    Aneutronic, happy, and designing a 100MW reactor with direct conversion:

    I don’t know why one would design a 100MW reactor until one has a functioning above-unity research reactor. Or, put another way, anyone can “design” a 100MW reactor — call me when they start bending metal.

    They are running a lot of shots on their research reactor, and with $90 million in venture capital they probably have some spare bandwidth. NIF’s been doing the same thing with their LIFE design. Heck, General Fusion pretty much started with a production-scale reactor design.

    In any case, I’m pretty much rooting for everybody and it’s nice to see Tri-Alpha talking for a change.
