The start configuration of the GOL-NB open trap started the first plasma campaign in the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics. The trap is a low-cost scaled-down supporting experiment that should improve the knowledge base required for the next step fusion-grade GDMT project. It combines physics and technology from two different branches of open traps with a central section for gas-dynamic plasma confinement and two attached multiple-mirror solenoids that decrease particle and energy losses along the magnetic field. Success of the GOL-NB program will support the existing vision of a linear fusion reactor.
