I recall Dr. Park saying WB8 was like a Ferrari, something about you have to learn how to drive it or such. Also R Nebel in an interview when WB8 was first announced comparing the new machine to WB7. It would just make sense to me with a new machine that has no operators manual to bring it up to full power in stages. Generally a low power short does less damage than at full power in electrical devices.

I wouldn't be surprised if WB-8.1 was funded for continuous operation rather than pulse operation. Just my personal bias.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

A Ferrari eh? I think they build them somewhere near Bologna, oh the irony.

Based on past naming convention WB8.1 is a modification of WB8, not a new machine. And 8.1 is intended to investigate pB&J, not steady state. At least that is how I read the contract.

WB 9 on the other hand may be a comparable scale steady state machine.

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.
I like the p-B11 resonance peak at 50 KV acceleration. In2 years we'll know.

Or you could do a "Krivit" on him to get to the bottom of it all ....

Seems like you still don't get the difference between EMC2 and Rossi......

So two standards for scientific proof or more ... a spectrum of scepticism?

Icarus, when was the last time you noticed the title of that other thread?
Temperature, density, confinement time: pick any two.

Aaaargh!
Dude, get the difference please:
Product with secret ingredients and no peer review (Ecat) with claims that it will produce net energy ("worth buying").
versus
Test device with known process, evaluated with the scientific method and peer review (Polywell) with no claims that it will produce net energy, but the hope that it might ("worth researching").

You dont get the difference? Or do you just want to troll?

Normally I would say he just wants to troll. But in this case he actually seems to be controlling his temper and name calling so I am not sure. Maybe a bit o both.

I am eager to know what s your definition of "scientific standard".

Please explain it to us with a practical application to both, Rossi and EMC2.

May I suggest, please leave Rossi off this thread?
