Fusion power could happen sooner than you think

Fusion power could happen sooner than you think: http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2013-02/fusion-power-could-happen-sooner-you-think?src=facebook "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 of which use fission, nuclear fusion does not easily produce materials 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."
