IEC Fusion for Dummies v5.7

Interesting stuff...

Spherical fusion containment system, as opposed to the toroidal Tokamak?

It certainly is interesting!

Actually, confinement is the wrong idea. The magnetic fields push at the electrons, while the electrons push back at the magnetic fields, this creates a potential well that acts an accelerator for the fuel ions.

Polywell or IEC fusion is more akin to a vacume tube than a Tokamak.

I have decided to do an end run around the government by designing an open source fusion test reactor.

Any one care to help? You can start here:
