I’m reading this part of the article differently. Am I missing something?

Fusion, as the name suggests, is the exact opposite of fission. Instead of ripping atoms apart, extremely plentiful atoms like hydrogen are smashed together, giving off helium and a huge amount of energy.

Not to be a DB, but just cause it's in quotes it means it's true? Where is the source of the quote?

"Urban Fisher once again is named man of the year for the fifth year in a row."

It's in quotes so there you go!...LOL!

No that was Dan's year, but that was woman of the year, not man.

I'm buying it. Fusion is what fixed Tigers back and now he has a 192 mpg golf swing.

Someday, maybe. I hope. Right now I think we're still quite a ways off from practical applications.

Yes, they will have problems getting this online.

There is no waste material.

RE, accident: The worse I can think of would be a loss of magnetic containment and that would stop the reaction, so no big deal to the public. The reactor would be toast.....literally.

What about the guy below AND in quotes.

I did not know that story. Thanks for sharing. It seems he traveled 100 feet and gained an altitude of 12 feet. I would say that constitutes the first flight.

I am thinking trips is counting on this being true. He said he would probably not be around to see it.

Lots of thoughts on Whitehead here. I have long heard of the flights but never looked it up to this extent.

Janes may be right. I would think that the numerous people lobbying convinced them. To me it sounds like there is ample proof against him having the said flight in question.
