Энергетикам на заметку

Народ активно обсуждает http://www.emc2fusion.org/, ибо (http://www.science.edu/TechoftheYear/TechoftheYear.htm):
In summary, Dr. Bussard's Inertial Electrostatic Fusion offers

Small, efficient power reactors, 1-3% the size of current magnetic confinement reactors.

Clean, radiation-free energy utilizing p B-11.

Relatively simple engineering with commercial viability in 6-10 years.

Low cost ($150-200 million from program inception to demonstration of clean power.)


Кто это? Dr. Robert W. Bussard is an American physicist working primarily in nuclear fusion energy research. Bussard received his PhD from Princeton. He is currently functioning as co-founder and director of Energy/Matter Conversion Corporation. He is the former Assistant Director to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and has held prominent positions at Los Alamos National Laboratories, Oakridge Labs, and TRW Systems.

Вся эта история крайне неоднозначная. Максимум подробностей в видео http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1996321846673788606 (почти годичной давности). Очень, очень любопытно.

Кстати, кто хочет поглядеть на "народную ядерную физику" может заглянуть на http://www.fusor.net/.
А вот и участие наших ребят из Томкска: http://www.engineerlive.com/news/17646/power-generation-nuclear-fusion-closer.thtml (они делают возможным электрический импульс в 6мегавольт и 60 мегампер).
