According to representatives of Lockheed Martin, that soon the world will radically change. Due to what? Due to the compact new-generation reactors.
Corporation for many years studied the problem of thermonuclear fusion. This is a very promising area, but it is extremely complicated. Now mankind has only a few test samples.
However, scientists from the laboratory Skunk Works was able to overcome the difficulties. They say they are ready to build a functioning unit of 100 megawatts. Similar efficacy classic, but 10 times smaller and safer.
That sounds great. Such a system fits easily into a truck. The first step to unlimited clean energy made?
Team Lockheed Martin for years engaged in the invention, in complete secrecy. Until then, until I realized that it can make the technology work.
The mystery had to reveal, for economic reasons. For prototyping and commercialization of need a lot of money. Therefore, the authors of the project decided to draw the attention of interested sponsors (public and private sectors).
The main thing is that there is no shortage of fuel. Only deuterium and tritium. First found in seawater, and the second is easily obtained from lithium (extracted “from the land”).
When Lockheed Martin will demonstrate an innovative platform? According to the information in the network – within 5 years. Active tests will begin in 2015.
