Have you been waiting for a good opportunity to voice your support for aneutronic fusion?

The Abell Foundation have written to ask for a US Senate hearing into funding alternative fusion research.
This could be a crucial time to promote aneutronic fusion by contacting the Energy committee head Sen. Ron Wyden, and/or your local representatives. 

Please read the following link:

Please SHARE this post.

If you're not ready to write to a politician yet, this could be a great time to visit 
www.focusfusion.org 
and get more informed about the exciting prospects for aneutronic fusion to change the world for the better.

THANK YOU for your support.

Another miscalculation I'm sure...

Scientists working for NASA are investigating the potential for aneutronic, proton-Boron-11 fusion-powered space propulsion.

"An innovative nozzle concept enables useful propulsive thrust ... some fraction of the energy is extracted via direct conversion into electricity".

I was doing a little research on nuclear space propulsion systems and have had the though that the DPF technology being developed at LPP might be the basis of an alternative to Nuclear Thermal (fission based) rockets. I came to the G+ site today seeking that kind of information and was pleased to see this post. I am going to try to wade through Nasa's paper (I am NOT a rocket scientist).

I know already that the Nasa paper does not focus (pun unintended) on a particular technique for the anuetronic fusion plant, but with the progress LPP is making, it seems like a logical candidate.

Alternative Energy Blog (Dec 25th) comments on a paper recently published in PRL by Gianluca Gregori and Brian Reville.

"Non-linear responses for the magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) flows of plasmas in magnetic fields makes controlling plasma for use in alternative energy harvesting particularly frustrating.

It is one of the reasons why avenues such as magnetic torus confinement have taken so long to produce effective results. It is behind the huge expense of the widely-backed multinational ITER project.

Yet such naturally produced non-linear effects can be utilized effectively in approaching nuclear fusion power from other directions such as those in the Tri-Alpha Energy project, the Bussard Polywell idea and that of the New Jersey-based Dense Plasma Fusion developments."

Lawrenceville Plasma Physics Announces New Collaboration Agreement with Plasma Simulations Group, University of Toyama, Japan. Since the PSG has worked on simulations in this field for a long time, they were able to produce a preliminary simulation in a just few weeks. This simulation is a first approximation of the process that leads to the formation of plasmoids in a plasma focus device.

The headline text "hoax or breakthrough" of the video really get's my goat. Whether or not Focus Fusion will be able break the energy "break even" point is still in question, but there is no credible evidence that it is any kine of hoax.

Supporting research into Dense Plasma Focus fusion energy
Introduction

The goal of the Focus Fusion Society is to bring people together to pursue the dream of safe, cheap, clean, unlimited energy from aneutronic fusion, to ensure that the ensuing technology is made available to everyone, and to foster a pro-research ethic and pro-fusion culture.
