I didn’t think anything would be better than the book, but the video turned out great!

I found the book “stable plasma torus” a tedious read. It kept looping over the same material.

I liked it better when it was called:

Plasma torus with sprinkles

Plasma based electromagnetic solar sail?

We are the Borg. Resistance is futile.

Stable? It looks bi-polar to me.

When that baby hits 88 mph you’re gonna see some serious shit.


#15

I wonder if they could use this technique for fusion reactors instead/in addition of the magnetic trap.

Critics Raved:

“it had so many twists!”

“the main hole was a bit disappointing as everything seemed to revolve around that.”

“it was a charged exploration of important matters.”
