    This unfortunate man is going to have a brief, painful life.

    He said this is his last one. TBH it has gotten way out of hand.

    I know this is engineering, not science, but still it's amazing and too bad Mark Rober is retiring.

    Middle school, a terror for us all.

    One of my all time favorite books from an early technology hero is The Cukoo's Egg by Cliff Stoll. The real-life story takes place at Livermore back in the late 80's.

    Might be the hardest part, but imagine trying to remove heat from an object that is +10M deg C without breaking down the surfaces. Everything about fusion is hard.

    Oh, and then maintaining the fusion... that's hard, too. Really hard.

    Then the hard parts... extracting the energy output.

    Given all of the various projects going on, it sure appears that we finally are 10 years away from real fusion reactors.

    Jesus. What a sour article. Scoob, they get you on staff and tell you to write about fusion if it were Minnesota sports?
    LOL. No, no one wants me writing for them. I suck at it.
