  • Lockheed Martin on rebooting the Atomic Age with Compact Fusion Research: Who says nuclear power has to be dangerous? Lockheed Martin's Skunkworks is working on a semi-portable nuclear fusion reactor they say could be small enough to power an airplane. Current research fusion reactors are humongous build-sized extremely expensive monstrosities that probably will not work out. This is relatively small, and the team leader is oozing with confidence they'll get it to work. Nuclear power safe enough to fly an airplane. It presents no proliferation risk, making it possible to ship to any country. If it works it could revolutionize the energy system, if it is inexpensive enough to financially supplant fossil fuels.
