U.S. zero-carbon fusion energy startup Helion raises $500 mln

U.S. zero-carbon fusion energy startup Helion raises $500 mln thumbnail

Helion Energy, a fusion energy tech startup, on Friday said it raised $500 million to build a net positive electrical generator, one that creates more power than it uses.

The latest round values the company at $3 billion. Helion said $1.7 billion in follow on investments were committed if it can prove its technology works, which would be a major step toward making fusion technology a practical solution for generating power while emitting no carbon.

Fusion is the process that fires the sun as the nuclei of two atoms fuse under extreme heat. It creates enormous amounts of energy.

Helion’s newest prototype named Polaris will add a so-called regenerative energy technology to its fusion technology already developed to generate electricity, said Helion founder and CEO David Kirtley. The target date for demonstration is 2024.

The company broke ground in Everett, Washington in July to build the generator which will be the size of two shipping containers and create enough electricity to power 40,000 homes, said Kirtley. If it works, the $1.7 billion follow-on investments will be used to develop a commercial system, he said.

“There’s a real future for fusion to be part of this climate change and clean energy discussion,” said Kirtley, adding that other fusion energy companies were also pushing the timeline forward. He said there were over 40 private fusion companies today.

Fusion has advantages over fission as the fuel is derived from water, not radioactive uranium or plutonium and doesn’t generate long-term radioactive waste.

Sam Altman, a well-known investor and artificial intelligence researcher in Silicon Valley who led the round, said the long-term goal of Helion is not just to create clean energy but electricity that costs just one cent a kilowatt hour.

“I hope we have the best idea, but what I really care about is that someone gets fusion built and globally deployed as quickly as possible,” said Altman.

    “U.S. zero-carbon fusion energy startup Helion raises $500 mln”

    Just proves that there are still a lot of suckers out there buying unicorn paper.

    But we know that. How? They are also lining up for their 3rd dose of the GMO-JAB.

    World population less than 6 billion by 2030? And, mostly those in the 1st world gone.

    We shall see. Pass the popcorn.

    Electricity too cheap to meter. And it’s only ten years away. Still…

  3. Biden’s hairplug on Sun, 7th Nov 2021 11:22 pm 

    The usual short-sighted jokes about fusion, ignoring the considerable progress that has been made in recent years. I think that in the doming years they might very well be able to generate net energy. The real question is: against what price?

    And yes, leave it to poofter heebs like Samuel Altman to generate the impressive amounts of cash to fund these kinds of hobbies.

  4. makati1 on Sun, 7th Nov 2021 11:44 pm 

    What progress”? if you mean the many billion$ $pent and still nothing usable after…oh…90 plus years, not to mention employing a lot of useless “engineers”…well, your dictionary must have a woke definition of “progress”.

    It will NEVER scale up to practicality*. Never!

    *practicality: the quality of being adapted or designed for actual use; usefulness or convenience: interest in or inclination toward actual work or activity as opposed to theories or ideas: the constraints or demands of real life or actual implementation. (Note the word “actual”.)

    Progress:

    – reaching ever higher temperatures
    – ever longer duration of keeping a fusion reaction going

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KEwkWjADEA

    In the US, Germany and China. And then there is the largest of them all, ITER in France.

    Nothing has been decided yet. But it is unlikely it will be commercial before 2050, if ever.

    If I am able to have my realty to manifest on earth, it could mean that I have been given a big amount electro-magnetic that I can use to manifest my reality not theirs. I have access to more electro-magnetic energy than the regular human and the piece of shit animal.

    If I have access to more electro-magnetic energy then average people, it means my reality of executing none human with cancer has a greater chance of happening.

    They (the animals among us) have been hiding under an holographic cost forever. They, the animal know the truth but never share anything. If you hide under an holographic coat you are guilty and will sentenced to death be cancer.

    They are basically using human and animal consciousness electro-magnetic energy generated by our thought to build a reality for them, while not telling us what human are really about. This is a crime against humanity. They would have contiue on the same if it was not for Father and GOD’s intervention.

    I am working on my car, one neighbor open its door look at me and closed the door. Annoying being surround by them. There is not probably that much real human with a soul. I would not be surprised that the number of human with a soul is as low as 50 millions.

    Well apparently, Father others GOD’s and I have enough of them and their lack of morality. Cannot build something with people like that. They always have this look of hopeless on their face, like they are always looking for savior instead of helping them self.

  16. OnlyHumanWithASoulMatterToMe on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 11:34 am 

    If I would be made a real powerful GOD,
    My goal would be to build something for human with a soul only. At anytime these animals are not part of my future projects.

  17. YouNeedToDie on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 11:43 am 

    No we don’t need to talk, you need to die. Time is up for you. We are a lot of GOD who think that, you is your time to die,

  18. YouMustDieToCreateABetterFutur on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 11:48 am 

    These animal are really soulless. This is why I insist we give them a animal face, an animal body and they should also walk like animal, not like human. They have been making my life miserable since I am born.

  19. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 12:54 pm 

    I think I know why they had to enslave humans with a soul. I spoke with these animals. They are empty vessels. They have no imagination so they cannot generate thoughts. If you don’t generate thoughts , you cannot generate electromagnetic energy and you cannot generate a reality. So they decided to enslave humans with a soul and an high IQ so they could create a reality for them. See below for more details.

    They are highly narcissist with a big ego. They can only generate thoughts abut themselves. So they cannot build a civilization because they have no imagination. They always going to be parasites.

