World powers combine on joint fusion project

Postby DarkUFO on Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:43 am

Several of the world's leading powers are combining forces to finance a joint nuclear fusion project.

For years nuclear fusion has hinted at a future powered by unlimited, clean energy but to date has remained outside our grasp.

It is one of mankind’s most daring experiments – a quest to produce virtually limitless clean energy that, if successful, would revolutionise life on Earth by harnessing the explosive power of the sun.

The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (Iter), has been consuming far greater quantities than predicted of its most-needed fuel: cash.


No surprise this is underfunded. The gas/oil conglomerates would hate to see this become reality. Yet another thing I hope to see come into fruition in my lifetime. Thanks Dark! :) (you always have the most interesting stories for us to read)
