Looks like it's not well researched. First line at the top leads one to believe the Poly has only been funded for 3 years. That is wrong by more than two decades. The Poly was first funded in 1987 and the Navy first stepped in in 1992. Whoever wrote that funding started in 2009 needs to go back and start checking their facts.

I can't more than glance at the rest as it seems too unreliable a source to me. And to be honest, the whole notion to create a blog about a blog sounds pretty whacky and counterproductive. I have to wonder why this person would ever so waste his time when people are obviously better served to simply read at T-P.

GIThurster,

Actually the idea was first suggested in the 1960's. With work done by O. A. Lavrent’ev. Check out these papers:


0. A. Lavrent’ev, Uk. Fiz. Zb. 8, 440 (1963).

0. A. Lavrent’ev, Investigations of an Electmmagnetic Trap. Magnitnye Lovushki Vypusk (Naukova Dumka, Kiev, 1968), p. 77 [for an English translation, see Atomic Energy Commission Report No. AEC-TR-7002 (Rev)].

0. A. Lavrent’ev, Ann. NY Acad. Sci. 251, 152 (1975).




The Navy got 10 million in 2009 (As stated in the blog).

You're not paying attention.

The Poly first received funding in 1987 and received its first US Navy funding in 1992. If the writer of this blog knew this and decided only to note the 2009 funding, he is a liar who should not be involved with the Poly for any reasons. If he did not know this and decided to create a blog, he is too stupid to be blogging. Anyone can go on wiki and get a straight scoop. This is disinformation.
