The Parade

The job of a politician is to find a parade and get in front of it.

Salvage WB-6 and give it new magnets instead of building a new one from scratch? Or would that make experiments less meaningful? Other than the vacuum pumps there is nothing useful to salvage from WB-6. It is a pulsed machine. Continuous operation of WB-7x is a requirement for scaling up to WB-100M...
