Summary:  Dr. Klein tells his story.  In the late nineties, he went to the University of Texas at Austin for a masters in plasma physics.  After finishing, he was working as a tech when he wrote a letter to Dr. Robert Bussard regarding the polywell.  Bussard offered Alex a job on the stop.  For 2 years, he worked at EMC2 on the polywell in San Diego.  After leaving the company, Alex entered a PhD program at Columbia which he finished a few years.  Dr. Klein moved on to a post-doc at MIT working on the Joint European Torus.  At this point, Dr. Klein, started FPGeneration, which raised 3 million dollars in venture capital to test out a fusion concept.  In 2011, FPGeneration ran into a plasma instability associated with the Child-Langmuir limit.  We cover the whole experience and talk about the physics.
