Submission + - Dr Robert Bussard dies (classicalvalues.com)

david.given writes: "Dr Robert W. Bussard, nuclear physicist and fusion physics researcher, died from cancer on October 6. Most people here will know him for the Bussard Ramjet, a theoretical space drive that uses magnetic fields to scoop up interstellar hydrogen to power a fusion drive. In recent years he has been working on the Polywell electrostatic inertial confinement fusion reactor, which promises to produce a cheap and simple fusion power plant without the cost and complexity of magnetic confinement. Rumours are that the Polywell was recently funded by the US Navy and may start producing results in 2008."
