Taking a sociological look at energy and other limits on human population, it seems that if energy becomes cheap/plentiful enough to do insanely energy-intensive things like watering deserts and making up enough ethanol to run the world's cars, trucks, ships etc, our population will go up again, as ...

I'm rather strapped for cash, being a college student and all! I'd certainly be interested, but I'm not sure how much I could contribute. My feeling right now is that what we need is a large, well-built machine, and I doubt I could do anything to help with that. But perhaps some systems components c...

I'm at Carson-Newman College. It's got about the smallest physics department I've ever heard of, lol! (But my dad teaches here, so I go for free, pretty much! Can't beat that.) I'm planning on going to U. of T at Knoxville for grad school, they've got much better labs etc. An internship would be ama...

I see what you are saying. Based on the Faraday cage principle, the inside of a metal conductor should not have any e-field. However, you can get around that if you have an isolated charge inside the sphere. In fact, I think the MaGrid ought to do just about right. It has to do with Gauss's law: the...

Hmm, I think it would help if the document were released as some kind of press release from an organization. Is there an organization associated with Dr. Bussard's work that might publish such a paper? Or can one be established?

I'm a freshman college student, math/physics double major (with a healthy interest in chemistry and engineering too), and I saw the fusor stuff several years ago and was excited, but I realized it wasn't going anywhere. So when I came across the Polywell discussion on nasaspaceflight.com forum (I'm ...
