Interesting talk, it would be nice to get hold of the paper. BTW, I do remember some vacuum tube physics as part of my physics courses some forty years ago, but just vaguely. There also used to be a few vacuum tube and resonator specialists scattered around the country that my dad used on occasion (radar), but they were old and I suspect many are now retired. So that part of the talk is certainly true.
Check, google for "farnsworth fusor" and you'll get lots more. It's not commonly known that benchtop fusion was being done in the 50's, and is availoable as a commercial neutron source right now. You can even do it as a science fair project.What Bob Bussard is talking about it a little bit fancier, or course, but Bob's not just your everyday crackpot.
