Electricity generation powered by nuclear fusion comes a step closer to reality.From BBC News: click here
While one can't deny that it is progress, if it's a step it's a pretty hesitant one.Though I'm no scientist I would not say a major hurdle had been swept away, rather that the way forward is a little clearer
"I can't overstate how dramatic a step that is," he told BBC News. "Many people a year ago were saying the project would be dead by now."Along the way, the experiments smashed the record for the highest energy from a laser - by a factor of 20.Seem pretty big steps to me.
Does this mean we can halt the expansion of those costly wind farms that only operate when the wind is blowing?
Given the problems faced producing a field to contain the plasma any step forward is likely to be small and, until fully validated, treated with some trepidation. This looks a reasonable jump in knowledge and ability which may bring truly clean power a bit nearer.
Hopefully their experiments will come to fruition quicker than the UK efforts See Here:click here
shellshipIf they built a windfarm inside the House of Commons there would be enough wind and hot air to power the whole coumtry.

I think it is fair to say that those early experiments paved the way for the research happening now.
