I wanted to throw out a question and see what some general consensus/opinion on the Polywell fusion power system is. After I first read about the precursor (Farnsworth fuser) and was initially interested greatly as I had similiar thoughts before really researching fusion. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the ITER project being pursued currently... but like us all I have hope that it might work. So, what are your thoughts, comments, criticism? Also, why havn't particle accelerators as a method of fusion been pursued?
