"A laser at the national ignition facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California will soon be used to produce nuclear fusion in a process that could deliver vast amounts of clean, reliable energy in a process fuelled by nothing more than water and the hydrogen that it contains, explained Dr Edward Moses of Livermore... ...He described four technological steps required to make a laser powerful enough to produce nuclear fusion, saying that two of the four were already achieved. The third, getting a form of hydrogen called tritium into the beam, would take place this year and the fourth, actually fusing hydrogen into helium, would happen in 2011 or 2012. At this stage the system would be able to deliver 20 times more energy than the laser actually uses, what he called “scientific break-even”. He predicted the financial break-even would come in 10 to 12 years when the first laser-powered fusion electricity plant was built."
Unlike various to be unnamed financial black hole companies this looks like it could be the real thing. Something that would revolutionary change the world.
