The Bussard Fusion Reactor Is Set For The Next Research Stage. Private emails are circulating reports that Dr. Robert Bussard has come to an agreement with the US Navy to resume fusion research. M. Simon broke the “news” sometime after midnight last night August 22, 2007. See:
Other sources are saying the agreement closed on August 21st and that Dr Bussard has hired two Los Alamos PhDs for assistance. Laboratory preparations are underway in Santa Fe New Mexico. Dr. Bussard is said to have a goal of reportable results in March of 2008.
It seems the purpose of the funding is to prepare to completion a repeatable test unit using the principles Dr. Bussard has developed that can be observed by independent reviewers.
Absent an official press release the information is very noteworthy. There is an underlying theme of discretion about the agreement. Everyone should keep in mind that all of the information herein is many steps away from first source and due to the parties wishes for discretion may not be directly confirmed.
I do wish to add that for whatever reason the Bussard research ship ran aground, I wish to express my respects to the officials responsible for putting it back to sea. Should the research continue and develop into the potential Dr. Bussard’s physics express, these officials will have made their organization a historic marker in mankind’s technical development. If not, their integrity and commitment for research and development remains intact providing the good fight done with honor on behalf of the American people.
Even without hard confirmed news it is still a day to be proud to be an American.
