    Posted By: alsetalokinI'd settle for a working form of government, and universal health care.

    Bears repeating.

    Looks like those are about as likely as fusion powered antigravity time machines, though.

    Well, not really--he said "by 2023 or so". He didn't say "If we don't get commercial fusion by 2023, I'll donate my kidneys and right hand to an organ bank."

    A tad more about first light.

    First Light Uses a Electromagnetic Railgun to Fire Mach 58 Projectiles to Create Fusion.

    The video would seem to imply that they've got a working device producing electricity.

    The CGI renderings would imply otherwise.

    What's the truth?

    The truth is that this 'General Fusion' isn't even a General. Or a person.

    ? Which video? The one on their website starts out "What if...?" and doesn't seem to claim anything. Anyway they don't have results yet as far as I know.

    They have done some tests but not enough to produce useful power.

    One day we will have twenty different competing methods of doing fusion. Perhaps.

    Yes, but will any of them work?
