Re: EMC2 news

Solo, I thought relativistic energies would be too much of a good thing for polywell electron injection, but when I think "polywell electrons" and add "relativistic," I next think about the air-propellant cruiser/SSTO Dr. Bussard envisioned years ago. The operative phrase there i...

Re: Shanghai Vacation

You're welcome. When I was writing about the additive manufacturing exhibit I thought about your scientist son. He will have some competition.

As soon as I remember/figure out how to post the pictures natively here, I will correct my previous post. It's been a while since I posted a picture.

Shanghai Vacation

I had the very great privilege to vacation in Shanghai China while my wife was working (1) in a nearby free-trade zone. I won't bore you with all of my doings while I was there (2), but I did see some salient happenings and form some impressions which might be useful. One funny thing happened after ...

Re: Proton failure diagnosed as a design flaw

Just so much time in a day. Just so, indeed. The answer to the rhetorical question: No Russian wants to spend more money on Proton (well maybe the people who build it...). V.
