It has been a long wait.

So fusion is no longer twenty years down the road?

I am cursing in happiness. Christmas? In June?

I invite everyone to partake in a a little of your favorite drink across the globe. This is the paper I've been waiting for since I started watching this thing years and years ago.

Dr Park, Dr Nebel, thank you. Now all we need is a room temperature super conductor to make some really neat small designs.

But now I don't know if I want to donate to Focus Fusion on IndieGoGo next paycheck....

EDIT: Added a screen grab of the WB8.1 pic from the paper

From the numbering scheme I get over 15000 test shots, no show stoppers mentioned.

I just scanned the paper. They do not mention neutron measuring, nor actually fusion rates. :?

Certainly a breath of fresh air after so long without real news. Still I have mixed feelings. The high beta plasma confinement results are encouraging, and reason for optimism. On the other hand, we were hoping for data on loss scaling, and we're still waiting. The talk about increased electron power gives me the impression that the data this paper is based on is several years old, but at least it's newer than the WB-7.1 results we wanted released. Mention of D-T fusion is a bit discouraging. Has EMC2 given up on D-D and p-B11? I get the feeling they're going to go for a D-T (or possibly D-D) demonstration reactor before they think about trying p-B11. However, they may just be demonstrating caution in their published papers.

I believe the device in the picture is WB-8.0. I'm not certain there's going be a WB-8.1, though it would be nice.

And fusion is always twenty (or thirty, or fifty) years down the road until you pass it by and see it in your rearview mirror.
Temperature, density, confinement time: pick any two.

Just saw the paper when looking for something on J.Y. Park. I'm going to let Tom know it is out. He had been hinting at this a few weeks ago in a conversation we were having about some boards I'm doing for him.

I'll also alert him to this thread.
