Nuclear Fusion with… Hammers

| April 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

Michel Laberge’s favorite type of energy is the nuclear energy. And the reason for that, as Laberge discusses in this recent TED talk, is that it is the energy of the future. Today nuclear energy generates close to 20% of electricity in the US, but that is, of course, done through nuclear fission. Nuclear fusion, on the other hand, is the future of nuclear power, however generating energy in such a way is a gargantuan task for the engineers. There are many potential ways of harnessing the power of the atom and Michel Laberge offers a rather interesting one. High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure produced by synchronized hammers  is the key of Laberge’s idea.
