New superconductor that works at 180K+

This is really cool stuff but not so cool as it used to be(pun intended):
http://superconductors.org/181k_pat.htm

Could these types of materials be used to aid the fusion process?

Re: Hyperspace possible?

<r>I thought I should post an update. I found out awhile ago that UK scientists in the European Space Agency have generated gravity in the lab. It looks remarkably like the test device for Heim theory:<br/> <URL url="http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/scientists_find_evidence_for_artifical_gravity_10282...

Re: Focus Fusion talk @ Google

<t>I watched this and it was a very interesting video. One thing I don't quite understand, what is up with 2 million dollars? It seems that everybody needs 2 million in order to be able to solve the world's problems. IEC wants 2 million and Focus Fusion just needs 2 million. <br/> <br/> The spiel se...

Re: Polywell size? How small can you get it?

Forgive my ignorance Tom, but why was the cage built "inside" the bell jar? They are used to shield from electromagnetic radiation right? Was there equipment inside the bell jar that needed to be protected?

Re: FAQ - Interesting factoids related to fusion

7. The D-D reaction does do a rare He4 + gamma reaction with a phenomenal 17mev output energy, but only once in about every 20,000 fusions.

Do you know if anybody is looking at what causes this rare reaction and how the make it not so rare?

I've never been able to get these animations to work. Any idea what needs to be done?

New Stellarator design

This looks like an interesting article. What do you guys think of the idea?

Re: Webcam Failure in Fusor Use

Does a Fusor product significant magnetic fields and could transient current in the cable created from magnetic fields cause damage to the web cam? I seem to remember reading that you could create magnetic pulses in a Fusor and that you would use a Faraday cage to protect equipment from this.
