Re: Monumental

NO ONE has claimed that there is currently a viable commercial design for a fusion reactor. There are many promising research prototypes producing concrete results, and with any luck one or more of them will lead to feasible commercial designs in the next few decades. That is all anyone has claimed...

I read and didn't see where a workable unit was developed. Some units are producing enough heat but they are still not a working unit that has run the full process. The paragraph on top of all those examples sums it up pretty much: A long-standing quip about fusion points out that, since the 1970s, ...
