Renewed interest in nuclear fusion for energy including muon-catalyzed fusion

My friend DJ referenced a good article on  nuclear fusion on his blog. One promising area of fusion research is Muon-catalyzed fusion — that is, if the energy obtained from the reaction is more than the energy put in. According to this power-point from University of Illinois, hybrid reactors (combination of fission + fusion) reactors stand the greatest chance of being practical.

  1. Thanks for the tip of the hat, brother! Hope all is well on your end. I hope Kurt drags you back to the coffee shop sooner rather than later.
