Hope and Hot Fusion

Hope springs eternal, and it would have to.

Sitting on a (hopefully) controlled hydrogen bomb does not sound like the best place to be. Agree with you sentiments entirely.

LENR fans will believe this when they see it. They have been promising things like this for seventy years at the cost of many billions. I would not fancy boiling an egg with this contraption. LENR does the trick at a minute fraction of the cost of this thing, and also the cost of fossil fuel reactors. So AIAS Fellow Steve Bannister of the University of Utah is quite right, LENR will lead to a new industrial revolution, one that is needed pretty damn quick.

High-beta fusion reactor
Developed by Lockheed Martin
Nuclear fusion—the production of energy from the fusion of hydrogen nuclei—has always been the holy grail of energy: it’s endlessly productive and largely clean—and so far, it’s remained elusive. But in October, Lockheed Martin said it had achieved a technological breakthrough that will enable it to make compact fusion reactors small enough to fit on the back of a truck within a decade. The design uses “magnetic mirror confinement” to control the reaction. Absent further details on how it works, some outside scientists are skeptical. But if Lockheed really can produce a workable fusion reactor, the world of energy may never be the same.
