Re: General Fusion in the news

• Prototype goal: achieving fusion conditions (10 keV), sub-breakeven

Well that is rather disappointing, isn't it?

Well, their counter arguments make perfect sense, though.

Re: General Fusion in the news

IIRC TAE at one point had plans for an interim design that would "burn" D+T in case PB11 would take too long with funding drying up. They would market D+T reactors until they had refined their reactor enough that PB11 would work. That was years ago however and I am not sure it is still in ...

Re: Skynet is coming.

Here is more about drone swarms. As I have said in the past, the F35 is already an unnecessary and expensive anachronism. The F22s we have would be good enough if they are surrounded by huge swarms of cheap and good drones. You can buy 60(!) of Kratos' new combat drones for the cost of a single F35!...

Re: General Fusion in the news

It is very interesting to see that GF is ready to start planning and building their integrated full scale prototype device, but of course that will take a couple of years. It will also be interesting to see what TAE and Tokamak Energy are able to do during that time. And Helion. Don't forget them! ...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

There were other papers that they published that stated things to a similar effect. Either way, it is just splitting hairs. Their theories seem to work and they have good experimental results. That is what counts. I am looking forward to seeing the results they will achieve with C-2W.

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

Yes, but this is the published paper, for those that wanted to read it. There was one point that I missed, and that is the point that high energy neutral beam injection was shown in their testing to lead to effective increase in fusion reaction rate, or effective fusion reaction temperature. To tho...

Re: LENR Is Real

I am happy that the test ran. Too bad it didn't work, and now me365 is making excuses... Let us see if he tries again. He made some pretty bold claims in the past. Yes, that was great! Oh how they were expecting this to finally be the real thing and again nothing. The sad part is that this is distr...

C-2U results paper published, enjoy: https://trialphaenergy.com/wp-content/uploads/fliphtml5/2/book.html Let me translate the test results: The C-2U machine achieved long lived, stable high density plasma, capable of facilitating building compact fusion reactors, and that it was found that beam inj...

Re: SpaceX News

That sounds like a pretty direct competitor to Vector Space Systems . Wonder how many players the micro-satellite industry can support? How big can it get without making space junk an unmanageable issue? I thought most new satellites have to be able to go into a garbage orbit at the end of their li...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

More funding for the military. I guess 4 times China and 10 times Russia was not enough yet :( In return ARPA-E, the lifeline for many small domestic fusion projects gets cut completely :( Just shows what a bloody idiot Trump is: http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/23/politics/trump-budget-cuts-programs/inde...

Re: SpaceX News

It has been frustrating to try to understand progress they are making on fairing recovery compared to the booster recoveries where we got to watch every attempt. I wonder why SpaceX is being so secretive about the fairing recovery attempts? Also, I'm a little surprised the fairing isn't susceptible...
