Doesn't look like they are claiming a P-b11 run? But temps high enough for P-b11?

The temperatures observed are high enough to ignite the nuclear fusion of “aneutronic” fuels like hydrogen and boron.

The WB8 was supposed to have a field strength of .8T which was ~ 8 times that of WB6&7. One way to help achieve that is to run the magnet at LN temperatures where the resistivity is much lower and the current can be much higher. Yes, thanks for reminding me. If the coils of WB-8 are twice the s...

Wasn't there a comment about someone seeing a 6 ft dewer @EMC2 a while back?

Of course many of us thought about MSimons LN2 cooled thoughts.

SO if WB-8 is LN2 cooled, EMC2 could have a quicker cool down between runs, or could be seeing runs of seconds vs ms. I've always wondered about that.

I can't immediately remember other examples where acting on the behalf of the United Nations allowed the U.S. President to ignore U.S. Constitutional requirements for the declaration of war..

Exactly. Those people that claim "no market" for these vehicles dont know anything. They are too lazy to check the launch manifests of SpaceX even, which are public.. I don't discount what SpaceX means, but there are some that do discount SpaceX, they wave their hands and proclaim that do...

I do not know why you insist on driving high energy electron beams into the plasma, nor do I see why it really matters if you did or did not. The Polywell IS NOT an opposing beam system. It only acts like one in some analysis aspect. Polywell is a distributed cloud system with independant driven ra...

As a follow up, From WB-7 to WB-8 What are the changes we know about? - Nubs replaced by standoffs. - Larger size magnets - More power to magnets. - Beveled magnets? The graphic on the website shows a magnet with a bevel. Does this change cusp geometry, I'll guess yes. Does it improve containment by...

Thanks.

Isnt EMC2 using a beveled magnetic ring, I see a lot of graphics above showing tubluar rings.

Another consideration. Nebel mentioned that the Nubs in WB7 were hot spots, implying that they were more significant for ion and /or electron impacts /loses than anticipated. Going to wall standoffs may have helped due to the removal of cusp repeller effects effects similar to the repellar plates i...
