Helion Energy plans to build modular power fusion reactors using somewhat larger than shipping container sized, 50 Megawatt modules for distributed base load power generation. Helion uses Magneto-Inertial Fusion that combines the stability of steady magnetic fusion and the heating of pulsed inertial fusion. They claim they have a commercially practical system that is smaller [...]

Jaeyoung Park and the team at Energy Matter Conversion Corporation (EMC2) have released a research paper (with videos) discussing the results from a scaled down version of the late Dr. Robert Bussard’s famous wiffleball method of seeking a viable net energy fusion reactor. The paper simply reports experimental results validating the concept that plasma confinement [...]

Back on May 6th, Lawrenceville Plasma Physics and the Focus Fusion Society launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in an attempt to harness commercial fusion power using Eric Lerner’s theories on temperature and compression in a controlled plasma emission. Simply put – the research is proving out. The money needed is running out. The Focus Fusion [...]

Lewis G. Larsen one namesake of the famed Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) version of Cold Fusion and now heading Lattice Energy LLC in Chicago is reporting a claim to have developed a process for energy production, utilizing LENR that, as a byproduct of neutron captures on tungsten, will create a mix of precious metals. [...]

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) may have reached releasing fusion energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy used to confine the fuel.  The process has long been considered the “holy grail” of inertial confinement fusion science. There is reason to believe a key step along [...]
