I will not say much anymore, nobody likes to hear that fusion might work. The fusion that won't work is close to crossing the break-even point by the summer (High yield shots). The say they have a system for "fast fusion" that is made to strike after the already successful compression method to heat the target faster. Of course none of this will work, I am at the lab and crazy with the rest of them. I happen to be one of the technicians that takes samples from the imaginary fusion to see how much converted to Helium. Of course I never see anything like neutron activation, it is in my head. Their plans to make a power generation system the size of a railroad car that can power a small city is also imaginary. I do agree with the previous post, I would rather have an imaginary fusion power generation next to me compared to a CO2 belching coal plant. I ride my bike to and from work. Fusion produces no green house gases that will slowly kill us all. But since fusion is imaginary, and the plant they are building in France that copies us shows how foolish the French investors are. And the ability to test nuclear weapons without blowing them up is also imaginary. How did we ever talk most all the Senators from both parties to build this?
There is nothing in France of which you speak that copies the NIF, in Europe there are feasibility studies being funded;In October 2008, Hiper received approximately 13m euros of funding to carry out a feasibility study. It also has access to European hardware and capability worth a further 50m euros.If all goes well, engineers will begin to build the Hiper facility towards the end of the next decade, bringing the vision of a commercial fusion reactor one step closer to reality. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7972865.stmIn France they are building ITER, which is a magnetic, not laser, containment scheme;http://www.iter.org/
Completed a high yield shot and working towards even higher shots at the NIF. Solving the confinement problems in spite of what Harvard University said would make fusion impossible. It is just a matter of time.
I said this in 2009, Man I can see Content1 In 2059, 50 years from now, Telling Content 3 his Grandson that in 50 years the Fusion problem will be solved. So Content 3 hold down the fort until 2109 for Content 5. Solar, Wind and fusion seem to be in the same useless pile.As I said before I believe Anti-Matter problem will be solved before the fusion problem.Just the humble opinion of a Certified Health Physicist part 1, NRRPT.
Well there is a us for the NRRPT certification, that is, to talk about subject not in you specialty. How many fusion questions were on the NRRPT? I best just as many as there was for anti-matter. I had the honor to log in the results of a 450,000,000,000,000 neutron shot that came from the fusion of tritium and deuterium, not fissile material needed here. Let me see, I got a teaching credential, does that make my opinion better? It won't be 50 years, it will more be like this summer where we are producing high yields. It is taking a while to insure the methods are 99.99% reproducible, not like that cold fusion farce of years ago. If you really thought we couldn't do it, you would be clamoring to your representative in Congress and the DOE. It is precisely that it is working is why the research continues.

Plus we could build starships! Antimatter ftw!
