"In a presentation that seems ripped from the Atomic Age, Lockheed
Skunkworks says it might be a decade away from producing a power plant
based on compact fusion reactors. Unlike current nuclear reactors, all

that can be used in nuclear weapons. Fusion reactors also offer better
containment, easier shutoff, greater energy efficiency, and less
radioactive waste than their fissioning cousins."
