way to totally twist my words around ******

and you didnt answer the ****ing question either
looks like you answered your own ****ing question then. another star. how do stars make elements heavier than helium? they go nova.

The by product of this reaction is definitely NOT uranium, or a radioactive isotope.
If that answers your question.

10-12 FEET, spherical machine lined with magnets is how post 16 should read

Well it's about ****ing time. Though I won't be particularly surprised if it turns out to be a bust, it'll be fun either way.

My confidence in scientific research to yield the means to more efficient power production is roughly equivalent to my jaded belief that our political and civic infrastructure will remain corrupt enough that winter heat bills will continue to increase regardless.

This is partially correct, however it is commonly accepted now that our sun is actually a remnant of a larger star that existed before it. This star exploded providing all the elements we have in the solar system (other than hydrogen and helium, which existed previously to form the original star). So in effect, all the uranium in our solar system did come from our sun, as did the earth, although it was a much larger sun than it is now.

Basically, all the elements above helium and hydrogen, that are in our solar system, originated here and were not pre-existing.

there is an international project to research fusion called ITER

ITER - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

i guess they are wasting billions of dollars since this guy already figured it out!

The solar system formed, as stars do, from a cloud of dust. Whatever created the cloud was not the sun. That would be just as silly as saying that the sun is the singularity before the big bang.

Bussard was a leader in creating the foundations for the ITER following back in the 70s. The reason he was a proponet of tokomak reactors was because they DoE would throw tons of money at the project. He could then use some of this grant money to proceed with the experiments he actually thought would be viable at some point. Thus, 35 years later, we have his fusion reactor. There were some problems that plagued them for 15 years, and those have all been (allegedly) ironed out.

Just like Nasa's shuttle workforce lobby (the reason we are using a shuttle based architecture and not a brand new thing - jobs and such), the tokomak lobby is huge. They have thousands of jobs and tons of very high ranking scientists have bet their careers on it. So of course countries with an interest in this already established job field are going to pursue a tech that, in 12 years, finally becomes operational. We won't even know if it is a good operation.

I quasi-touched on this in a previous post. For more info, go to Bussard's wiki, or follow one of the links i provided.

So how much of a boom will it make if one of these goes haywire and takes out a town?
