Re: More Helion Energy news....

Explain how the selections were made then. Also, Helion has had its sources of cash before now. Polywell's biggest problem has been the inability to publish, as you well know.

Nevertheless, this is all fighting over scraps and crumbs from the big crony table.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Well, ARPA-E did a pretty good job and funding alternative fusion concepts,

And Polywell got zip. Crony hand outs.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Few politicians have any science background, and zero have any ability to grasp plasma science. Even the so called science journalists have no grasp and look for safe reporting opinions from institutional physicists who have safe careers in the bureaucracy of massive projects like ITER that offer fu...

Re: More Helion Energy news....

I dunno, business climate and tax laws change, investment in America might become worthwhile again. Also repatriation of trillions from overseas I have heard has been an impediment to investments in the US. So don't overlook such details.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Anyone here actually communicated with Trump about Dark Horse Fusion projects and how close they are? Or this is just whining?

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Thanks Skipjack, yes, 8 tweets in 4 1/2 years. I will never use Facebook. How old is the latest Youtube upload? And their website is good as compared to EMC2. Sad, but a reflection of funding. Funny thing is that I can't tell if they are doing anything anymore.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

It seems the fusion companies are all getting twitter accounts which is good because it facilitates news updates. Helion just started theirs. https://twitter.com/Helion_Energy I am trying to understand where Helion is, what their next step is (current prototype test goal), and when their next protot...

Re: Lockheed Martin news

The white paper linked to above: http://fusion4freedom.us/pdfs/LManalysis.pdf fails to understand what EMC2 proved, Grad's conjecture works, so it does not grasp what 'inflation' for start up means. LM has stalks which is an engineering issue and Polywell eliminates. LM's project still seems to stil...

Re: Lockheed Martin news

Here is the 2015 Princeton presentation which I think is worth viewing. I don't think I have seen this one before this. For instance McGuire comments that superconductor performance in these machines is better due to increased pinning sites from neutron radiation. Also, it seems to me that LM at thi...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

C-2U was successful. C-2W is being built. Articles published with experimental results. What is the point of linking to gossiping no name trolls? Any news older than C-2U results is useless. If I was a physicist whose career was dependent on ITER, Tri Alpha success would be worrisome. Or, a Mid East...

Re: General Fusion in the news

For GF, everything is full size at this time except for the compressor which is 1/3 scale. The next step is full size for the sphere but one shot at a time.

Re: General Fusion in the news

C-2W has as its target just to scale up the temperature. I expect results to be quick. Indeed C-2U results last year were quick as they already knew what they wanted to test and the only question was what would happen? It was a make or break situation. However, we may not know what happens with C-2W...
