The only modern "true" free market experiment

Anyone here follow bitcoin?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

Currency with no backing just like the dollar but with no inflation possible and nothing physical a person can steal from you.

A truely free market with no regulation - should be an interesting experiment to watch.

For those of you in Europe/elsewhere: as an American NASA holds a very small amount of national identity for me, I feel like the organization of NASA is very international and very much shared even though American tax dollars pay for it and Americans run it.

The Dark Knight Rises fusion device

http://sciencefiction.com/2012/06/29/the-dark-knight-rises-banes-new-weapon-now-identified/ The lines on the inside match those of a polywell. Just thought it was an interesting detail of an excellent movie. Admittedly I had to suspend disbelief for every scene that involved that reactor though. Eve...

The biggest reasons polywell is currently ONLY funded through an ONR grant (basically): 1) Park has a deep seated desire to have as professional and reviewable results as possible (according to a source on this forum that I don't have the link for right this second).

I really really really hope WB9 comes after DEMO...

Oh Glorious day, 5 mil! The e gun stuff is very interesting.
