Incoming Energy Secretary On Bussard Fusion

In this Google Tech Talk from about 28 February 2007 you can see Incoming Energy Secretary Steven Chu discussing what he knows about Bussard Fusion about 1 hour 1 minute and 10 seconds into the video. The rest of the talk is about alternative energy, power sources for the future, and how to run a good development program. And what does he know about Bussard Fusion Reactors? Not much. He is looking into it.

I got the heads up from cybrbeast at Talk Polywell.

Update: Dave Price at Dean Esmay has a few thoughts.

He's looking into it, huh? He's going to find out what reputable science already knows: there's a Google Talk, one informal "paper" submitted in absentia to obscure conference, and a bunch of wild internet speculation, mostly by people who have no background, experience, or involvement in fusion research.

Good luck on that, Chief Engineer™.
