Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

And I can see a much easier way to cripple the US electrical grid.

Yes, load it up with wind and solar power sources.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

A shipboard nuke in a harbor, a sub with a nuke missile or just on board - sail into a harbor or close to the coastal city, suicide missions. You know the possibilities better than I. The scenario is NK invades SK or threatens nuking SK if they don't surrender, and threatens to blow up X major US (o...

Re: EMC2 news

My experience with models is mixed. Run tests, get loads of data, tune model to fit, make a change and all the test need running again for new tuning parameters. In other words, some complex systems have extreme sensitivity to boundary conditions. On the other hand if you run the model, get results,...

Re: Placing humans at center of computer optimization yields hot plasmas

Google must smell success is eminent. Wants to claim credit. Bit player. Where is Google's support for Polywell? Cash is Key.

I think it has to do with either getting or having gotten financing.

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Tri Alpha no longer has any tweets on their Twitter account. This was just after giving information out via an article on the target plasma temperature for their new reactor named 'Norman'. I have no idea what happened. Perhaps investors wanted greater secrecy.

Over the coming months, the company will be accelerating Norman’s levels of performance to further validate the fundamental confinement requirements that will ultimately be necessary for commercial operations. No, they are working to validate basics for commercial, in "coming months," not...

Re: General Fusion in the news

SJ Adiabatic compression is GF's target, and they are searching for a plasma structure that will provide that. That is the point, not the temperature. Once GF has determined the structure compression will be scaled up, hence the larger injector was made and is being tested. GF is the only ones that ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

I have been unclear what the 500 ev has referred to. I thought it referred to temperature reached under stable plasma conditions using both their injector plus explosive compression using shaped charges (issue being stable plasma and contaminants - lithium liner used to suppress contaminants).
