n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

Doesn't add much? It's essentially the Oct-Dec 2010 quarterly update with some background information for those who aren't already familiar with EMC2 and the Polywell. For those who are already on Talk Polywell, I should say it doesn't add anything. Still, I'm amused to see it here. :)

Why are you expecting anything in April?

I think that getting a lot of data in April would be a BAD thing. It would suggest to me that the Navy has decided not to procede.

About the best news I can imagine is no news (except for some indication that the option was awarded). I'm not totally convinced we will even see that.

After April, we will at least know something we don't today: whether the project has been extended beyond April.

OTOH, I'm not entirely sure how the fight over ARRA affects this project irrespective of results. Any opinions on that?

I wouldn't be surprised if Nebel gave an interview after April whatever happens, but I also wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't.

Grasshopper, young you are. Patience must have we.

I am sure that we will all know one way or the other before this year is out.

The really crappy part would be that it remains with difficulty, enough so the navy moves on to something else, but EMC2 says, we still have found nothing to say it will not work. It is just really hard to make it work.

I, for myself, choose to remain optimistic. If I can not reach out to the stars in a Polywell powered ship, then maybe my kids will. And I can assure you, my mad scientist wanna-be son will love it.

This, like any research projects, may not be a certain thing, but, it continues to show enough to keep pulling the string to see what is at the end. That in itself deserves some measure of faith. Or as Chris may say, it is a form of religion. :wink:

If anyone wants to talk to Rick, he will be at George Miiley's retirement in April.
