    We probably could eventually make our way to fusion energy by starting g out with thorium powered reactors.

    Three years ago commercial fusion power generation was at least 25 years away. Today I'd say its at least 250 years away.

    batteries are terribly inefficient at storing energy, i don't see solar/wind getting becoming dominant until that is somehow overcome

    Wait if we take the waste products from nuclear fission and toss it into a fusion reactor then take the unusable elements and chuck it back into the fission reactor. Wouldn’t we have basically a self sustaining source of energy?

    10 billion dollars for new type of energy worth every pence . More money is spend on sweets and chocolate . People still think 10 billion dollars is alot money😂. Its nothing 😂 We spend more money on ice cream a month . Its sounds like this tech would make millions of new jobs too and pass a moon base , space travel , cities at sea 🤔 i dont get why people think 10 billion dollars is alot if makes millions of jobs and helps new tech around the world 🤔

    Such a plant must be absolutely terrorist proof and be deemed international demilitarized zones. Any state attacking one would be attacked by all.

    Fusion material, if spread into the atmosphere would release neutrons (except hydrogen-boron fusion) and Alpha particles (which are prone to trigger cancer in the digestive and respiratory epithelia). Therefore Tokamak are dangerous machines as they work with plasmas that have instabilities, which cannot be controlled. If these reach the inner side of the Tokamak, it will melt... You can imagine what will happen!
