    This is the JT-60SA.


    Quote

    It was planned for JT-60 to be disassembled and then upgraded to JT-60SA by adding niobium-titanium superconducting coils by 2010. It was intended for the JT60SA to be able to run with the same shape plasma as ITER. The central solenoid was designed to use niobium-tin (because of the higher (9 T) field).

    Construction of the tokamak officially began in 2013, and it was to continue until 2020 with first plasma planned in September 2020. Assembly was completed in the spring of 2020, and in March 2021 it reached its full design toroidal field successfully, with a current of 25.7kA. A test of the poloidal field coils in March 2021 suffered a short circuit leading to a lengthy investigation and repair.

  • A curious comment buried in a deleted post on Reddit.

    Without context, it could be read as pertaining to either a positive or negative result.

    This "Archive Snapshot" was the best I could find. Looks like the philosophical science question was knocked down pretty hard by the community.
    It was originally posted by the Huw Price who also happens to be a Cambridge Professor of Philosophy.
    He wrote a paper last year it seems Risk and Scientific Reputation: Lessons from Cold Fusion
    It isn't really a scientific paper, more like a speculative one.
    I think having a philosophical debate about "cold fusion" would be healthy if the man would hold an audience.

    Huw Price's paper is actually a chapter of a book (still being assembled AFAIK). Huw is a friend of mine and a supporter of the field. We (the ISCMNS) are discussing a possible meeting perhaps similar to the one you suggest, sometime in 2024.

    Sandra D. Mitchell might be a good fit for such a meeting. Though I doubt she knows the field, she could still present on her work on Integrative Pluralism and scientific practice.

  • WATER WARS - EVEN IN EUROPE.


    Italian utility in hot water for draining a picturesque lake to send water to Rome
    The legal battle the local community is waging against Acea could set an important new environmental precedent in the European Union.
    thebulletin.org



    Francesco Falconi stood at the edge of Lake Bracciano, a volcanic depression filled with crystalline water and surrounded by bucolic wooded hills and ancient Italian villages. “This is where I used to dive into the lake,” Falconi, a lawyer who grew up in one of those villages, says, pointing to a rock on the lake’s periphery. Jump from there today, and you would probably wake up in the nearest emergency room.

    In 2017, Lake Bracciano, a basin of around 22 square miles, faced an existential crisis. It started to dry up as a local utility, the Acea Group, diverted its waters to quench the thirst of the Italian capital during a severe drought. Residents of the surrounding villages were able to stop the water company from draining the lake, but the damage was done. Habitat and ecosystems were lost, and the lake has never fully recovered. Now, they are bringing the company to court for environmental crimes.

    The trial could set a precedent throughout Europe, by creating more public awareness about environmental crimes that involve water use and drainage, a long-overlooked issue, in addition to water pollution. It could inspire other small communities to fight to safeguard their natural havens and force big cities to find new solutions to deal with their water needs.

    The Lazio region, where Rome and Lake Bracciano are located, is rich in lakes, rivers, and pristine springs, but frequent droughts, climate change, and terrible water management are creating a recurring state of crisis....continues..

    That's a name I am quite familiar with regarding scalar wave EM transmissions.

    I do remember you bringing his name up on a few occasions. Someone thought his comment was important enough on Reddit to put it onto the Internet Archive. My understanding is he is also quite close to Lord Martin Rees? I would be curious to know what Lord Rees's view is on this condensed matter nuclear physics field we are so fond of?

    Having a healthy debate that brings the scientific reasoning and freedom of speech that Cambridge is known for would be truly incredible.

    It would be another step in examining what we understand as a species regarding the physical matters of our reality.
    Having a debate with people who are well versed in the various overlapping scientific domains would be monumental for CMNS.
    The public and general scientific community can critically examine the facts of the presenters with open discourse and academic rigor.

    Or maybe this is my over active imagination dreaming up something not to manifest in this timeline.😅

  • Carl Page Advocates for Nuclear Energy and Accelerated Innovation at Japan's Innovation for Cool Earth Forum (ICEF)

    TOKYO — October 4, 2023 — Anthropocene Institute President and Co-Founder Carl Page addressed conference participants in Tokyo on the topic of fusion at the 10th Innovation for Cool Earth Forum (ICEF), an annual event supported by Japanese government agencies. Page stressed the importance of accelerating governance and technology to keep atmospheric conditions comfortable on Earth. “We don’t have a choice about whether geoengineering happens,” he said. “We only get to choose whether people with good intentions do it.”

    With moderation from Sally Benson and Nobuo Tanaka, Page joined panelists Scott Hsu, Takaya Taguchi, and Yutaka Kamada on stage. Page favors climate restoration, accelerating innovation, protecting biodiversity, and making industrial-quality, clean energy ten times cheaper. “If we buy 20 times more energy and it’s ten times cheaper, humanity will benefit,” he said.

    He added that we would improve our security and health and end poverty. Industry would see supply chain costs go down substantially. Additional benefits include increased biodiversity as farmland use becomes efficient, and truly circular supply chains are adopted.

    He then advocated for nuclear power. “Nuclear,” he said, “is dangerous, but only to the fossil fuel industry…Never apologize for the safety of nuclear power. You have a one in 12 chance of being killed by fossil fuel pollution. You have a 0.00% chance of being killed by nuclear waste.”

    Page talked about the lives saved by the current nuclear power fleet in the U.S. and the lives lost when Germany and Japan closed nuclear plants and became more reliant on coal for electricity. Page estimated that nuclear energy in Japan in the course of its history may have prevented 300,000 premature deaths due to air pollution averted. Following the Fukushima accident, Japan has only restarted one fifth of its nuclear reactors as of August 2023. Page told the audience in Japan that global industrial power costs could be reduced through adoption of nuclear energy.

    In closing, he advocated for accelerated innovation akin to what happens in Silicon Valley, where a process much like nuclear fission occurs. “When a company exits, it sends out high-energy people with big wads of cash, and they can start the next company without asking for permission or seeking financing from banks,” he said. “That can transform the economy fast.”
