Nuclear fusion energy in a decade?
Lockheed Martin takes investors for a ride.


PALMDALE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2014 – The Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] Skunk Works® team is working on a new compact fusion reactor (CFR) that can be developed and deployed in as little as ten years. Currently, there are several patents pending that cover their approach.

While fusion itself is not new, the Skunk Works has built on more than 60 years of fusion research and investment to develop an approach that offers a significant reduction in size compared to mainstream efforts.

“Our compact fusion concept combines several alternative magnetic confinement approaches, taking the best parts of each, and offers a 90 percent size reduction over previous concepts,” said Tom McGuire, compact fusion lead for the Skunk Works’ Revolutionary Technology Programs. “The smaller size will allow us to design, build and test the CFR in less than a year.”

After completing several of these design-build-test cycles, the team anticipates being able to produce a prototype in five years. As they gain confidence and progress technically with each experiment, they will also be searching for partners to help further the technology.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 113,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s net sales for 2013 were $45.4 billion.

Artist's commentary

  • Original
  • If hentai use F2P(P2W) business model

    Just an idea (not exactly a good idea but here it goes) about business model practice on gaming lately (especially on mobile games).
    The system that nickel and dimed you on the things that necessarily to progress the game. And the overpowered items you only get
    to pay for. And the timeout system that prevented you to play more. And crucial story chapters or characters that have been sliced out
    to make DLCs. And Confusing in-game currency system.

    Just take my money and give me a completed experience !(or at least for good amount of it)

    p.s There still are reasonable Free to Play games out there that make you want to pay to support them. good system supported by
    cosmetic items and services that not destroy the balance of the game. or reasonable DLCs that give you fair amount of "content" they
    have promised.
