This is 10 months old, and they say 5 years, so call it 4 years now. (Presuming they continued working on it…)
I’m generally prone to seeing this kind of story and calling it hype or uniformed dreaming; but this is the skunkworks we’re talking about here. The folks who do the impossible on a daily basis. The folks who made a Mach 3 to 4 airframe when everyone else was happy to just do supersonic at all.
So is it real? Is it likely? If anyone can pull it off, these folks can.
No, it’s not “cold fusion”, it’s hot fusion; but in a smaller and more affordable / attainable package with a much faster development cycle. If they can pull this off the whole energy world changes. And
not only one word about “Global Warming” in the whole thing… Update: They have “impact on climate” stuck in where it was hard to notice.
