Restarting the Atomic Age – Why Lockheed Martin’s Compact Fusion Announcement is Such a Big Deal

On Wednesday, Lockheed Martin announced that its Skunk Works division is on the verge of a breakthrough, developing a compact fusion reactor that will be emission free and totally safe to operate.

Let that sink in. Yeah.

Only time will tell if this will actually be the revolution it promises to be (and if it won’t just enrich the “defense” industry) but even the potential that this could be happening in the next decade is huge.
