Always suspected that the "next step" was decades old.

Yes, I remember Toshiba decades ago touting a "home version" of reactor for your house.
About the size of an air conditioning unit IIRC.
Is this it ??

We've been a decade away from fusion for the past 60 years...and I think we are still a decade away...

I am hopeful, but not optimistic, about this design.

Sure would be great if I were wrong on that point!

Talk about saving the world if released-this would do it if it could be built safely.

Can you imagine what this would be worth ?

Can you imagine the number of apple carts this will upset ?

Can you imagine OPEC buying Lockheed - Martian to keep it off the market .

Can you imagine people killing to keep it off the market .

But , for now , I am going to classify it in my head , as pie in the sky .

I'm still giggling about Pons, Fleischmann and Cold Fusion U. I think Dan Rather might have a Joe Newman Energy Machine he will let go cheap.Probably one or two Zeromoters that can be picked up at a bargain too.

Basically free energy.
What's not to like?
If this were to actually come to fruition, electric utilities everywhere would become worthless overnight and most of the petroleum industry would come to a screeching halt.
Something like this would be a quantum leap were it possible.

Well I don't think you're going to have a Mr. Fusion on every car. Very little oil is actually used for electricity generation.

But yeah, change does happen. The coal industry is basically going out of business because gas is so cheap now and all the coal plants are shutting down because they can't compete with gas plants.
