Boeing patents laser-powered fusion-fission jet engine (that’s truly impossible)

ARS Technica Sebastian Anthony (UK) – Jul 12, 2015 Lasers fuse hydrogen, causing uranium to fission, which generates electricity. Zzzap! The pellet/hohlraum is imploded by lasers, causing the hydrogen isotopes to fuse. Hot gasses rush out the back of the engine, creating thrust. The uranium-238 coating is bombarded with neutrons from the fusion reaction, starting … Read moreBoeing patents laser-powered fusion-fission jet engine (that’s truly impossible)

Kip Siegel

Inspired by Dr. Teller’s work, and his prophetic warning to keep people informed, a Michigan physics professor named Dr. Keeve (Kip) Siegel formed the first and only private-sector company to pursue controlled fusion research using lasers. In the early 1970s, he formed KMS Industries, with the goal of successfully achieving laser inertial fusion energy. With … Read moreKip Siegel
