For Throwback Thursday we have a blast from the past. We recently found in our archives a video of our very first shots with FF-1 on October 15, 2009. The cast of characters includes myself-- Eric Lerner-- and S. Krupakar Murali,, Abdel Haboub and, behind the video, except for a brief peek, Rezwan Razani, then the Executive Director of Focus Fusion Society. Note the very stripped-down equipment—one oscilloscope, two instruments. (We were really eager to fire right after we built the machine with the help of Dr. John Thomson.) Now we have six scopes and almost 30 streams of data coming from FF-2B. You’ll see the first shot at 5:50 in the video. At 8:00, the small bump on the right of the yellow line on the screen indicates a very small pinch, producing some fusion reactions, even in the first shot. But the big peak on the right of the same line, shown below, what we called the first pinch, doesn’t come until 20:49. You’ll note in the excitement I confused the two instruments traces, one measuring current and the other voltage, for a few minutes, but I got straightened out by the end of the video.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
