trollwatch; my interest is in my investment in IP. My understanding of fusion is quite adequate to identify the key issues in what is PR puff but I lack interest in the fine detail of the science. But I get the impression there is more to your post and would not wish to join any sport between you and the others.

Fusion can kick the world out of the coming long term depression, that or WW3. I prefer the idea of Fusion.

By the time all the variables are sorted anyone involved will be worth billions. Its the uncertainty that offers the potential reward. No uncertainty = little to no reward. JET at Culham is a good place to be and Bezos backed company moving there too, others etc. No coincidence. I just want UK to beat ITER in France. Talk about spending billions!

I am always happy to see positive PR, but there are two big questions (and many smaller ones) it does not answer and which make the claim that a fusion plant (at least a commercial one) is achievable with existing technology and materials unproven. The big question is what would be the Q factor of such a plant (the gain expressed as power out over power in). A commercial plant would need a Q factor >10. Secondly, what is the engineering solution proposed for extracting the energy and conversion to electricity? FLF have an interesting approach to initiating fusion and that could be a step change if proven and scalable, but it is not a fusion plant.

hashertu, thanks. Let's have the whole press release, to save having to look it up. First Light Fusion Ltd - UK Science Minister Amanda Solloway MP to launch First Light Fusion’s maiden ‘Big Gun’ fusion campaign 17 Jun 2021 UK Science Minister Amanda Solloway MP to visit Oxford HQ and fire the first shot of First Light’s maiden fusion campaign using the ‘Big Gun’ ‘Big Gun’ is the UK’s largest 2-stage hyper velocity gas gun. It launches projectiles at 6.5 kms per second, 20x the speed of sound First Light’s target technology turns the input into a 70 km/s (250,000 km/h) fuel compression producing pressure 30 times the centre of the Earth The maiden 21-shot fusion campaign is part of First Light’s effort to deliver the conditions required to achieve fusion Amanda Solloway MP, UK Science Minister and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Science, Research and Innovation, will today visit First Light Fusion’s Oxford HQ and officially fire the first ‘shot’ in First Light’s maiden fusion campaign using its newly completed ‘Big Gun’. At 22 metres long and weighing 25,000 kg, the Big Gun is the largest of its kind in the UK. First Light finalised construction of the £1.1 million device in May 2021 and has since successfully completed the testing and commissioning phase. These ‘hyper velocity’ devices are typically used by astrophysicists to simulate meteorite impacts. When fired, the gun will launch a projectile into a vacuum chamber at speeds of over 6.5 km/s, or 20 times the speed of sound. The projectile will impact a fusion target – the centrepiece of First Light’s unique approach to fusion. With the benefit of First Light’s unique amplification technology, the collapsing velocity of the fusion fuel will reach in excess of 70 km/s, or 250,000 kms/hour (over 200 times the speed of sound) producing pressure 30 times the centre of the Earth. The aim is to create the conditions required for fusion. The ‘Big Gun’ complements First Light’s electromagnetic launch device ‘Machine 3’, allowing the team to explore a different parameter space by launching larger but “slower” projectiles. The new gun is housed in a specifically constructed 10mm steel clad facility called ‘The Citadel’. This maiden fusion campaign using the Big Gun will consist of 21 separate shots and is expected to conclude in late July. This campaign is an integral part of First Light’s effort to demonstrate fusion using their unique approach to inertial confinement fusion, which aims to create the extreme temperatures and pressures required for fusion by compressing the fuel inside a target using a projectile travelling at massive speed. First Light’s approach to fusion, which is safe, clean, and virtually limitless, has the potential to transform the world’s energy system. Unlike existing nuclear, there is no long-lived waste, no meltdown risk, and raw materials can be found in abundance. Unlike many other fusion approaches, First Light’s power plant can be realised with existing technology and materials. Dr Nick Hawker, CEO of First Light Fusion, said: “This is a significant scientific milestone for First Light Fusion, as we begin our maiden fusion campaign using our new Big Gun. We are privileged to welcome the UK Science Minister Amanda Solloway MP to officially launch this campaign which will bring us closer to our target of delivering fusion using our unique technology. Our target design, which is the core element of our IP, has advanced significantly over the last 12 months. We are now able to amplify impact speeds by over 11 times in the space of just a few millimetres, breaking our previous records. This is key to creating the extraordinary pressure and temperature necessary for fusion.”

Re FLF, It's worth remembering that if the experiments are a success, then, as is the case with a growing majority of the portfolio, the route to commercialisation would be one of licensing, rather than attempting to 'go it alone'. Many of the recent deals have seen the inclusion of milestone payments, and I would guess that a similar approach would be used here. ================================= I have noticed both at the last AGM webinar and in emails, management have recently become more engaged with retail investors.

p1nkfish. I have no problem including a few real blue sky long shots in the portfolio. You only need one to come off to transform value. But FLF is definitely in that territory. Current best projections for commercial fusion power are 2040s at best. The issue has never been about reactions (controlled fusion reactions have been around for many years). The obstacles are engineering and scale gain(power out in excess of power in). These are being overcome but remain some way off. But a clear step change in a key aspect of development could trigger your bubble. Pierre; I agree with you and am only surprised at the current level of discount now that the Woodford mess is out of the way. I agree with bamboo about a 140p fair value excluding a good Oxford float (in excess of 2.5bn valuation)and without factoring in substantial gains from the likes of Artios. But I recall getting into 3i about 8/9 years ago when it had a silly discount - but selling out too soon, albeit for a healthy gain.

