Science Daily covered the conference as well. Mega or Mili aside, it looks like there's some interesting research being done: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100321182909.htm The article lists presentations at the bottom, some of which might be searched up to find out more specific actu...

And, contrary to the situation with bio-fuel from something like corn, instead of decreasing the food supply, it increases it... since you can eat whatever you don't use for fuel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirulina_(dietary_supplement) OK, maybe not as apetizing as a good ear of corn... but it's...

Huh. Dr. Nebel just posted here that the WB-7 chamber is cubical.

Or are these ideas not related?

I really like the ad hominem portion of this debate... let's see more of that from both of you. At least it's entertaining; if not quite salutory to the prospect of convincing anyone of your positions. On the other hand, if the goal of this site (even if this IS the "general" part of it) i...

I didn't read closely enough, somebody already commented about this here: http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=1252

And here: http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=1280

Not sure if the article brings anything new to the discussion.

I think that you may need to use the term "hypothesis" or the like in some of those definitions a bit more. For instance, shouldn't: claimed to be inherent in Polywell systems Be: hypothesized to be inherent in Polywell systems ? There's a problem occasionally with the rhetoric around here...

I think we've been over this before, no? That is, the answer is "it all depends on what Polywell ends up being, if it ever does." That is, based on the most optimistic extrapolations of what the technology might do, yes, it could do everything that Bussard and we imagine. Based on other ex...

Ah, I see; fair and balanced. Therefore it must be on topic.

I thought the point under discussion was Billy's understanding of Polywell, and whether or not quantum complexities made working on Polywell difficult. Well, at least that was the part that sounded interesting to me....

It still baffles me every time I see a comment here on why ITER won't work. Isn't this a Polywell site? Does it make Polywell more likely to work if ITER won't? I don't see Art saying at all that tests on the Polywell shouldn't happen. He's just predicting that it'll all come to naught. Which the te...
