Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

WTF is going on with polywell? The 2012 report said 4-5 years to production of fusion systems, and the $5.3 million of ongoing funding was for two years to resolve electron injection "anomalies". One would think we'd be seeing a bit more online than NOTHING if this were the case, that poly...

Re: EMC2 lends plasma source to nat'l lab

Why is emc2fusion.org no longer active with the domain for sale? Does the company have another website operating somewhere?

Re: Scientific Irrationalism: Origins of a post-modern cult

I'm posting this to provide a place to discuss GIThruster's alarming anti-science views which have been aired on another thread. Such views are common, and at least one other poster here shares some of these ideas. I must have missed this thread. In what manner is GIThruster professing an "ant...

I would note that although Mach Effect requires acceptance of mass/inertia fluctuations, it does not require further acceptance of the reality of the "warp term," which implies ability to create negative mass with GI fluctuations. Mass fluctuations of capacitors between charge and dischar...

Re: Mach Effect Propulsion progress

Most recently, Dr. Woodward has run a new experiment with existing equipment, having vibration suppression equipment removed from the apparatus, to demonstrate that Dean Drive effects are NOT involved in the observed thrust his devices produce. This shuts the door on one of the big criticisms made ...

The DeLorean Motor Corporation world headquarters is in Humble, Texas (North Houston suburbs). I drive past it every day. They just announced production of an electric-ified DeLorean in the last couple of months. THAT would be cool to own! I only want a DeLorean if it is powered by a flux capacitor...

Latest work is a specific experiment to rebut critics claims that Woodward's device is simply using Dean Drive effects. All vibration dampening was removed from the test article, and results showed no Dean Drive type effects involved. This is a good negative result that negates one of the biggest ar...
