Very interesting indeed. At last some polywell related news! Although not from the lab we all are awaiting, but anyways. I wasn't aware of Prometheus development, so thanks for the heads up too.

It violates conservation,. That's why the Brits stopped backing it and let the Chinese have it--for a distraction. I should note though, that it ought to produce thrust according to Sonny White's QVF model, which is why he and Paul March built one. Doesn't the Gyroscopic Inertial Thruster also viol...

Amazing! Isn't propellantless engine like the holly grail of space flight?! :shock: Especially like for long duration interstellar flights for which a conventional drive would require astronomical quantity of propellant. The notion towards such form of propulsion I've encountered so far was that it ...

Look on the bright side of it.
If the program gets classified and all the info suddenly disappears, than it must be working better than expected.
On the other hand, if something went wrong we all would have heard of it till now.

I guess today will not be The Day, when I will see a thread from Dr, Nebel shouting:

“WE DID’T!!! WB-100 funded. Good morning fusion age!"

But I’ll check in again tomorrow and the day after, and the day after that… As long it takes till I see this thread :D

Excellent! Thanx for the briefing, energyfan. It looks like the guys at EESTOR are making a steady progress towards achieving their main goals. I hope that they will prove their critics wrong that have been capitalizing on the fact that the company kept a low profile and there were not many media up...

Re: $300M prize for a new car battery? How much for fusion?

Now add in that McCain is well aware of BFRs. The Multi-Billion Dollar push that I suggested was likely is not near as far fetched as it once seemed. This is not so improbable. I am just squeezing my charms that the “money dam” will burst after the expected August peer review of WB-7. The current o...

Speaking of car batteries... I wonder how far EESTOR development of the Barium Titanate super capacitors went. This is important because even if we had achieved cheap and reliable fusion source for electricity there still has to be a way to apply it in the transport. Like advanced batteries and elec...

This shows yet another time how stubborn and blind could scientists be. Tokamak designs have proven time and again over the years that the design is mind bogglingly complicated and generally flawed. If it had the produce energy it would have done so long ago. The simply cannot convince me that they ...

Man, they've probably spent more bucks for this presentation as the entire Bussard project was getting for a year! Normally I wouldn't mind if it was not the open hostilities in the orthodox scientific community against anything new and innovative like polywell. Hostility which often degrades to ugl...
