    Breakthrough?!? MIT Scientists Ecstaticly Announced Containment Device For Fusion

    This could change everything! MIT scientist are figuratively jumping up and down telling the world they believe they have found the secret to building a manageable sized magnet system that can contain a sustainable reaction necessary to produce nuclear fusion to produce vast quantities of electricity safely. Prototype to be built by 2025 and high expectations for commercialization shortly thereafter.

    The world would never be the same.

    Great news, but I suspect we might not have to wait that long for fusion...........

    I hope they succeed. If they can create the energy, store it and transport it, we all win.

    I remain optimistic that this long sought goal will be realized in the near future---for the betterment of all mankind and our planet.

    As for the MIT team---it doesn't get better than that
