If this is true, and I believe it is, gas, oil, coal, internal combustible engine industries will all go the way of the buggy whip business.

The future will be very different indeed. I'm just a bit disappointed that I will not see it. I see great improvements coming. Clean air, abundant fresh water, cheap energy, the middle east turned back to a desert vice a killing ground and many others.

Interesting times.

I've read about cold fusion for a decade. I'm not buying in at the point.

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

It's NOT cold fusion. It's contained fusion. Oh, yes, believe it.

I do wish that there were some way of letting Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein know about this ... if this information is true, then humanity may finally be able to expand to the solar system and eventually to the stars.

Market forces drive deployment of innovation. As long as the cost is comparable to fossil fuel energy production it will take over.

If it requires citizen subsidies(government) to compete then it's not a daisy, it's not a daisy at all.

Another aspect is whether is ever enters the free-market for multiple companies to deploy. If it is single sourced...never works out well.

I hope for the best but we've been fooled before.

Massive government agencies and regulation are probably on the drawing board just waiting to be unleashed on this new industry.

Problem is, the fuel is He3 (Helium 3). Very rare on Earth, but not on the moon. Why do you think Elon Musk and others are into the rocket launch and recovery business?

In a startling announcement a few days ago, Jane's All the World's Aircraft has named an August 1901 flight by Connecticut aviation pioneer Gustave Whitehead as the first successful powered flight in history, beating the Wright brothers' first flight by more than two years.

Unquote.

Just in case you are questioning me.

nope , not questioning , just realize all the hoops they will go thru to test and put this into production. what about waste ? how do you dispose of that ? what about if they are in an accident ? still a long way off in my opinion
