A newly published paper in Nature Physics reporting breakthrough results from experimental work on C-2U targeting the key goals of achieving and maintaining fusion temperatures and alpha particle ash removal. Stable plasma was already achieved, but temperature was not. This is the science milestone that TAE needed to make their approach successful. Norman, as I understand it is extending these results to prove scaling.

I wonder if Polywell can use the neutral beam results that TAE has pioneered, after all, plasma heating is also the missing key to make Polywell's approach successful as EMC2, too, has shown containment with proof of Grad's postulate on cusps?


That was really an interesting read, if with the scaling they can confirm the fusion improvement rate of20/30 times as well as the possibility to use it to extract Alphas this could become an essential tool for everyone making fusion research.
Look, stars!

Youtube thought I'd like this:

Nicely done "Verge Science" video on TAE and deep learning.
