"But Science imitating Art, this is part of AI - no ... not Artificial Intelligence, but American Ingenuity ..." fusion

Remember what 2015 was supposed to look like in 1985?

The movie Back to the Future  made many predictions.  There were hits and misses.  More hits than misses.  And here are some of them:  14 Things from Back to the Future II That Actually Came True, and 5 That Haven't... Yet 

Mr. Fusion?

Back to the Future II predicted Mr. Fusion.  Shown below is mad scientist  Doc Brown getting a refuel from a renewable source - garbage.

What about this one?  Hit or miss?

Last year, 2014, an interesting announcement came out:  Lockheed says makes breakthrough on fusion energy project | Reuters   And this clip shows the rest of the story:

A compact fusion reactor which can be placed on a small truck?  Clean unlimited energy source?  Perhaps a global game changer.  Well, now we may be 20 years away.

But Science imitating Art, this is part of AI - no ... not Artificial Intelligence, but

American Ingenuity ...

I love your information filled articles and this one is particularly dear to my heart. Back to the future, indeed, was quite predictive of the future. The vehicle wasn't.

After 60 years of futility with fusion, the video suggests a coming breakthrough… finally. I wonder if I should run out and buy Lockheed-Martin stock? For the sake of our world and every being on it, let's hope that the breakthrough comes sooner rather than later.

Now, if we could only stop all the bomb making and saber rattling from the older, fission process. But then, I recall that the H-bomb was the first time we achieved fusion on earth… Oh well…

The title caught my attention: Mr. Fusion indeed! Well the thought of the deuterium tritium implosion is exciting stuff, with memories of Oppie, Teller, Fermi, Feynman, and all the cast at Los Alamos and beyond. Seems that like the moonwalk, once we get past a certain success that the real science goes underground and perhaps continues far beyond what we will ever know. Just a thought!
