DailyDirt: Fusion Without A Star

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Man-made fusion reactors always seem to be 30-50 years away, even though the sun fuses atoms all the time, mocking us with its immense generation of free fusion energy. Sure, there have been a couple of wunderkinds who've built fusion reactors in their spare time, but the trick is generating a surplus of energy -- not just fusing atoms for fun. Here are a few interesting links on inertial confinement fusion. As always, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
