Could The ‘Fusion Engine’ Become a Reality Before 2020? - Yahoo Finance

Fusion energy, 20 years away 20 years ago and still 20 years away.

"I would like nuclear fusion to become a practical power source. It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming," said the world renowned physicist Stephen Hawking. If there are timely innovations in field of superconductors, batteries and materials that facilitate a compact and a more efficient fusion reactor, that could be enough to make fusion energy viable. The technology that is available today can only produce a Helion 'fusion engine' which is capable of producing commercial energy of around 50 megawatts.