Discount is no surprise to me. NAS has been a stellar performer for the patient for years under one of the best managers on the planet and has been at -30%. First Light could surprise sooner then expected. Narrative matters as does right place right time. Bezos backed fusion co starting work at Culham no surprise and look for reactions 2025. The is near term and interest will build prior - if the tech works. World changing potential.

wba, in my view, the shareprice will correct when nano floats and ipo adds several more tens of millions to both its assets and its cash (i assume it will realise a chunk of cash at that time, and also hold plenty of shares to sell some months or weeks after the float).

First Light Fusion is a blue sky play. It is playing in an arena with a 20 year timetable to commercialisation. If it comes off that is welcome but my horizon is 10 years (given my age). The likes of Oxford Nanopore, Garrison and Featurespace, with material existing revenue in already commercialised space, and Artios with major partnerships with blue chips appeal more to me. What is surprising me is that the share price is currently circa 20% below a conservative fair value (I agree with bamboo2 on this) and more if the Oxford float goes well.

New electrolyser company Hysata launches, putting $2/kg green hydrogen within reach Jun 16, 2021 $5 million seed round led by IP Group Hysata, a company spun out of the University of Wollongong (UOW) to commercialise breakthrough Australian hydrogen electrolyser technology, officially opened its doors today with $5 million in funding led by IP Group, with support from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC). Hysata is developing a new hydrogen electrolyser that has the potential to significantly shift the economics of green hydrogen production, bringing the Australian Government’s $2/kg target within reach. Electrolysers, which use electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, are the key technology for producing green hydrogen. The Hysata electrolyser is based on breakthrough Australian technology developed by a team from the UOW headquartered ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), led by chemical catalysis and characterisation expert Professor Gerry Swiegers. Professor Swiegers has an outstanding track record in commercialisation, as the inventor of over 50 patent families and the founder of six start-ups, which have received an estimated $100 million in investment. The Hysata technology has been proven at lab-scale and the company, which has strong scientific, engineering and commercialisation experience, is now focused on developing and commercialising a full-scale system. Hysata is based at UOW’s Australian Institute for Innovative Materials. Professor Swiegers said: “Inexpensive green hydrogen is needed for decarbonisation of multiple industries to put us on a path to net zero by 2050. Years of work from a great team at the University of Wollongong, along with great facilities and government funding are coming to fruition in a company that has the potential to have global impact. It’s great to be working with IP Group — they have global reach and deep experience commercialising university research.” Paul Barrett, Head of Physical Sciences at IP Group Australia and Hysata Interim CEO said: “Hysata represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to reshape an industry. I’m delighted to be working with Professor Swiegers and the team at the University of Wollongong to bring this technology to market. This will have an impact both economically and environmentally on our path to net zero.” Michael Molinari, IP Group Australia Managing Director said: “We have been looking globally for new technology that can unlock the trillion-dollar opportunity in hydrogen. The Hysata technology is truly world-leading, and we’re very excited to help the team in their mission to make green hydrogen a reality for Australia and the world. This company is a great example of the tremendous economic opportunities that can be unlocked by the research being done at our universities.” ACES Director Professor Gordon Wallace said: “These exciting developments are based on significant fundamental research that is taken from the translational pathway by a team with technical and commercial skills fully integrated. We, at ACES, are fully committed to such ventures.” Professor Jennifer L Martin, UOW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research & Innovation), said: “The innovative technology developed by Professor Swiegers and his team exemplifies our ambition to deliver fundamental research that leads to impactful change. UOW’s research and innovation strategy is focused on creating knowledge for a better world, underpinned by our prioritisation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which include the goals of affordable and clean energy, and climate change mitigation. Green hydrogen is widely acknowledged to be a crucial part of reaching net zero emissions globally, with the potential to meet up to 20% of energy demand in a net zero global economy. Green hydrogen enables deep decarbonisation of hard-to-abate sectors, with potential applications including steel, heavy transport, shipping, aviation, chemicals, seasonal storage in the electricity sector, and gas grids. It also presents an enormous economic opportunity, with global demand of trillions of dollars expected by 2050. Hydrogen and derivatives like ammonia represent a multi-billion-dollar export opportunity for Australia, due to its excellent renewable energy resources, ample land and established status as a leading energy exporter.

wba, yes, the lift in revenue is being driven by increases in orders for the existing tech. Newer products such as the recently announced fully integrated Minion Mk1C, along with its SAAS element and consumables, will further push increases in turnover. The need for Covid variant surveillance using concurrent long and short genetic reads should help keep the co in the forefront of this market. Illumina and Pacbio cannot offer the level of functionality obtained from ONT. Real-time SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic and variants tracking over multiple candidates using nanopore DNA sequencing.

Interesting news at hxxps://bidstats.uk/tenders/?q=whole+genome#752680959-752550307-28. Oxford Nanopore received a new £2m contract from Genomics England (a Dept of Health company)which was announced yesterday and which follows a similar £2m contract announced in March. A search on the site also identified a £3.7m contract for a mobile lab that they won in January plus multiple smaller contracts. These seem like big wins in the context of previous reported revenue numbers and suggest 2021 reported revenue will see a huge increase.
