TVA may restart construction of Bellefonte 1 and 2, two unfinished nuclear reactors

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is requesting that the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reinstates the construction permits for two unfinished reactors at its Bellefonte site in Alabama. It continues to pursue regulatory approval for two further units at the site. Bellefonte 1 (1213 MWe, 88% complete) and 2 (1213 MWe, 50% complete) are pressurized …

Single Crystal Superconductors and Quantum Traffic Jam analysis of Superconductor electrons

Single Crystal Superconductor – clear scientific study of new Iron SuperconductorResearch groups have created versions of a class of widely studied superconducting compounds that are each one continuous crystal, rather than composed of many crystalline grains. These single-crystal materials are important achievements because they display better properties than polycrystalline types and are easier to study. …

Inertial electrostatic confinement completes WB7 test, results are under review

The Bussard fusion design, also known as inertial electrostatic confinement or Polywell fusion, has completed the WB7 test which was a replication of the promising WB6 test which was showing a breakthrough in low-cost fusion power. The results of the first-phase test are now being reviewed by the funders and experts in the fusion energy …
