Polywell article wins an award ...

Postby Tom Ligon » Tue May 05, 2009 9:50 pm

Hey, if you don't toot your own horn ... :D

The January 2008 Analog carried my "World's Simplest Fusion Reactor Revisited" article. The readers poll results have now been posted, and the readers voted it fact article for the year. The preceeding article, "The World's Simplest Fusion Reactor" won the same award for 1998.

Well done, Tom! You've done a great deal to widen the appeal, appreciation and amateur knowledge base of fusors and IEC systems, and the honour is deserved.

Looking for an update to your original article is what lead me to Polywell and to here in the first place. Thank you.

... and good luck with the next one!
I have both your Polywell articles (one from subscr, one not).

This will make an interesting longer story at some point, regardless of success or not (I'm reading Jaoa's VSL book right now, so, you probably have a future audience of at least one :)).

You have the right and deserve to blow your trumpet once in awhile. Because it allows others like us to say "Congratulations on your achievement".

Congratulations from down under.

Congratulations Tom, maybe someday in the future you'll get to follow up with "The Worlds Simplest Net Gain Fusion Reactor and How To Build It!"

As you know I gave you my kudos in an e-mail yesterday. But let me add my public congrats!

Let me add that I am glad you tooted your own horn. We don't see enough of you around here.
