Aerospace Engineer in Seek of Viable Airborne Power Source

You read that right. I work for a large aerospace manufacturer and I’ve landed here as a possible power source for future aircraft/spacecraft.

Nice to be here

You understand power, I assume, as an engineer. Currently the fusors are producing a net loss of energy of nearly a billion to one. The very best is a 500 million to one net loss over input energy to output fusion energy. No useful energy to be found here, only massive net losses. It's the truth. That's our story, and we are sticking to it.

Is this a broken thread? The first post doesn't seem to fit what is logical for an intro or are they assuming that is, somehow, an introduction we accept?

Well with such a warm welcome from the folks on the forums I think i'll just go. Thanks for the encouragement....

Ok, sorry but we do have rules to better communication. And yes, I did wonder if there was a bad link.

Another one bites th' dust while stating definitively he was investigating a power source for aircraft. Nothing mentioned about studying or doing fusion.

We often get people looking for a fusion power source for cars, home, cabins, etc. This was the first person looking for aircraft/spacecraft fusion power sources.

I am sure he will find a website or a google space that will warrant they have just the fusion power device he is looking for.

Likely an engineer with Lockheed... once a great icon of engineering, now mostly a black hole for military money. I wonder why they aren't using their own fusion reactor https://www.lockheedmartin.com/en-us/pr ... usion.html?

Yes, I knew that Lockheed had been working on what they thought would be a world beater fusion energy source. They kind of said it would only be a couple of years before there might be energy out of the thing when it first met the press. Thanks for the URL. Their video is now 7 years old, and zip. The site is all flash and glitz. Just goes to show you......That which is old, is old again.... or still.

Oh well....

Frank, being highly familiar with phpbb I know that new users can be restricted until full compliance is met. The name requirement and posting guidelines are plain as day so infractions really should not occur with the frequency we’re seeing them. Putting new user restrictions in place could solve a host of issues as well as minimize moderator/admin involvement.
