America “should begin work immediately” on building fusion reactor

Alternative Energy

The US should begin work immediately on designing and building a pilot fusion reactor, according to a landmark report by a group of scientists, politicians and industry.

The study, produced by the plasma physics division of the American Physical Society, based in Princeton University, argues that America should play a more prominent role in developing fusion power.

Nathan Ferraro (pictured), a researcher at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), and the co-chair of the report, said the US should take “bold steps to make fusion energy a reality, to expand our understanding of plasma physics, and to use that understanding to benefit society”.

The 199-page document, put together over the past year with the help of hundreds of scientists and engineers from many professional societies, makes a number of recommendations, including the construction of a fusion pilot plant that “produces net electricity and thereby establishes the scientific and technological basis for commercial fusion energy”.

At present, the US has been a somewhat unenthusiastic participant in the ITER project to build a demonstration fusion reactor in the south of France.

In 2017, the Trump administration cut America’s contribution to the scheme from a scheduled $105m to $50m.

The report recommends that the US should sustain full membership in ITER.

It is intended to help the US Department of Energy develop a strategy for its Fusion Energy Sciences programme.

The document calls for partnerships with other offices and governmental agencies, as well as with private industry and international partners, to enact the full recommendations of the strategic plan.

“We are encouraged to see that this process brought the community together to recognise the full scope of this challenge, and that coordinated, multidisciplinary research and development is needed to achieve our goals,” Ferraro said.

    Be it 1959 or 2020, Fusion Reactors are 15 tears away.
    Why not just count on the one we have?

    We already have a fusion reactor operating. We have oil in unlimited quantities . Oil on Mars.Bau continue, don’t worry . There is a vaccine against cov 19. There is secret super medicine against death . We are immortal . We are Gods. Good luck everybody

    I completely agree that America should begin work immediately on nuclear fusion reactors. It is quite obvious that there is no other more important priority in the USA. It’s not like we have a CIA Virus Trump Pandemic going on or anything like that. I believe the US government should invest at least US$1 trillion on this project. Americans’ prosperity, health, and lives depend on this. The US government needs to stop spending money on socialist healthcare and social security immediately, and invest that money in nuclear fusion research and development. Our lives depend on it!

    The US cannot even make a virus test kit, F35 jet, or a new aircraft carrier that works. How can they make something no one else has made with over 40 years of trying and billions of $$$, with dumbed down, incompetent engineers and scientists? Don’t make me laugh!

    Hell! Take a good look at what/who is running Amerika these days, an arrogant casino owner with no education who will be running against a senile, female molester who cannot even remember where he is. America is a sick joke! LMAO!

  6. JuanP on Sat, 21st Mar 2020 5:52 pm 

    Breaking News! The USA has become the country with the second largest number of active cases and new cases of CIA Virus after Italy, in spite of insufficient and inadequate testing. The CIA Virus Trump Pandemic is very likely to ravage the US healthcare, political, economic, and financial systems in the coming weeks. What goes around comes around, bitches!

    “The US should begin work immediately on designing and building a pilot fusion reactor”

    No one can tell Trump what to do. Even Intelligence was ignored in Jan. of the impending pandemic, so how anyone could convince Trump of building a pilot fusion reactor is mystery that no one can solve.

    Exactly amerika! What are you waiting for. The nation that can barely do nuclear FISSION right, should defiantly drop whatever it is doing and start building nuclear FUSION stations.

    And dont forget Fusion is…..

    Clean*
    Safe*
    Unlimited*

    *[Disclaimer] Nuclear fusion may, or may not, be any of these things. TBH though, it wouldn’t even be one of them.

    Amerika is so good at building nuclear FISSION stations, that its ‘newest’ station, the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant in Tennessee began construction in 1973. Its 2nd reactor, went on-line in 2016! The 1st, in 1996, Good job. Amerikas newest reactor final cost, exceeded 12 Billion dollars and mostly consists of 1970s era technology.

    Now, consider a commercial FUSION station, if the plans even existed to build one, which they dont, would be a least 5-10 times more complex than a ‘typical’ fission plant. Do the math on both build times, AND cost. Figure a final cost of 5-10 times Watts Bar. As for build time? Who the hell knows. Can always use ITERs test reactor build time to get some idea. That thing has been in works for decades and hasnt produced one micro-gram of plasma.

    Remember, amerika KNOWs how to build nuclear power stations, LoL. It has no idea or notion, nor in fairness does anyone else, of how to actually construct a working FUSION station or what it would entail.

    No worries, Russia and Iran have sufficient oil and gas for the US since demand has plummeted globally anyway.

    All it takes for America is to tone down a little.

    “With oil prices falling amid the COVID-19 recession, it’s the beginning of the end for fracking”

    Fracking can come back quickly but surely not at the scale it was. A statement like the above is from people who do not understand the oil products market in a global oil complex. Salon is an anti-oil site. It is the begging of the end for conventional oil and gas and renewables albeit probably a slow process.
