    And here I thought that SPARC was the name of a CPU architecture from Sun Microsystems.

    "The goal is to have SPARC operational by 2025, 2035 2045..."

    TL;DR:
    Though, for now, that still remains a big if.

    First Light Fusion fires up pulsed power machine for debut test.

    2.8 TW, 5.6 MJ, times six.

    There is something inherently scary about the juxtaposition of the terms "pulsed power" and "fusion".

    But more power to them, anyway.

    But current approaches to fusion would all yield pulsed power, if any of them worked.
  4.  
    Sure. And when one of them does finally work... will it work too well, and leave a big smoking hole in the ground? Or catch the atmosphere on fire or something equally interesting.

    Maybe they'll find the remains of one beneath the Martian surface

    No, there we will find a circular particle accelerator.

    What I need is a particle eliminator.

    I'm holding out for a secret cache of strangelets

    Oxford Uni, who do they think they are Cambridge?

    First Light working with UKAEA on “fusion island” concept.

    Flatpack fusion!

    United States should prepare to build a prototype fusion power plant, panel says.

    The US also needs to develop a time machine and antigravity generator as well.

    I'd settle for a working form of government, and universal health care.

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

    Not without a good flux capacitor, at any rate.
