It concerns me that they don't seem to understand the difference between the words "can" and "could".

And to answer the D/T question, yes, it is a very hot chain with significant activation, embrittlement, and flux concerns.

I also have to wonder about patent overlap with Polywell. Afterall, it seems to me that there is significant prior art in the concept of pinched cusps, be they line or point.

Earlier LM presentations addressed the limited lifetime of compact military use. The plan was a drop in power unit that could be refurbished. Gas turbine engines also have cycle lifetimes and are high maintenance. Utility power units would be built differently.

But Polywell is a poorly funded (if that) red headed stepchild. No one mentions it anymore. Even LPP is better funded from what I can tell.

Found the quote... How did I miss that?
It seems Lockheed has a real prototype??? Am I reading that right? No big announcement?

Two CFR prototypes were introduced by Lockheed Martin on December 25, 2017. The first is the T4B, which is two meters long, one meter in diameter, and about 20 tons in weight. The T4B can produce one megawatt of energy. The second prototype, the TX, is 18 meters long, seven meters in diameter, and about 2,000 tons in weight. The TX can produce 200 megawatts of energy. However, Lockheed Martin believes the TX’s weight can be reduced to 200 tons.

But nothing about p-B11 aneutronic fusion?

I believe these are proposed prototypes, not built and tested prototypes. I think this is old news to keep the project interest up.

they make is sound like they have the brass ring.

Like I said, a rehash. No announcement... Like 'breakthrough Fusion' splashed in the news. Just a new publication of old stuff.

'Did' vs 'Could' vs 'Wished We Did'.

What exactly is going on in regards with the LM fusion reactor stories? I do not think it is all plain sailing. This story "Lockheed Compact Reactor design is 100 times worse than initial claims", just appeared in

It is all talking about old news with no real updates, no data, results. NBF is rehashing an old story. New date means nothing.
