As you say, Art, it is great that folks actually run the experiments without a principle regard for when the theories say it's a no-go-er. It's not really a 'scientific' approach, but it is surely an engineering one, and one which I [hopefully clearly] never cease to garner support for.

The main motivation, though, seems to focus on the presumed n*tau = f(x,B^4) but it's already said that the theory breaks down to explain why the experiment runs at all. It can't have it both ways, either we're into territory where the theory applies, or the n*tau = f(x,B^4) theory doesn't apply! So I can't really see how a useful discussion on theory can be perpetuated for this experiment and we will have to wait for experimental results, just as with Polywell.

I guess the corollary of these two points is to say that it is an experiment to pursue, but there is nothing that particularly suggests B^4 scaling except for hopeful thinking - much as Polywell has - though, in fairness, hopeful thinking is a trait of humans that got us out of the trees.

The Polywell has delivered indisputable evidens that speaking to the public on google video might result in funding. :roll:
