Nice that Polywell is specifically mentioned. I think its the first mainstream article I've read that specifically mentions it.

Was just reading that.. Pretty positive comments from Boyle, who so far has seemed to be well in touch with the realities of the project.
And it's still nice to see they're possibly looking at +50% of the recent 7M$ for pB11 experimentation later on. And kinda nuts that everything Polywell fusion could be in the future is all mostly hanging on a "tiny" ~10M$ string. Compared to some other more popular projects (regardless which ones exactly; all have the same objective).

Which minds me. I had better do a post.

It's interesting that Nebel is now apparently not allowed to say anything.

If you're still reading, Rick, best of luck! We're all rooting for you here.

My latest at IECF (link above) discusses the blackout.
