  3. Great story!

  4. In Romania Braila there are 12°C, in Jan 2015 normal weather was – 15
    , hurry up

  5. Glad I waited until the hype died down before celebrating. As I suspected at the time of the overdramatic announcement, there are still some serious caveats and hurdles to overcome before we get our energy this way. It’s nice to see that we’re at least making tangible progress.

  6. Always seems to be a new carrot to chase… New nuclear is far more efficient and effective with a small footprint then any point in history but yet here we go again…. With the tip jar

  7. Please don’t make earth to sun..

  8. Nuclear power was already a world-changing accomplishment, and could power the entire world in a far cheaper and more environmentally-friendly way. Why was it never implemented on a global scale? Fear, and more importantly, because it would render coal nearly useless. Which is bad for business. Until the world is not controlled by the worst greed-driven monsters you could ever imagine, the world will not change.

The idea of a world powered by fusion is truly exciting and this video is a great reminder of the incredible things we can achieve when we work together. The contrast and comparison of the current state of nuclear energy and the potential for fusion is truly fascinating. Kudos to the team at NIF and the “60 Minutes” team for bringing this incredible story to light. The future is looking brighter with every step forward in fusion research.

  10. Changes the world makes it better place let’s hope it happen soon .
