How well do you know what is really going on with Polywell Joe?
Many Soviet staff became outdated today, but the Soviet theoretical school of physics has very strong roots. And e.g. Soviet plasma physicists of my generation are still competitive in USA job market. Though the most of them are Jews and not Russians if that matters.
And how I hate that the part of which I am? Do I hate today someone? No. You are wrong.
For me it matters not who someone is based on heritage. It matters more for more who they are today. As for your hate, maybe that was too strong a word, but I am basing your lack of love for Russian and Russian Soviets based in your earlier comments regarding what they did to Georgians, both before and after the Soviet collapse.
But why you say that someone is higher than me? In physics?
Has that person got academic education in physics? Or your acidity causes with my dethronement of Polywell.
Well Joeseph, I did not say whether or not you are higher or lower. I said that you think people don't take you seriously. This quote above lends more evidence to that. And yes, surely you are not the best in physics. And that has nothing to do with a topic you do not actually know things about (Polywell).
Yes, I am still stating that Polywell especially at high densities (here people talk about 10^22) never will work as predicted – never ions will oscillate harmonically around the center. Because of low (fractions of mm order) Debye length of dense plasma and impossibility to separate charges in distances on orders exceeding Debye length.
Please, answer on this point without personification who is higher and who lower.
My point is that you can have your opinion. It is fine with me. But I would offer that you actually don't know what is going on with Polywell. You do not know densities, or anything. You only talk on supposition. You may be right, you may be wrong. But it just may be a lunatic you are looking for. <grin>.
You have never read a real report on Polywell work, nor have you seen anything with actual details from the last years of work. Do you really know what EMC2 have been and are doing? You have no idea Joe. At least with Rossi, he has this incessant need to keep broadcasting what he is doing. Even if it is a load of crap. Personally, I think EMC2 is working hard on real issues. I also think that they are making some sort of reall progress, as the funding has not been pulled (which is a real statement these days as funding bubbles are being popped left and right on government and military projects). I also think you have no idea what those issues are, nor whether they can be solved. These are real scientists doing real work. As with real science, one is never certain of the outcome. Pick from one of two approached, inductive or deductive. The fact remains, you will not know until you do the work and analyze it. And even then in real science, you may not know. You may well find a new question to answer.
Are you right about debeye length in high density polywell plasma. Who knows Joe. We shall see. But at a minimum Joe, the Polywell configuration does make neutrons from fusion. Will it make enough at full scale? Well that is what they are researching now, isn't it? So stop proclaiming you know the end answer when you don't. It is why folks don't want to talk to you here.