    Maybe if I see my self as an energy light being my own thoughts will make it happen. Just a guess.

    I don’t know how I got so deeply involved into this

  21. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 1:18 pm 

    This is who they are. no imagination and everything is about them. Women need a redesign they are too narcissistic and will make impossible the creation of new reality. There is only female energy in the system and not enough masculine energy to counter balance the whole energy field.

  22. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 1:26 pm 

    This good shit the voice said to me. I have no idea where I get all this inspiration.

    There a big silence in my head. It started a week a go. Feel like there has been big change in the energy field.

  23. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 1:42 pm 

    This is unfixable. This whole creation need to be destroyed, or if you want everyone need to be killed. You give to high IQ humans with a soul a new body made of energy and light, or if you want, you make them GOD and scrap everything. There is simply too much women in the system.

    We agree the voice said.

  24. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 1:54 pm 

    There is too much women worshipping. Look at how many women the CAQ or piece of shit Legaut political party has. Too much women and feimine man.

    https://coalitionavenirquebec.org/fr/votre-equipe/

    https://coalitionavenirquebec.org/fr/caucus-et-cen/

    Sarah a women is the present of piece of shit Legault political party. Tell you everything about the man, well he is not really a man, more a women. I really dislike LegaultS.

    On comprend, la voix dans me tête vient de dire

  25. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 2:04 pm 

    The voice said, you could not have done better. Yes, you could be right, but I am not seeking position of power. I am just waiting to die and minimized the pain cause by my shit human body.

    My suggestion is to fast track the ascension of man (man only not women) of high IQ with soul into an energy being and destroy everything. Bring back home the high quality man and build something else.

  26. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 2:06 pm 

    It is probably not the first time GOD destory everything, and restart from scratch.

  27. ReallyQuietInMyHead on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 4:44 pm 

    It is so quiet in my head. It is like there is no life in the energy field. No thoughts no actions. Cannot find the right words to describe. Once in a while you heard a car.

  28. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 6:13 pm 

    I see so much better now. Colours are vivid. I wont need to wear my strongest glasses. I used to wear glasses with a correction of 4 for myopia. Now I wear glasses full time with a corrective factor of 2.5 instead 4. Both eyes are painful now and the portion of the brain on top of my eyes also painful.. So happy about this improvement.

    If you want to be able to see the energy field you need a good vision.

  29. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 6:25 pm 

    My eyes are watery. It feel like someone is doing eye surgery on me.

  30. GoodOne on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 7:43 pm 

    This is good. Head movement really bring the animal side of hers. Imagine that with black empty eyes.

  31. ThisMakesMuchMoreSense on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:10 pm 

    There is no holographic coat. I just was thinking about that. These empty vessels are just capable of generating thoughts about them-selves because in their own mind there is nothing else than them-selves.

    All the electromagnetic energy they create is directed back at them. When they see, the reality changed around them, they get scared, they wonder how could they adapt. They can only adapt by generating thoughts about themselves. So they generated thoughts of themselves transforming into something else and radiate this energy outward toward us. This is what we human with a soul see. They probably have a basic physical form but they don’t believe their basic physical form is real.

    The can only speak about themselves and nothing else.

    The voice said Thank You. No problem dude

  33. WeCannotWorkWithThem on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:18 pm

    Listen what she said, style is about how I dress. She redirect her thoughts toward her.

    A normal person would say, style depend on the type of fabric, the fabric cut and garment adjustment.

    You simply8 cannot move forward with people like that. This is why they need human with a soul to create a reality with electricity, potable water. Human with a soul create things and direct energy outward instead of directing energy inward.

  34. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:20 pm 

    That are basically a new born baby that never pass the new born baby evolution state to become adult. They are basically design failure.

  35. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:28 pm 

    A guess that would make all women a failed design. Women need to be redesign them if we want to move forward.

  36. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:32 pm 

    These animals could be from a previous design by GOD. He abandoned this design for a man with a soul without upgrading women. He was probably thinking that man would kept women in check.

    They are not human, they really are a different species that somehow was able to survive.

  37. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 9:39 pm 

    Women are really an inferior design, A well balanced masculine man with moral values is really GOD best achievement.

  38. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 10:04 pm 

    This is why the animal specie is getting smaller and sicker. The have been created before and have accumulated more genetic defects. Man can afterward and has less genetic defects accumulated.

    I guess if GOD can fix my eyes sight, he can give them cancer. That would be a fast way to exterminate them.

  39. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 10:08 pm 

    I guess we can wear them out by using the fact the the animal specie redirect its electro-magnetic energy inward.

  40. SomeOfMyMusing on Tue, 9th Nov 2021 10:25 pm 

    If I was GOD, I would be looking for man with high IQ that are masculine and fast track their ascension into the energy field. I would accelerate the conversion of the man from a human body to a body of light and energy. When done I would destroy this creation. This is unworkable as it is. Plus the human body suck ass. Nothing is more humiliating than taking a shit if you ask me. Better to be a body of light and energy where you don’t have to eat, shit and you suffer no pain. This is a failed design if you ask me.

  41. peakyeast on Wed, 24th Nov 2021 3:54 am 

    They are already declaring success. And still their EROEI is undulating around 0-1 which to my knowledge is quite a bit below 20+ where it should be at the very minimum. And then we haven’t even counted in the sunk cost and future maintenance..
