Breakthrough in Fusion Research Brings New Nuclear Power Source Closer

Nuclear fusion has similarities to conventionally produced nuclear power in that it produces zero carbon electric power, but its big advantage over fission nuclear power is that it generates no nuclear waste, the bane of fission nuclear power plants. Recent research breakthroughs are bringing closer the day that power generation from fusion reactors will become a reality.

While research to develop commercially viable nuclear fusion has been underway for decades, advances have been slow due to the immense technological complexities involved and modest funding. That said, recent technological breakthroughs may hasten progress.

On 19 March the University of Michigan announced that a team of University of Michigan and Princeton researchers has uncovered a new kind of magnetic behavior that could help make nuclear fusion reactions easier to start. Designers of inertial fusion ignition systems may be able to use this newly discovered feature to place the laser spots so that they heat the target fuel cylinder more quickly and efficiently. Assistant Professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences Alexander Thomas said, "Essentially, what we found is a completely new magnetic reconnection mechanism. Though we're studying it in an inertial confinement fusion process, it might be relevant to the surface of the sun and magnetic confinement fusion."

The miners have started 2014 very well indeed on the back of rising gold prices, so the question is; is this the real deal or another head fake? Is the bottom really in? Could there be a final capitulation just ahead of us? Will the summer doldrums take the PMs lower?
