all the parts ready to go ! almost there!


Requesting Sir Richard Hull to begin the review?
maybe a quick look at "Neptunium" https://www.youtube.com/user/Neptuniumcritical
May increase the odds of this project well over 10 years in the making coming slowly to completion.
Next week first plasma .. and unless unforeseen event, first fusion by April 15th..
Thank you all for your time and consideration
Vince/ Neptunium

Very good work and a nice set up to be sure. All the best.

You are now in the plasma club.
