The Promise of Fusion: Energy Miracle or Mirage?
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 22:58:57 GMT by vlad

General The U.S. has invested billions of dollars trying to create a controlled form of nuclear fusion that could be the energy source for an endless supply of electricity. The world’s largest and highest-energy laser focuses the intense energy of 192 separate laser beams into an even more intense single beam aimed at a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel, with the goal of creating a tiny star by replicating the process that powers the sun and similar celestial bodies. This controlled form of fusion theoretically could tap into the boundless energy that binds the universe together, creating intense heat and driving huge generators that could supply enough power to run the entire world’s electricity grid in perpetuity.


Controlled fusion would produce no greenhouse gases, would not require hazardous nuclear fuel, would produce shorter-lived and less hazardous waste than nuclear reactors, and would pose no danger of a runaway reaction, because fusion reactions are hard to start and quickly halt after running out of fuel.

Sound too good to be true? Well, so far it has been.

Inertial Confinement Fusion shares another characteristic with mirages. Mirages only seem to be a little farther down the way but when you get there it's moved just as far away as when we started.
Having observed this business since my youth, all that was heard was that IC Fusion is only twenty years away. It always will be.
By now it should be apparent that IC Fusion will never work or be practical if it could work. 
It's time to spend that money where it will work, on solar, geothermal, mass-thermal energy storage  and more proven means of energy production.
The only reason that this has gone on for so long is that IC Fusion has some military application.
 So let the military have its fun without confusing everyone that IC Fusion can actually work.
