9/11 Twin Tower Collapse Provides Data For Building Better Fusion…

Don't be afraid. You can read that headline again. I'll wait for you... Aaaand, okay: With cold fusion nowhere in sight, hot fusion looks to be the cleanest way to whip up some atomic energy. However, the steel needed to line the reactor may not be able to take the heat. UK scientists said that temperatures inside… » 9/10/08 8:00pm 9/10/08 8:00pm

Scientist Creates Cold Fusion For the First Time In Decades

Cold fusion, the act of producing a nuclear reaction at room temperature, has long been relegated to science fiction after researchers were unable to recreate the experiment that first "discovered" the phenomenon. But a Japanese scientist was supposedly able to start a cold fusion reaction earlier this week, which—if… » 5/24/08 1:00pm 5/24/08 1:00pm

Scientists Consider Mining Delicious Helium-3 on Moon For Fusion Power…

After sucking our planet dry of any useful resources, we turn our eyes upward to the skies and search for another beautiful planet to rape. Scientists are hoping to mine helium-3 (He3) gas from the lunar surface — a gas that's rare here on Earth but is like a veritable Starbucks on the Moon. The gas is considered to… » 8/24/07 7:44pm 8/24/07 7:44pm
