In Topic: Germany fires up W7-X fusion reactor

As far as how fusion is progressing, it's basically down to an engineering problem.  IIRC it was less than 10 years ago that controlled experiments showed fusion reactions that could produce more energy than they consumed.  

From that point it's a matter of working through the issues of how you do it continuously on a large enough scale.  That's the point of this reactor and the ITER that's currently under construction.  

Work through those issues and it's on to commercial production

very interesting.... Germany has spent $1 billion so far on a nuclear fusion experiment to generate clean energy.  

US jobs in renewable energy companies have just surpassed fossil fuel employment in oil, gas and coal.

The difference between fusion and all the other Posted Image we've wasted money on is that it can actually provide base-load power and exist without fossils on hot backup.  I think I've said here before that I expect fusion to be commercially viable within 20 years and common before I'm dead.

With all the heat it generates, it also offers some other interesting possibilties.  You can conduct thermolysis of water to produce hydrogen, which gives you a viable source of the stuff for fuel cells and the like, or you can use it with a little more heat, CO2 captured from the air and a catalyst to produce liquid fuels.  Imagine if your car still burned gasoline but was 100% "carbon neutral."

Bought my 10mm today.  Was going to go with a G20 or G40, then I walked into my LGS and they had a used Kimber Stainless Target II, mint, with a slick trigger job done with wilson combat components for $925 out the door.

I swear I blacked out and when I woke up, my wallet was $300 lighter and I had a pistol on lay-a-way.

Put it this way, unlimited with the possibility of throttling was better than paying through the nose for 30gb of Verizon.  At least now I can watch Netflix without having to watch my data.

HHell there were a couple months where my 2yo figured out how to turn the ipad wifi on and stream movies on Prime.  Yeah $500 cell phone bill here we go....
