Navy Funds Dr. B

I just got an e-mail saying the Dr. got funded. The Navy contract. You can read limited details at the above url.

When I get more confirmation, I'll post it.

This time it is for real.

I couldn't say anything, but looking at the long list of people on the e-mail list of the communication he sent me, I'd say the word is out. No more sitting on pins and needles wishing I could tell you.

And all the publicity from folks like you, and websites like this, evidently were key to making it happen.

Everybody, take a polite bow as I applaud!

I don't like the link back to the powerandcontrol blog. Is there some other source that can be confirmed, or perhaps some other details that can be shared?

If it pans out, this is terrific news!

Hopefully there will be a press release soon.

I have not been specifically told to tell the world yet, or I would post the contents of the e-mail. Evidently the contract was signed on the 21st to supply the funds remaining on the old contract (so evidently the "no cost extension" of a few months ago that set off the refunding rumor was not so spurious after all). If all goes well with the small-scale part, there appears to be an intent to fund the whole thing, but I'd have to call that still speculative.

Keep watching the emc2fusion.org website, and maybe there will be an update with a press release.

I very much hope that this time the research can occur in a more public fashion. The word is out, massively, over the last 10 months or so, and I see no benefit in going under cover again. But I don't make the rules.
