Fusion Plants

Six years ago, General Fusion announced that they're working on  a fusion reactor.

The general consensus from Susan's colleagues at Imperial College was that this General Fusion doing some hand-waving to stimulate their stock prices. Colour us cynical.

Then there was Los Alamos National Lab 2016 announcement. With a promise of a first working model in five years or so (2021ish), and not only that but it would fit in a shipping container too! Again, we discussed how they might have found a trick that would allow them to deliver on their announcement.

Either way, the reaction in the Parker-Pollard household was wouldn't that be nice, if it comes true. Wishing for a better future for all mankind.
