Major Breakthrough for Fusion Energy!


Recommended Posts

Essentially, for the first time ever, we have created a net gain of energy from fusion. This means we have figured out the physics of fusion energy, the next step is engineering.

That is amazing. 

 

Also sounds like we have a ways to go on powering the lasers…

The inefficient lasers used in the experiment required about 300 megajoules of energy to fire just 2 megajoules of energy into the experiment. The reaction produced about 3 megajoules of energy.

@Phil yea its great, they got the physics part down, now all thats left is the engineering part.

 

It's also cool to see how technological advancement is speeding up at an exponential rate.
