For those of you interested in either Physics or energy policy and its related politics, there is a great video over at Google Videos of a presentation made by Dr. Robert Brussard concerning his fusion reactor.
It is an hour and a half long, but well worth the time. His team's approach to the problems of fusion is very novel and seems, to me, head and shoulders above what others are doing in this field. His is the first project I have seen that makes me think we could have clean fusion in the next decade or so. Very exciting.
