Terrific, you have the best track record with EMC2, and I would hope you could tease out a few details when WB-8.1 is finished. Even if all it is - is similar to "Nuanced" results circa WB-7.

If the Alphas exit at 8 cusps, is it proper to extrapolate those 8 cusps would be the "leakers"?

Can a Polywell match the volumetric footprint of a fission reactor, could it power a sub? Subs, Carriers, DD's. that is the idea for the ONR interest. and it matches other ONR projects for electric Marine drives and lasers.

I think a private message to MSimon, providing examples and links concerning any members behavior, breaking of rules, WHATEVER, would have been appropriate.

This entire thread should be deleted and the conservation made private.

I saw that too. :-)

And no real mention of effective tax rates either... Ok.

Re: interesting tech

Liquid hydrocarbons will always have a place ~somewhere~. Right..... Liquid fuels reek of personal transportation, but yet even now, do we see the future with 300mph trains that are powered thru pantographs-electricity? No batteries required. In a Polywell world - 60 yrs from now, will we be drivin...
