Re: EMC2 news

Relevant to the discussion are simple, confirmed neutron counts. AFAIK, EMC and Park et al have the most promising history of neutron counts to date. Those little bubbles make the evidence seeking part of my brain tingle. Having said that, it's almost a shame that info was missing from the cusp EMC ...

Re: Art Technica - Magnetic Mirror Holds Promise for Fusion

Dan has a great history of exposition here, nothing personally directed at the choice of article or the author that I can see. I enjoy lurking here and reading Dan's awesome exposition. It is also a good point, Celtic, about him possibly cross-posting here and there though. But I still like to see h...

Re: Aviation Week on the Lockheed Skunkworks CFR

Actually also if my theory of the oscillating field winding is correct about being a gridless accelerator, I can explain the reason for the third coil as well in the center of the two opposing Helmholtz coils. Its just kind of falls out so I'm getting a bit pumped if only the FEM software can prove...

Re: Aviation Week on the Lockheed Skunkworks CFR

It makes the most sense in the world to advertise D D reaction and then after the NDA is signed reveal pB11 to a potential funding source. Can't let the free market have the best until your money is already 5-10 years ahead of it. All these fusion concepts have an incentive to hide pB11 with DD prop...

Gyroelongated square bipyramid

I'm bad at searching the theory forum for this sort of thing, and this is a long shot based on a conversation I had with Wolfram Alpha (it's that kind of night).... Does anyone have a decent simulation they can try this shape in "Gyroelongated square bipyramid" or have any idea how Johnson...

Re: EMC2 has published a polywell preprint on arXiv

I am cursing in happiness. Christmas? In June? I invite everyone to partake in a a little of your favorite drink across the globe. This is the paper I've been waiting for since I started watching this thing years and years ago. http://imgur.com/70YqNzp Dr Park, Dr Nebel, thank you. Now all we need i...

Article in Nature on carbon nanotube batteries

http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nnano.2014.93.html Abstract: Micro-supercapacitors are promising energy storage devices that can complement or even replace batteries in miniaturized portable electronics and microelectromechanical systems. Their main limitation, however, is th...

Re: Lockheed Martin Skunkworks - Compact Fusion

5 years. Looks like a polywell coil to me too.

EMC2 still holds a special place in my heart, but I can't say skunk works doesn't make me want to cheat.

I'm stealing that delta, I don't care if I have to wait 20 years to use it again in a similar situation.

And now with my drone army waiting for the right moment to strike, your drones will have a hard time stopping me.
