Yeah, but does it work? I also find it a little difficult to believe that the Chinese have leap frogged over the EU, Russia and US. Oh, I forgot. Their spies stole the technology. Xinhua cited the scientists as saying that deuterium and tritium atoms had been fused together at a temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius for nearly three seconds. so yes, it did work. Though only for three seconds. Also, the Chinese and deffinetly the Japanese are great engineer's. They havent leap-frogged over any other country, this fusion reacter is experimental. Though I wonder if they'd share the schematic... [More]

FYI: Fusion research in the United States began in 1951, when the Atomic Energy Commission established a secret program called Project Sherwood to investigate the feasibility of using a controlled fusion reaction to generate power. By contrast, China exploded an atomic bomb at 15:00 hours on October 16, 1964, thereby successfully carrying out its first nuclear test.

Although it has nothing to do with what I was saying Also, just because the USofA made theories doesn't mean they had the cabability to actually put it in motion (being 1951). We may have now,...

The more any nation does to elminate the hold over people that oil has, the better the whole planet will be. Most of us can barely wait for the day we can all say we don't need oil anymore. Muwahahaha!
