Lockheed Martin Announces Breakthrough in Nuclear Fusion Energy

This is amazing! Nuclear fusion has been much-talked about but little has been brought to market. Lockheed Martin says they’ll have a prototype in five years and for sale in ten years. Why so long? -LW

(Reuters) – Lockheed Martin Corp said on Wednesday it had made a technological breakthrough in developing a power source based on nuclear fusion, and the first reactors, small enough to fit on the back of a truck, could be ready for use in a decade.

Tom McGuire, who heads the project, said he and a small team had been working on fusion energy at Lockheed’s secretive Skunk Works for about four years, but were now going public to find potential partners in industry and government for their work.

Initial work demonstrated the feasibility of building a 100-megawatt reactor measuring seven feet by 10 feet, which could fit on the back of a large truck, and is about 10 times smaller than current reactors, McGuire told reporters.

In a statement, the company, the Pentagon’s largest supplier, said it would build and test a compact fusion reactor in less than a year, and build a prototype in five years.

Full Story.

    I live by Lockheed Martin, and have constant mega amounts of craft in the Sky’s above my house..just sayin. Some are huge!!!
    Many. Large craft drop down, and release many smaller craft,and later pick them back up..this is not new..this corp has intel hundreds of years beyond what is being released to the public.li just wish they would stop the lies..so many are seeing the craft in the skies, esp around military bases…they need to tell people the truth.

    shannon, I agree… something in this Lockheed story doesn’t add up. They went public with this “breakthrough” Feb 2013. Lockheed, a $56-Billion capitalization could simply do an IPO to raise the capital on a partially funded spin-off, if they have faith in this reactor design. Your answer seems as good as anything I can figure out. I thought at first Lockheed might be trying to influence federal research dollars at a different level than their usual black ops. The only thing I can see that seems to make this moment urgent for alternative energy this update found on the HOPEGIRL BLOG and the Bloom Boxes being set up all over Silicon Valley

    Plus, Foster Campbell annual alternative energy conference keeps telling us that zero point energy devices are reaching break-through. Campbell (and his wife) set up “Thrive The Movie” with over 30-million views now, worldwide and according to Campbell they are trying to figure out a way to make the technology available to the public through philenthropic funding to buy out all right title and interest in a couple of the zero point energy device inventors. Just Google “(Official Movie) THRIVE: What On Earth Will It Take?”

    Because its just another stick with a carrot attached at the end.

    They are trying to slow progress and claim patent. We all know they already know nuclear fusion. They are trying to maximize profits prevent others from reaping any rewards. These people are involved in crimes against us big time. They see the tides turning
