Nuclear Fusion

Finally they have chosen a country, France, to host ITER the first prototype FUSION reactor. Full scale electrical production may be far down the road but, what the hell, we're on the road.

For those of you that may not know, scientists have achieved small scale self-sustained hot fusion reactions, like what goes on in the sun, using the Tokamak model.

What has been holding up further development for years now was the bidding war among other things, among the six countries vieing to host the next, full scale research model. At least that part is over.
