News Stories relating to "fusion"
Friday, October 17, 2014
Research into alternative energy resources could be on the verge of a major breakthrough that could change the world forever.
The military contracts company, Lockheed Martin, has been working on a safer version of nuclear energy known as "compact fusion." The research is being conducted by Lockheed Martin's Advanced Development...

Fables have declared for millennia that the Moon, one of the most influential planets in our solar system, is made of green cheese.
The legend arose from an ancient tale that described how a wolf was convinced by his prey, a wiley fox, that the moon's reflection in a pool was a tasty round cheese. The hapless wolf was persuaded to...

After twenty years of controversy and obsessive debunking in the scientific community and the media, US Navy researchershave confirmed that cold fusion reactions can be reliablyreplicated in the laboratory. This is the kind of fusion that works through the electrolysis of heavy water, not the kind that needs Helium 3 as a fuel. It's almost...

The physics website physorg.com reports that researchers have developed a tabletop fusion accelerator that produces nuclear fusion at room temperature, which could eventually lead to a portable, battery-operated generator. The possibility of fusion energy, which has been debated for years, is finally becoming a reality.

Scientists have long tried to create fusion, the energy source of the sun. Claims have been made over the years, but they have always been refuted. Now researchers have done it, using a device the size of three stacked coffee cups. Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Rennsselaer Polytechnic Institute zapped tiny dissolved bubbles...
