How much tension between recent AMS-02 80 Gev dark matter and Lux-Xenon negative results?
Recent results ( Arxiv 1610.03840 and 1704.08258) suggest a WIMP dark matter particle near 80 Gev. See also https://phys.org/news/2017-05-possibility-cosmic-rays-due-dark.html
If this particle really...
At one point they were supposed to be running with plain ordinary hydrogen now, leading up to deuterium and tritium next year. Have they even restarted the plasma runs? I am pretty sure they are done building (or rebuilding) the beryllium and tungsten based "iter like wall" Woops, Google says...

It appears that Stuart Prager is “stepping down” as director of PPPL. I wish him well.
But in the announcement it refers to a “recent technical setback in the NSTX-U facility”.
I had not heard previously of this set...
Quantum Mechanics Without State Vectors
In this paper, SW proposes a formulation of QM based solely on density matrices.
Does this solve the problem? How is it similar or different to the AN formulation?
