0:00 Trace has a clone?!
0:50 So what the fusion just happened?
1:32 if you watch this you’ll know everything
2:07 and that’s what happened… but, there’s more
2:41 The Q is the Breakthrough
2:53 is that a lot of energy?
3:32 that’s it? why should I care?
4:10 things will get better
4:54 More Research is Needed!
6:43 Fusion is just steam power
7:42 But what about climate change
8:31 fusion is 1,000,000 times more powerful than gasoline
9:49 it’s just water!
10:30 ACTUALLY: Just go to Nebula (see Description)
11:36 thank you thank you thank you

Two weeks ago, at the National Ignition Facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory they fired the largest laser in the world at a fusion pellet the size of a BB. What happened next was WILD — more energy was recorded exiting the fuel than the lasers put in. What does that mean? It means not only did the atoms inside the fuel fuse, but they fused in a similar way they would inside our nearest star. Some questions I had: How does this work? What did they do? What does this mean for the field of fusion? Will they do it again?

The Shot Heard ‘Round the World:
Fusion ignition breakthrough hailed as ‘one of the most impressive scientific feats of the 21st century’
US officials announce nuclear fusion breakthrough
“We are still a very long way from having fusion power the electric grid, never mind one power plant itself. The US project, while groundbreaking, only produced enough energy to boil about 2.5 gallons of water, Tony Roulstone, a fusion expert from the University of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, told CNN.”
How fusion works: ITER Organization
Although different isotopes of light elements can be paired to achieve fusion, the deuterium-tritium (DT) reaction has been identified as the most efficient for fusion devices…
Nuclear Fusion Power information from World Nuclear
Fusion power offers the prospect of an almost inexhaustible source of energy for future generations, but it also presents so far unresolved engineering challenges.
