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 with sound waves, triggering a flash of light and super-high temperatures. They call their experiment ?bubble fusion.?
