Re: SpaceX News

It has been awhile, but they just landed their 47th booster (this makes two in row at sea)! https://www.space.com/spacex-falcon-9-jcsat-18-launch-landing-success.html They are also forecasting more satellites being launched in the next decade than all the years up to now. And SpaceX will be the oper...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Well, what I was referring to was the general lack of mention of Polywell in any fusion discussion. I watched a "panel" discussion on fusion with Focus Fusion, Tri Alpha, NIF and someone representing investors, but no mention of Polywell.

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

SJ, thank you very much for the links. Some of the best overviews I have seen. The jump in power out from 500 MW to 1 GW is impressive and suggestive of a high probability of success.

However, I am guessing fuel dump was used, bringing the environmental issues into play in characterizing this stunt of significant airmanship! R Glenn Retired (proud) Naval ...

Re: Goodbye Tension, Hello Pension

I officially retired after 26 years in the US Navy on Sunday. I was able to pull the go into work in uniform on Friday and show up on Monday in a suit. Some downsides but having a steady pay check is nice.

Re: NIAC, University of Maryland IEC, what is it?

It's just numerical simulation followed by "more detailed" modeling and numerical simulation. Still, NASA looking at it is good!
