EU Approves Energy Positive Fusion Pilot Project


The European Union has approved a UK proposal for a  £500 M  experimental fusion reactor.  The project will be one of the levitra price in canada new-fangled HiPER reactors, which uses a focused Petawatt laser to initiate a fusion reaction within a small pellet of fuel.

Fusion fuel, for those who don't know, is just deuterium, which can be made cheaply from sea water, and the only waste product is helium, which is inert and, frankly, in demand for industrial use. The plant is building on successes at an American military project that is expected to produce more energy than it consumes within the visit our site generic levitra online pharmacy next five years.

That will be a first for fusion power, and possibly a first step toward a world of plentiful, pollution-free power. The British plant will use a less expensive method for generating power in roughly the same way. Experts are saying that, if this pans out, commercial scale fusion plants could be going online within 20 years and look here super cialis producing the majority of tramadol 100mg fedex delivery the world's energy in less than 50.

As always, fusion promises a great deal. I can't help but feel that it's worth every penny we throw at it, but I'm not placing any bets on a fusion-powered future just yet.

A Better Way
written by M. Simon, September 04, 2007
The EU is wrong about laser fusion. It is very difficult. Alignments must be very, very, very, very, precise. i.e, like ITER it will always be 30 years away.

Here is a better bet:




Bussard Fusion Reactor
Easy Low Cost No Radiation Fusion

It has been funded:

Bussard Reactor Funded

I have inside info that is very reliable and multiply confirmed that validates the above story. I am not at liberty to price cialis say more. Expect a public announcement from the Navy in the coming weeks.

The above reactor can burn Deuterium which is very abundant and produces lots of neutrons or it can burn a mixture of Hydrogen and Boron 11 which does not

The implication of it is that we will know in 6 to 9 months if the small reactors of that design are feasible.

If they are we could have fusion plants generating electricity in 10 years or less depending on how much we want to spend to compress the time frame. A much better investment that CO2 sequestration.

BTW Bussard is look here canada cialis generic not the only thing going on best price for tramadol in IEC. There are a few government programs at the University of Wisconsin and at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana among others.

Reads just like a stock scam.

I'm intrigued to find out more about this. Can anyone point me in the right direction, please...

It is true
written by Darius, September 04, 2007
The project was canceled by the Navy do to budget cuts but the word is out that it will be founded again which if true is a very good news. This is a Polywell Fusion Reactor in a very interesting ground breaking design.

Dr. Bussard
written by Darius, September 04, 2007
In the early 1970s Dr. Bussard became Assistant Director under Director Robert Hirsch at the Controlled Thermonuclear Reaction Division of what was then known as the the best place indian cialis generic Atomic Energy Commission. They founded the mainline fusion program for the United States: the Tokamak. Later, in June 1995, Bussard claimed in a letter to all fusion laboratories as well as to key members of buy levitra on line with mastercard US Congress, that he, along with the other founders of the program, supported the Tokamak not out of conviction that it was the best technical approach but rather as a vehicle for generating political support, thereby allowing them to africa-info.org pursue "all the hopeful new things the cialis online switzerland mainline labs would not try".

Fusion gets that much more difficult if you only use deuterium. Difficult enough that they had trouble doing so for weapons, let alone reactors.

Most designs that I've seen also burn a particular isotope of lithium, which is converted to tritium when it absorbs neutrons from a deuterium-tritium reaction.

I hope that the Bussard reactor works, but personally I'm working in laser-driven fusion, and I agree it's quite difficult.
