with FIA which probably has the acronym as a trademark for Formula One.

I don´t think the technical paper panels were filmed. The convention was pretty big, but only talks in the main auditorium seem to have been filmed.
