Re: Lockheed Skunkworks Announces Comm. Fusion in 4 years

Just as the term "maiden voyage" has little meaning without reference to a specific vessel or vessel class, the term "first plasma" has little meaning without reference to a specific reactor design. We've already seen plasma in a Lockheed-Martin reactor more than three years ago,...

Re: Lawaranceville E-Newsletter

There's a link to download the full-text PDF from the page DeltaV linked to. The number of alphas produced is indeed 10 to the 9th power. Cut-and-paste operations often fail to preserve superscripts and other formatting. By my reading of the paper, what they are referring to is essentially the same ...

This is my favorite part: Because Defendants are not permitted to introduce facts outside the Complaint and its Exhibits, this motion does not address, for example, the numerous errors in Plaintiffs’ purported “Guaranteed Performance Test” that the Complaint purposely ignores (such as departing from...

Re: MIT SPARC Presentation

It is interesting, how similar Tokamak Energy's approach is to ARC/SPARC approach by the MIT. Who copied from whom? http://nextbigfuture.com/2016/05/compact-spherical-tokamak-would-be-100.html#more I couldn't say definitively, but Tokamak Energy does list Professor Dennis Whyte as a consultant . He...

Re: LENR Is Real

The standard Rossi fan fallback arguments are "It wasn't technically a lie (as far as we know)" and "It isn't illegal", which are pretty weak arguments in favor of a brilliant inventor who's going to change the world. This argument sounds more like "Maybe it's illegal, but i...

What does it mean to "compromise" a patent? Could you point to some legislation or USPTO rule that backs up what you're saying here?

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Oddly enough, Helion Energy apparently posted a news article on their website the same day as the NBF article appeared, yet there was no mention of it in the NBF article, except perhaps this oblique reference: * The Fusion Engine was designed from the ground up to be a competitive commercial device,...

Re: More Helion Energy news....

It was not so long ago that Helion seemed to be the company that wasn't getting any funding. Now it seems like they have all the right connections, even more so than EMC2. Not that I begrudge them their funding. It's nice to see some DOE money going to potential competitors to the mainline tokamak p...

China plans to build hybrid nuclear reactor by 2030

The South China Morning Post has reported that China is planning to build an experimental hybrid fusion-fission reactor by 2030. The proposed reactor would be built at a military research facility in Sichuan province, and would use fast neutrons from fusion to burn u-238. Reasons given for pursuing ...

Re: Summer Science Exhibition 30 June - 5 July 2015, London

Motherboard.vice.com has an article on Tokamak Energy. Not much new, but apart from all the mashing and squashing, not to mention the fuelless reactor, it's pretty easy to follow.

Re: EMC2 has published a polywell preprint on arXiv

Not that exciting, we already knew wiffleball confinement is a real thing, but nice to finally see this published. It may not be the latest experimental results, but the importance of the paper is that it is in a peer-reviewed journal, and it is something EMC2 can point investors and other interest...
