    What if a petition was started to get FF the money it needs to get this thing cookin? Perhaps a petition for diversification of funds for fusion alternatives? This is probably redundant, but… why not? 100k votes required now for this. Guess the Death Star petition might have had something to do with this increase from only 25K or?..

    Funding is more nuanced that a petition i am afraid. Sure it can’t hurt. But i doubt it will help. We (the scientists) are often our own worst enemies as well.

    You may be better off with Crowd Sourcing. A petition is pretty limited. The word of this project just isn’t getting out on the street, yet…

    Crowd-funding is tricky. You tend to need a very concrete funding goal and attached project result. The most successful crowd-funded projects also have some way of distributing their resulting product to supporters. None of that is really applicable here. The best you could do is promise some t-shirts, and get another year or two of development with a successful campaign.
