Re: Polywell Visions: Food

2. Food will be farmed at extremely high density in 100% artificial conditions, eliminating many of the current problems of agriculture and creating many new ones. a.With abundant energy extremely intensive aquaponics using artificial lighting will provide high density production year around. NASA,...

Re: Fusion vs. Fission

Do depleted uranium rounds make a dent in the waste volume? or is production volume to low to make a difference. Because Iraq and Afganistan sound like good places to store the waste, preferably near potable water sources. Undepleted uranium is in contact with every water supply in the world. It is...

Ahhhh I see so we can still drive cars, but the fuel is made from air. I was just thinking about it from the battery perspective too, with A123's new batts electric cars probably aren't that far off, and they can just plug in at home. We need polywell here in hawaii, I pay 40 cents per kilowatt/h it...

If you asked an anthropologist, which came first tool usage/technology or homo sapiens sapiens, the answer is technology/tools. (my wife is an anthropology major, so I actually got to do that, lol) As for your (and your wife's) assertion about tools coming after homo sapiens, are you both positive ...

Fire Departments still need hydrants You just had to go and burst my bubble. Your right fire is subsidized by rate payers and there is no way in hell catchment or AWG could supply them. They cant afford the pipes either. So we must conclude utilities will never convert for political safety reasons....

Pardon my ignorance - what is backflow, and what does that have to do with the EPA? backflow occurs when i flush a fire hydrant line outside your home and your line sucks water/air into the system, think venturi. Now imagine if that open line sucked in wastewater, or some other contaminant. That en...

Seems plausible that every semi-large+ ship in the world would become Polywell electric. Azipods are becoming the norm and all that remains is to power them with a Polywell rather than some other X-generator (X= turbo, diesel, ...). Seems like an easy conversion since your drive train is electric, ...

I'm thinking purifying the captured rain water would be more energy efficient than condensing it out of the atmosphere? Here in hawaii we have the wettest place on earth in Kauai, and Iao Valley in Maui is a close second, and even there it does not rain everyday. So for everyday it does not rain yo...

. . .or for strike aircraft, you could build a real aircraft instead of a silly airship, just as everyone has known to do for about 100 years. I'm grinning each time I post on this issue so don't get upset, but honestly, you have a really, Really, REALLY bad idea here. :-) I have been going into hy...

That doesn't even include the 100-200 tons of polywell and weaponry, the said dreadnought would contain. That said, three hindenburgs worth of volume in with a lifting body shape, could provide such a lift capacity. Also armor for lasers may not consist of actual armor, but instead heating the surro...

Is this 1st generation estimates or theoretical minimum weights. Or do we not know sh** and are making everything up. What possible unforeseen development could enable tiny reactors, ie 1000T coils, nanotechnology composite structures, and other such hypothetical advancements could affect this estim...
