    Why tank? Just a block of ice.

    Then you have to cool it to keep it solid. The thermal radiation coming off a reactor must be considerable.

    Yeah, nuclear energy in general is a bad idea (except for fusion at a far distance captured with solar panels).

    I have no conceptual problems with aneutronic fusion, save that it does not yet exist.
    There's plenty of hydrogen and boron, and a vanishingly small radioactive residue.

    France is pretty far. I don't know about the solar panels, though.

    Don't seem much further along.

    HB11 Energy | new Laser Hydrogen-Boron fusion energy | Australia | HB11 Energy develops Laser Hydrogen Boron-11 fusion to provide a new source of unlimited, clean, safe and reliable energy. Our mission is to generate electricity using laser-ignited non-thermal fusion.

    No reports how Canada's general fusion is getting along either.
    This is just plain fusion.

    No news in that article--just the usual fluff.

    Fluff is the future of nuclear power. Especially fusion.

    Isn't going to happen. Playing too fast and loose with the numbers. It will, if constructed, probably run 5-10x the estimate here.

    Rack up another Muskerie. After Hyperloop, the Cave Torpedo the Boring Company's adagio tunneler, Neuralink's run in with animal cruelty, FSD's fizzle, I can't even look at that.

    it may have the musk of defeat clinging to it:)
