Hi, I've been reading about all of the experiments you guys do and I was wondering, if the Farnsworth Mark II,III series is so superior to the post ITT research why is it that no researcher makes a similar device?
Is it a financial or technical problem or may be a little of both?

The Farnsworth design of the Mark series is very different than the Farnsworth/Hirsch devices that fallowed.

I mean neutral gas injection will never surpass Ion fuel injection of the same fuel.
Electro-optic technique seems superior than the Bussard or Miely method.

Has anyone ever reversed the relationship between grids to the original anode in the center and cathode on the outside with the biased grid included?

You guys have more imagination then the formal researchers, you should try the old origal experiments, they seem superior in almost every way.

Like you said " oranges and apples".

Sorry to bother.
