Iter site construction is now 78 % complete

ITER, the scientific experiment in southern France that aims to demonstrate that hydrogen fusion—the energy source of the Sun and stars—can be harnessed for electricity production on a massive scale.

At ITER, the European Union (plus the UK and Switzerland), China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States are opening the way to a new, safe, clean and unlimited energy source.

Is said to be finished in 2026. As a research facility it won’t generate electricity, just consume it. So far the record for technology is net loss of 1/3 thermal energy. The attempt is to gain 90% thermal energy by making things bigger.

Imho too little too late, but I wish them luck.

In other news, not sure what to think of it, but would be cool :clown_face:

“His slate of highly-ambitious, borderline sci-fi designs meant for use by the U.S. government range from gravitational wave generators and compact fusion reactors to next-gen hybrid aerospace-underwater crafts with revolutionary propulsion systems, and beyond.”

They once invented UFOs to cover up military aircraft tests, so I wouldn’t believe that. It’s probably just dying empire trying to cling to power by inventing ever more colorful propaganda for people to cling to during economical and social collapse.
