UPDATE - Re: The Occasional Fusor.net Fund Raiser - 2019 Edition

Re: The Occasional Fusor.net Fund Raiser - 2019 Edition

I'm reluctant to put a number out there, but if everybody who frequents the site contributed ~$20, that'd cover it for a year...

Re: "The amateur scientists tackling the global energy crisis"

I do wish Paul could get the credit he so justly deserves as prime mover in the internet genesis of amateur fusion. I just hope that the adoration, admiration and recognition of those here is enough to make him proud, 'cause that is all he seems to get....To paraphrase R. Lee Ermey in the movie "Fu...
