First Light Fusion Technical Talks on Projectile Fusion

This animation shows a close up of the projectile/target interaction inside the reaction vessel for First Light Fusion. They electromagnetically launch a projectile to create inertial fusion. They do not use a laser. the target implodes faster than the projectile. They were getting velocity multipliers by 10X back in 2019. They think the onward path…

This animation shows a close up of the projectile/target interaction inside the reaction vessel for First Light Fusion. They electromagnetically launch a projectile to create inertial fusion. They do not use a laser. the target implodes faster than the projectile. They were getting velocity multipliers by 10X back in 2019. They think the onward path to a reactor is better for this approach.

In 2019, Nick Hawker, First Light Fusion CEO, presented for the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Technology of Fusion Energy (Fusion CDT) at the University of York.

A presentation by Dr Dave Chapman, a senior scientist in First Light Fusion’s Numerical Physics team, was given as an invited contribution to the Transport in Nonideal Plasmas mini-workshop at the American Physical Society’s Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP) annual conference on Thursday 12th November 2020. The talk outlines the initial findings of ongoing work into understanding the sensitivity of predicted target performance to modelling uncertainties in the uniaxially-driven fusion experiments of Derentowicz

Future of Electric Cars is Locked

We know what will happen in the next two years with electric cars because we know what electric car factories and battery factories have already been built. Electric Car Factories take time to build and scale production. Battery factories and battery supplies take time to establish. This is the same as in 1943 in WW2.…

CALB 40GWh LFP Battery Expansion and Targets 500 GWh by 2025

China Lithium Battery Technology (CALB) has started building the thrid phase of an LFP lithium battery factory with manufacturing capacity of 40GWh and supporting assembly lines for battery modules and battery packs. For the first stage, CALB plans to invest 5 billion yuan ($786.275 million) in 10GWh manufacturing facilities. The first phase will output a…

SpaceX Starlink Revenue Forecast to 2025

We know several new things about the growth of SpaceX Starlink and plans to increase mass production of the fully reusable Starship. Spacex President and COO Gwynn Shotwell talked about a target of one Starship rocket every day. This means the need for 4000 Raptor engines every year. In a recent SpaceX staff presentation, SpaceX…

Fact Mix 832: Zozo

An atmospheric odyssey of weirdo club music that leans heavily towards the freaky, the weighty and the steamy. Lurching into life with DJ Wolfi Bernreuther’s ‘ZYX Mini Mix 2018’, a frazzled and giddy snapshot of a time before COVID-19, Zozo’s Fact Mix charts the long and complex transition from tentative, socially distant interaction back to…
