If this number is low enough during fusion conditions then we are onto something.
That to me is the big question. Everything else is fun details to start thinking about.

Re: Dr. Park invites questions from the community

Dr. Park,

The Next Big Future article says you "estimate that a $30 million/ 3 year EMC2 effort could remove the remaining scientific concerns of successfully developing commercial fusion power technology." What are your remaining scientific concerns and which one concerns you the most? Why?

Re: EMC2 news

I have to agree with Ladajo. I think they are more in a confirm what they think mode than still needing to conduct research. I found what Park said extremely exciting. Just wish EMC2 would go public and offer shares! :P

Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

I really don't know how things will turn out regarding funding. However it turns out, I suspect navy money is a low likelihood. I t truly is sad to think that such a promising effort is not at the forefront of resourcing. We spend so much money on stupid shit, waste, and just plain uninformed decis...

What do you mean?

Nevermind, I just saw your post in the SpaceX thread. My fingers are crossed, but I am not feeling as hopeful as I did a few months ago.

Re: Musk's Powerwall

Pdxpyro's question, "Do renewables really produce "excess" energy?" could be looked at differently. How about thinking how much energy did it take to make the panel versus how much it produces over its lifetime? Taking into account the energy to mine for the minerals, process them, transport them, m...

Re: Since we had this discussion about UAVs and F22s etc...

I wonder when the last aircraft carrier will be bought? Imagine a strike group with an E-2D system in an aerostat overhead (24/7 by the way) and a fleet of drones (that could have substantially different takeoff and landing requirements, thus smaller and denser flight decks). Would we still need Nim...

Re: WARNING sign

Such wholesome fun. Might I add: Exhibit B - Shovel that was leaning against Exhibit A Exhibit C - The vast yard behind Exhibit A in which Exhibit B appeared to be used numerous times in. So many times, we are not sure we looked everywhere. Exhibit D - The firearm mentioned in Exhibit A. These three...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Ya'all understand the implications of unnatural sources of Mach effect on a scale and timeframe to cause universal expansion beginning 7.5 billion years ago, right?

Wasn't there a Star Trek Next Generation episode about something like this? Didn't we already talk about this?

Re: Seeking assistance with a plan for well-funded polywell

Tyler,

Based on the assumption that Polywell works and will "burn" PB11, I would say you need to figure out to do direct conversion.

Re: Free energy not all good?

I brought up this discussion almost four years ago!

At the time though, I thought we were just a couple years away from "knowing" we had cheap clean energy.
