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.

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.

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".

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."
