America: New and safe fusion technology generates even more energy than break-even

Scientists repeat breakthrough in fusion power At the American National Ignition Facility laboratory, laser energy is converted into X-rays inside the chamber called the hohlraum. The fuel pellet inside is compressed until it implodes and a high-pressure, high-temperature plasma forms. Last year, news broke of a breakthrough in fusion power. American researchers had in an experiment achieved a net gain in energy. Now the same plant has repeated the result - and generated more energy. The major breakthrough was announced by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California last December. For the first time, net gain in energy had been achieved in a fusion experiment. https://www.nyteknik.se/energi/forskare-upprepar-genombrott-inom-fusionskraft/3929170 https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/aug/06/us-scientists-achieve-net-energy-gain-second-time-fusion-reaction?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other

                  This is amazing. Fusion is one of the promising prospects for getting rid of fossil fuels to generate power.
