DOE Award to Zap Energy
for Fusion Pilot Plant Design
The DOE’s Milestone-Based Fusion Development Program aims to
‘help bring fusion toward technical and commercial viability.’
The award of $5 million in federal funding will contribute to the development of a pilot plant using Zap’s sheared-flow-stabilized Z-pinch fusion technology.

Fusion Gain and Triple Product for the Sheared-Flow-Stabilized Z Pinch
Triple product is useful when comparing different fusion concepts, such as looking at how sheared-flow-stabilized Z-pinch devices differ from more traditional fusion devices, such as the tokamak, or other fusion approaches, and can also be used as a simplified proxy for Q.
This may be the fastest most economical approach to commercial fusion

DA VINCI'S IMPOSSIBLE "TOKAMAK DRAWING"
This week, a researcher at the Fusion Plasma Physics Department of the Hungarian Centre for Energy Research, Daniel Dunai, has unearthed in yet another trove of Leonardo's documents a sketch depicting what appears to be ... a tokamak.
The exploration of the now-digitized Leonardo Da Vinci notebooks continues to amaze the worldwide scientific community. A few weeks ago, engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) analyzed a series of drawings that clearly indicated that, two centuries before Newton, the Renaissance artist and polymath had devised experiments to investigate the nature of gravity.
