Re: i superconduct, u superconduct, we all superconduct.

For the record, I didn't intend to become the spokesman for this thing, but for the sake of discussion I've made an attempt to put the room temperature resistivity of each line on the graph for you. Room temperature copper (per wikipedia): 1.678 × 10^-8 ohm meter Room temperature STO-SL (black bar i...

Found this graph in the nature article. Looks to be pretty low.

Re: Lockheed Martin Skunkworks - Compact Fusion

Seems unlikely. This document was written in 1968, and the guy in the photo doesn't look that old.

Re: Lockheed Martin Skunkworks - Compact Fusion

If anyone's interested I can post the transcription I had my phone do of the latter 2/3 of the video. It's unfortunately not super accurate, nor does it have punctuation, but it's something.

According to several of the geo-ip databases I use at work, that ip belongs to Comcast, and is typically associated with San Jose. Far from conclusive, but suggestive certainly.

Here is the edit, made by 69.181.36.250. That's a California-based Comcast address. Where's Andrew live?

I'm proud to say that I was part of the Johnson surge and may have convinced a few where it matters (I live in Illinois) to join it as well. Out of curiosity, I gathered the election results for all 50 states and DC to see if the Gary Johnson "surge" made any difference in the election. The answer,...

So how long would it take to reach .1C for 500Kg @ 1.5uN push? F = m * a v = v0 + a * t m = 500 kg F = 1.5 * 10^-6 Newtons v0 = 0 if we start at rest v = 0.1 * c t = (v - v0) * m / F Plug it into google calculator. ((0.1 * c - 0 m/s ) * 500 kg) / (1.5 * 10^-6 newtons) = 316,668,421 years That seems...

In order to properly analyze the impact of placing "Polywell" Power Stations in the economy, you must do the series analysis. I assume this is directed at me. If so, I don't agree that it's necessary for a simple quantitative analysis like paperburn1 was attempting. If you wanted to do a qualitativ...

Given that the usa used 4120 Billion Kilowatthours a year with the general trend of increes usage. How many polywells would it take to replace current electrical usage. So take a size polywell times a production rate lets say one a day not including gearup time to reach that level of production. So...

Re: How Can Anybody Sane Think Like This

Report say, basically if you could steal all the rich's money you could end poverty Actually, it doesn't. World’s 100 richest earned enough in 2012 to end global poverty 4 times over That seems straight-forward to me. I think you're objecting to Jccarlton's interpretation that the article's author ...
