Fusion Report 15 May 008

In Picture Of WB-7 Bussard Fusion Test Reactor Available I reported that there was a picture of the WB-7 Fusion Test Reactor available. (Well duh). I must sadly report that it is no longer available. Instead EMC2 Fusion has replaced it with a picture of a plasma test of the fusion reactor using Helium gas. Yeah! We are another small step on the way to fusion power. Or to proving you can't get there from here. Depending.

That's a seriously sci-fi looking picture.

The image of WB7 on EMC2's webpage very much impressed me - so I took a copy of the picture. I cannot attach images to this comment, but if any enthusiast reading this forum would like the pic of the WB7chamber then email me, saying who you are, and I can send a copy back to you.

Sorry folks. It has just been pointed out to me that the pic of WB7 is not mine to give away, by email or otherwise. So if you want it you'll have to wmail EMC2 and ask. Sorry again.

Martin C: Yes, it would be terrible if you spread the word on this technology. Plus, I'm sure you're robbing EMC2 of millions in licensing fees - don't you know how much stock photography goes for??

If EMC2 hasn't attached a CC license to those pictures, they should.

I'll ask EMC2 to repost the picture and make them available for news reports and non-commercial use.
