PS: The best homage to Bussard this group could do is focus any political energy expended toward passing that legislation. It would ensure the most rapid development of Polywell Boron-11 energy -- if passed that is.
The political capital required has already been spent and the goods are on order.
If the experiment is successful no further government funds are required although they may be forthcoming. Industry is vitally interested in Polywell. If it fails I'll go looking for the next fusion target of opportunity.
