Submission + - Bussard Fusion Validated at (

dch24 writes: Ever since Robert W. Bussard did his Google Tech Talk: Should Google Go Nuclear?, the question of whether Polywell Fusion generation will make net power has hung in the air. Today, updated their web site with results from the efforts of a world-class team of physicists to verify Bussard's papers.

Bussard's experiments were WB-6; he lost the battle against cancer in 2007. EMC2fusion then built WB-7 and validated Bussard's experiments (with technical data given to the government sponsors but not to the public). Now the EMC2fusion site has pictures of WB-8 and plans for WB-D. The results are still unpublished, but this acknowledges that WB-7 was a success, and that EMC2fusion is moving forward with plans for a net power machine.
