SpaceX seems to have a big head start though, seeing as Blue Origin has never reached orbit.

Re: Lockheed Skunkworks Announces Comm. Fusion in 4 years

Yep. The article's words, not mine. Well, at least it means they're doing more than simulations now, which I didn't know.

Re: in the lifestyle section of the bangkok post ?

Lockheed Martin, for example, has developed a compact fusion reactor that can fit in the back of a large truck, which, according to the company's claims, can power a city of 100,000 people.


Uh, what? This has been a done deal since when? More shoddy reporting.

Re: BLP news

I guess it must be that time in the BLP (now "Brilliant Light Power") cycle to raise more cash from the credulous. Never a product, just hand waving and a light show. Mills: “The source of hydrogen fuel and catalyst to form hydrinos is water. A commercial enabling fuel injection system and...

Re: Will Europe wake up?

Surrendering to Death This encapsulates two points I often try to make. Islam is not compatible with Western ideas of Equality and Tolerance, and the media are lying sacks of liberal excrement who manipulate the news as much as they think they can get away with, in an effort to make it conform to t...

Re: LENR Is Real

Although the more IH spends on lawyers, the more you have to wonder whether Rossi's case isn't meritless after all.

Re: Princeton Plasma Physics FRC

How much funding has NASA given them? Is there any chance this will progress beyond Phase I? It seems like so many of these studies end up in the dust bin. In this Phase I study, we propose to analyze the Pluto mission concept using new models of the engine. We will develop an optimal trajectory inc...

Re: Small Tri Alpha news blurp

A startup in California has raised $500 million to chase the elusive dream of fusion power. Is this crazy, or is the company on to something?
