Wow, this discussion has gone in a direction that I did not foresee. Glad to see that the trend of drifting from the subject line is going strong! Therefore:

I still do not understand how energy is being extracted for net power. How does .035 N/w efficiency turn into a net power device?

a thrust efficiency of 0.035 N/W would make it self-powering


some folks have theorized that you could use M-E thrusters when they reach 1 N/W efficiency, to power a generator to produce net power


Net Power? Uh, I don't understand. Help! :?

Could ME thrusters be used to produce torque?

I was mowing the lawn yesterday and started wondering what would be more transformational; polywell fusion or M-E thrusters? As I pushed my two cylce gas powered mower along, I thought about how things would be different in my day to day life if either were prevalent throughout society. Until we get...

an engine that "makes the mass of the ship and anything in it negative" Where did you get this from? If my understanding of the Mach Effect (ME) is accurate, you have to have a change in the internal energy of the "mass" in order to "see" or "use" the ME. The...

rashudo, I am most definitely not qualified to discuss the physics behind the theory, however, my meager understanding leads me to suggest a qualification of your question. Inertia is not caused by most DISTANT matter. It is caused by most matter. It just so happens that most of it (like 99.9999%) i...

Is it possible to "capture" lightening with this kind of technology?

First post

Hello all. I have been following Polywell for almost 3 years and finally have decided to take the plunge and post my first comment. I am a Naval Aviator with an 18 year old BS in physics which lets me think I can almost understand what you are talking about and has led me to think I have something c...
