Future Fusion

I have been hearing about the promise of nuclear fusion all my life, but it still remains a dream. Thats why I’m a supporter of the much more practical nuclear fission as a replacement for fossil fuels.

However at least one form of nuclear fusion may provide commercial electricity in our lifetime and open up the solar system as well. The Polywell Fusion Reactor was invented by the late Dr Robert Bussard and shows some promise. M Simon gives the current status here.

The project has received shoestring funding but there’s enough money to go to the next stage. Hopefully in a couple of years time we will know if it really does work .

The video below describes the reactor.
