  1. Absolutely huge news if true

     

    "Most estimates" do not, apparently, include research being done at Lockheed Martin's secretive advanced development center, Skunk Works. At Google's Solve For X, Charles Chase describes what his team has been working on: a trailer-sized fusion power plant that turns cheap and plentiful hydrogen (deuterium and tritium) into helium plus enough energy to power a small city. It's safe, it's clean, and Lockheed is promising an operational unit by 2017 with assembly line production to follow, enabling everything from unlimited fresh water to engines that take spacecraft to Mars in one month instead of six.

  7. To hell with Mars in one month. We could go to Thailand for a quickie.

  8. power too cheap too meter...but we'll meter it anyway.

    yeah, one of those incredible leaps forward if real, sounds awesome on many levels.

    LOL - was going to post a link to this in the stocks thread - if there was ever a reason to buy shares in something with real potential, this would be it

  13. If I remember from my Chemistry classes correctly the by product of fusion is H2O. This is great news if it pans out.

  14. Not going to happen, assassinated before it happens you watch, yea i watch to much anime...

    I'm pretty sure that the byproduct of fusion is helium and that you're thinking of something else to do with hydrogen (and I think I even remember the exact experiment/process you're talking about, but can't think of what its called to save my life).

    I might send you a PM every single day for a year when it hits $4000 just to remind you I was right.

  17. Computers + Graphene + Fusion = Electronics ubiquitous everywhere in life. If this is true, 2050 will be completely different from today.

    I won't hold my breath because I'm quite fond of living.

  20. You're right LS, Helium and a neutron are the products, maybe I'm thinking that water is the waste of a fusion reaction? Either way, thanks for posting this is exciting news and hopefully other companies are on the same path as Lockheed.

  24. Ya well, they've had wireless power ready to go for a while now....Im sure they have wireless fusion in the works..then we'll have fusion wireless bufferless HDz, then it'll probably move towards the hyper fusion/particle realm..
    so waht?
    I keep telling eveyrone WE are the intelligent aliens everyone wonders about..We just have'nt made it to that point in time yet so we obviously cant come back to be US in the past and appear as super intelligent species from outer space..

    We'll have magnetic drive eveything...fusion power is nice untill habib al hasam decides to turn our country into a large smoking hole...

    I not 100% sure but the byproduct of fusion depends on what's fused so h20 can be a byproduct.

    As far fusion power yes there are many more companies that are working on it. Look up focus fusion

    no. water cannot be the byproduct of nuclear fusion.
