The reason for the poll and call me cynical, is this. Tokomaks have been getting billions of dollars in funding for 20+ years and we still don't have a net power production machine. And I don't know that anyone has yet proved that a net power production machine that is cost competitive is possible. ...

We know about Nebel and his team. There could be other teams working on this in... say... China. We would certainly never hear about that until the critical patents are filed. If polywells work and if the gobermint wants to keep this one under wraps, they will get blindsided when some foreign govern...

How to get Maximum funding for a follow up to WB-7

When the results of WB-7 are published. There could be a follow up project. I'm wondering what results from the report would provide the maximum funding for any follow up projects.

No matter what... This won't be free energy. It would be cheaper energy, but not free energy. Solar power cells are net power producing. They make more energy over their lifetime than it takes to manufacture and install them. However, they are very expensive. A net power production polywell would be...

Continues pacing and wearing out carpet..... Happy that good news travels slower than bad news... My SWAG is the following.... If the news was good, everybody in the lab would have a lot of incentive to keep their mouths shut to avoid spoiling it. If the new is bad, somebody in the lab would have sp...

After reading this thread for a while, I wonder if it would be possible to adjust the confinement of the cusps in the following manner. If the electrons near the cusps and therefore candidates for escaping are all low energy, what about beaming microwaves into those electrons to provide energy and k...

So, as I see it, your getting a tuning kind of like standing waves. In this case your talking about density standing waves. Or maybe i'm completely missing it. If that is so, then is it better for your fusor to be tuned to generate the maximum amount of standing waves? Is it possible to get an antin...

Remember that antigrav matter repels itself and normal matter. So, it's density should be quite low. And it should have a much lower density in the vicinity of Galaxy's. The only reason it might have a large density where it could effect anything is if the universe contains a lot of it. Like 99.9% o...

Well, I have to ask the question. It seems that a lot more of this anti-grav matter would be required than dark matter to explain galaxy rotation. Since, Anti-Grav matter would tend to be uniformly distributed throughout the universe and the universe is mostly empty space, especially the spaces betw...
