Is the holy grail of energy finally within reach?

Is the holy grail of energy finally within reach? thumbnail

It’s been around for so long that it’s almost gone out of fashion. Nuclear fusion has been and remains the holy grail of energy research and it’s about to take a giant leap forward. In Provence, the world’s largest and most exciting nuclear fusion research facility is finally taking shape. The cost overruns are almost as astonishing as the engineering itself. At the beginning of the century, it was suggested that Iter, the world’s largest fusion experiment, could be built for around €6bn. By the middle of this decade, when it is fully operational, total costs will be at least 10 times greater than that. Big science has a habit of overrunning its initial budget but Iter is in a league of its own.

As long ago as the 1930s, nuclear fusion was demonstrated in a lab at the University of Cambridge. A team led by Ernest Rutherford achieved the impossible using equipment that would seem tiny and primitive to the modern physicist. Since then, over 100 fusion reactors have been built around the world. Not one of them has produced a single kilowatt of electricity. Neither will Iter. The option to generate electricity has not been engineered into the Iter project. Its purpose is to do something that no previous fusion reactor has ever done: gain.

  1. FUSION-19 is codename for psyop Operation CONVICT-19 on Wed, 1st Jul 2020 9:23 pm 

    MUZZ-19 is anohter codename
    MUHAMMAD-9 is pedifile, the girl was only 9 years old

    thanks supertard for working on this difficult tech to benefit humanity so we can amputate muzzies starting with muzzi imams (500) in china.

    I really hope they succeed before I die. I cant wait for FUSION(tm) for replace the dirty hyrdo-electric power I am using now, with clean(not), unlimited(no), and safe(not really) FUSION utility ……bills.

    It is (fusion) always 10 years away, in 1950 or 2020.
    And probably always will be.

    73% of are electrical hear in misery comes from coal. Thats why our Real Green Adaption program requires us to generate about a tenth of that with lead acid batteries and Chinese made solar panels.

    Thats why were REAL Green. and y’all are not.

    I see the first working fusion reactor blowing up when they hit the ON switch…in the year 2350.

    Yes, it is really me om a rare late afternoon visit to PO.

    It works in he sun or any other star. Why reinvent the wheel? Just install solar panels or wind turbines and suck up all the fusion energy you’ll ever need.

    “Farmers dial back crop plantings as COVID uncertainty rocks markets – USDA”
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usda-crops-acreage/farmers-dial-back-crop-plantings-as-covid-uncertainty-rocks-markets-usda-idUSKBN241362

    “CHICAGO (Reuters) – U.S. farmers planted nearly 5 million fewer acres of corn this spring than estimated by the U.S. government in March, the biggest cut in 37 years, as the coronavirus pandemic roils demand for the crop.The drop in corn seedings, as well as an 11.1% cut in cotton plantings, accounted for the bulk of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s 7.2 million-acre reduction to its estimate of the amount of major crops seeded this spring. Soybean plantings fell below market expectations, with export demand in focus due to uncertainty about purchases from China arising from trade tensions.”

    “Why The US Empire Works So Hard To Control The International Narrative About Russia”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/why-us-empire-works-so-hard-control-international-narrative-about-russia

    “Individual nations have governments with laws that are enforced by those governments. Since we do not have a single unified government for our planet (at least not yet), the interactions between those governments is largely anarchic, and not in a good way. “International law”, in reality, only meaningfully exists to the extent that the international community is collectively willing to enforce it. In practice what this means is that only nations which have no influence over the dominant narratives in the international community are subject to “international law”. This is why you will see leaders in African nations sentenced to prison by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes, but the USA can get away with actually sanctioning ICC personnel if they so much as talk about investigating American war crimes and suffer no consequences for it whatsoever. It is also why Noam Chomsky famously said that if the Nuremberg laws had continued to be applied with fairness and consistency, then every post-war US president would have been hanged.”

    Juan, you are very depressed and I can see how that shapes your world view with anger and resentment. This is a product of a lack of education and an oversize pride. This is a problem with South Americans who generally have a lower IQ than North Americans and tend to be emotional to boot.

    “US Confirms Record 50k Jump In COVID-19 Infections As Total Nears 3 Million”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/us-confirms-record-50k-jump-covid-19-infections-total-nears-3-million-live-updates

    “Appearing on CNBC Thursday morning one day before the long holiday weekend, former FDA commisioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb warned that the outbreak likely won’t finally be over until January – either because we’ve found a vaccine, or because by then, so many people will have been infected that it will naturally mitigate the spread. In a way, Gottlieb’s comments echoed a remark from President Trump made during an interview with Fox Business last night where the president was seemingly throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what might stick, “I think we are going to be very good with the coronavirus…I think that, at some point, that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.”

    Empire dave, you really love your ID theft and pretending to be others a lot. Dont you think you should find something better to do with your time?

    Hey there’s Mobbie again, awakened from the dead. He is not a shadow of his former self, hardly posts anymore.

    Oh, little tip: please let at least 15 minutes pass between your identity theft and your own posts, I mean, even the dumbest might become suspicious of this:

    CONVICT-19

    update death from MUZZ-19 has jumped again, now at 401 million per sec.
    at this rate whitey supertards will be gone very soon, this is horrific

    only solution is extreme bagging to support supremacist muzzie bag day feb12021

    always bag when you’re outside, driving, walking, exercising, in the bathroom

    thank you we’re all in this together

    please love supremacist muzzies more

    MUHAMMAD-9 is pedifile the girl was only 9 years old when he r4ped her aisha

  24. Davy on Thu, 2nd Jul 2020 10:30 am
