Better Software?

Greetings All; Might it be possible to change to a better forum software package? Many systems have the ability to comment to a comment and have them grouped as sub-treads. With this characteristic, if you aren't interested in the direction of a sub-thread, you can skip to the next prime comment and...

Questions for a Polywell FAQ

1. Who currently owns the Bussard Polywell Patents? 2. Is the non-profit organization set up by Bussard still in existance, and if so, what is its organizational structure? Is it a 501(c)3 organization? 3. Does EMC2 have a published Plan of Action and Milestones for reaching commercial fusion power?...

Couldn't the parts of the WB-7 be re-used as half the WB-8?

Folks, My most sincere apologies for leading this discussion off track. The fall of civilization was an off hand comment. Please drop it! My real concern, is WHAT IS NEXT ON THE AGENDA (I know, don't yell!). If EMC2 is going to be embargoed due to Navy interference, what can we do to go around the e...

Only Dr. Nebel can say at this point and he isn't talking. I thought the Polywell design was owned by EMC2 and Dr. Nebel was a consultant to them. Does EMC2 not have an ongoing, always updated business POA&M? If all Navy support, due solely to politics, were to disappear tomorrow, what would be nex...

Unfortunately, entire civilizations can fall in 15 years. Ours seems intent on nudging that way. But on a more personal note, it is also a goodly portion of the rest of my life, and I would REALLY like to see humanity unchained before I die. So; is there a Plan of Action with Milestones to get to t...

TallDave, Thank you for your quick response. I understand that "brem" takes energy out of the system which then needs to be replaced by more input. BUT if that input energy were derived in part by the radiated "brem", that would improve the overall system efficiency, no? From what I have been able t...

Brem Losses = Gains?

Greetings from a Newbie; I hope this hasn't been discussed to death. I tried looking for the topic but either I missed it or it isn't there. Folks keep talking about "brem" losses. But isn't it just another form of energy produced by the system as a whole; one that might, with some thought, be captu...

Given that it is a Navy contract, the data obtained may be classified and may never be publishable in an open forum; one of the pitfalls in accepting the filth lucre.
