That is nuts!!! i mean how much money does it cost to fund these projects!
I like this sentence:
This is the same fusion energy process that makes stars shine and provides the life-giving energy of the sun!

i mean they could create a black hole or even a new sun! i mean are they actually makin this as hot as the sun because that could cause the particles to burn all its surroundings and that will start burnin more and that will start burnin more particles and more and more etc... until the whole planet is burned into a big blob and we have a new sun! (must lay off the hard stuff)!

its just i think there is certain things in life that have never been explored before, that might have extreme consiquences and who are these people to decide our fate! we all walk on this planet and most have children who walk on this planet too!!



I take it you disagreed with the LHC too?

Yes it could kill us all, but not at the scale that that they are talking about. Things like this need to be tried, they did not know if the first H-Bomb would use up all the oxygen, they still let it go off. Unless we try something that is dangerous technology will not go forward.

FYI: I believe that nuclear is the way to go, fission for now but fusion reactors are going to be developed or we are all going to become green, glowing, three-eyed creatures

Look at this from a different perspective,
imagine a new fuel source becomes available, no pollutants, totally renewable etc..

Global economic implications? ( No need to drill for oil, gas. )

Who would own the technology? ( The Goverment? Taxes etc.. )


Another one to ponder...

You found the key to creating a new renewable unlimited energy supply,
What would you do with it?

hummm... fantasy mode :P

Global economics is something that is very fragile, look at what happened when one bank collapsed. This technology will not put the Oil and gas companies out of business for many years, and they will want it to fail. They are only making money because have become so reliant on what they supply so if Fusion does take off we will have something that will take years to replace everything else. I would say that it will be implemented in the power stations before any where else may be also in the large nuclear powered ships as well. Although there are many different ways of implementing this technology. Imagine having a mini fusion box at the end of your street creating 100MW or more for essentially free. This is not really something that you can say exactly what is going to happen. For all we know fusion may never work, but the crazy scientist in me really wants it to be possible.

Who would own it?

This is the unknown, the companies that pioneered it will claim it, but Governments will want to exploit it. I guess it will end up being the person with the biggest gun that will ultimately end up "owning it".

I understand the build time,
im a construction manager for National Grid.

As an example we are looking at start to finish 4 years just for a supergrid transformer installation.

The whole grid is having to upgrade to 400Kv in a relatively short space of time.

Would it not be nice to have a small fusion reactor outside every persons home instead? :P

Just a shame it is actually a nuclear weapon research facility dressed up in eco clothes =P

Because obviously plutonium fuses with an net output of energy [/sarcasm] and not that the conditions are almost identical to an exploding nuclear bomb, but one that they can observe...

I prefer JET =P

^They aren't using Plutonium...^

Anyway, hydrogen bombs don't need any more testing, we know they work rather well. A laser that can light a ball of pure hydrogen isn't much use as a weapon either. How would you deliver a ball of pure hydrogen and a mega kajjillion watt laser system onto a target?

I'm still holding out for a Mr Fusion

Actually they are using plutonium pellets, as well as the D-T gas/ice capsule tyvm!

Mmm, tasty long physics papers =P
