An interesting development...

MIT have announced an invention which might just bring the technology of nuclear fusion closer to the realms of possibility.

One lives in hope that this will be so; because if this world needs one thing, it needs a cheap and clean source of power. Petawatts (1000 Terawatts, 1,000,000 Gigawatts) of the stuff. Fusion has that potential. Whether this new approach will pay dividends after 50 years of investigation, I have no idea. However, it is trying a counter intuitive approach to Fusion which could see some sort of breakthrough, or if not, some further clue to where the real answer to cracking safe Nuclear Fusion might lie. Other projects like the LDP are showing promise. It's only a question of time.

I'm not holding my breath, just watching interestedly.
