RE: Experimental Energy - Fusion

in STEMGeeks11 months ago

I hope you have a great week as well.

I need to learn how to fully read questions. I think I can accomplish that task but I find I don’t always reach the goal.

When you wrote about breakthroughs I only focused upon the technologies I was writing about. Breakthroughs in plasma management would significantly speed up the dev process.

There is another fusion process I deliberately didn’t discuss in this article because I wanted to handle it separately: muon-induced fusion. It can occur at room temperature and even cryogenic temperatures.

Sort:  

muon-induced fusion. It can occur at room temperature and even cryogenic temperatures

This would be a breakthrough :)

Don't worry about the questions and answers game. You can't know what goes on in my head when I pose the question.

To explain it a bit. Currently, I am reading Cixin Liu's trilogy Remembrance of Earth's Past

It's an intriguing read. A mixture of hard sci-fi, sociology, philosophy, ...

One of the major points of the series is the distinction of natural progress versus a breakthrough or a leap in scientific progress.

Like in space travel propellant, for example. Classic propulsion (rocket fuel) vs nuclear power (fission) vs fusion power.

Thanks a lot for this discussion, I appreciate it very much.
