Re: I Have Been Occupied

I'm almost fully recovered from my 26 May 2019 heart attack. I still believe Polywell needs funding. I have no idea how to make it happen. Didn't know that also. I was actually wondering if you got involved into some research as I didn't see anymore posts from you, than i read this.... Hope it was ...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Shawyer as an theorist yes; though he may or may night be a competent experimentalist. But what about DARPA greenlighting a phase 2 version of their research into EmDrive? Implies they must have gotten something positive from the Nov'18 study. Surely DARPA has cred with you? DARPA is just doing the...

Re: Mach Effect progress

McCulloch is also talking to a consortium in California who are creating their own Horizon Drive experiment. This group includes the University of Southern California and an organization, which he is only allowed to describe as a ‘major aerospace company.’ Their goal is to demonstrate the effect “v...

Re: Mach Effect progress

If i remember correctly DARPA's results was also negative/inconclusive, but I might be confusing them with some other lab. EMdrive has been tested from half a dozen labs so far in Europe China and USA and all of them didn't find the claimed effect or pinpointed any anomaly to a known physical process.

Re: Mach Effect progress

Right now they could make good use of Tajmar help if they kept contact and good relationships with him.
He is quite excellent in pinpointing external or internal causes of interference on data logs while keeping enough open mind to evaluate the experimental results in an objective way.

Re: Mach Effect progress

What would a cost comparison look like between, say, the time and resources Martin Tajmar and his lab spent on testing, and simply building a cube sat that could definitively demonstrate whether on not the effect works by virtue of being out in space. Maybe beg a place on one of Elon Musk's Starlin...

Another bit of information is that they seem to be very happy with their ability to recapture a good share of the power they are putting into the reactor for each pulse. David has been emphasizing that this is one key aspect that make their technology superior to other fusion reactor concepts. How ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

No one seems to be announcing demonstration machine build funding reached, and project initiation. Either investor cash has died of China Virus or performance targets have failed to have been reached. Smells like Fusion is in need of a China Virus ventilator and cure.
