Panel Discussion of the Nuclear Fusion Net Gain of Energy In and Out of the Target

LLNL’s experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output, demonstrating for the first time a most fundamental science basis for inertial fusion energy (IFE). Many advanced science and technology developments are still needed to achieve simple, affordable IFE to power…
Panel Discussion of the Nuclear Fusion Net Gain of Energy In and Out of the Target


LLNL’s experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output, demonstrating for the first time a most fundamental science basis for inertial fusion energy (IFE). Many advanced science and technology developments are still needed to achieve simple, affordable IFE to power homes and businesses, and DOE is currently restarting a broad-based, coordinated IFE program in the United States.

If captured with 100% efficiency, the 1.05 Megajoules is enough to power a hair dryer for 30 minutes. It is about 280 watts.

The Net Gain is the energy hitting the pellet target and the energy coming out of the target.

Asia Population Peaks by 2040 Under 5 Billion

The pre-COVID UN 2019 population forecast was for Asia’s population to grow from about 4.6 billion to about 5.3 billion around 2055. Recent census for India and China have reported sharper drops in birthrates even before COVID. COVID is further suppressing birthrates. India will likely only add 100-140 million people instead of 273 million. China’s…
