    That was so cool (or hotter than you might expect when combining hydrogen atoms to make helium). A shorter version can be found on the Al Jazeera newsfeed. A darn good explanation too…

    Since this is such a huge win for world-kind, you can bet that the Murdoch Evil Empire will spare no expense to try to tear it down.

    Big deal. I remember Mr. Fusion, from back in 1985.

    I was sorry to hear the guy go from the science straight to “credibility of our nuclear deterrent” and “world-leading expertise in weapons-relevant technology.”

      Mike B –

      That was a sour note, though I appreciate he kept saying it in reference to deterrence; that said, I know that it just makes for an arms race.

        He talked like energy production was a barely mentionable side effect. Weird. Almost like he was hoping to distract the war-makers of the world. Like [Putin] – “dude, this takes a long time to get right without blowing stuff up, and even then you might accidentally produce useful energy. Tough luck for you oil income!”
        [other names possible, such as Bush (any Bush), Halliburton, British Petroleum, Chevron… etc.]
