If the whole world lived off nuclear fuel,
how long would the world's supply of nuclear fuel last?

Robert Steinhaus's answer: It is important to not leave out nuclear fusion of deuterium obtained from the world’s oceans from your calculations. The majority (about 3/5ths) of the earth is covered by water. Natural Uranium dissolves in seawater (while Thorium does not). While the uranium concen...

There are classes of nuclear reactions that combine nuclear fusion and nuclear fission.

Robert Steinhaus's answer: There are classes of nuclear reactions that combine nuclear fusion and nuclear fission. Proton-Boron-11 fusion p + B-11 -> C12 -> 3*He4 +8.6MeV This “fusion-fission” reaction involves two stages first stage - a proton fuses with B11 to form heavier C12 (fusion process)...

Is there reason to believe that nuclear fusion could be more affordable than nuclear fission as a source of energy?
(Yes, there is)

Robert Steinhaus's answer: Yes, there reason to believe that nuclear fusion could be more affordable than nuclear fission as a source of energy, but the type of nuclear fusion is probably quite different from the mainstream of fusion research being conducted today. Fusion and the need for Humili...

How would the world change if nuclear fusion became affordable and efficient?
Would abundant universal access to fusion energy bring an end to war over resources?

Franklin Veaux's answer: A lot of social, political, resource, and environmental problems are actually power problems in disguise. Cheap, plentiful, non-polluting energy solves a lot of otherwise intractable problems. If fusion power lived up to the promise of cheap, abundant power, almost every...

Sometimes success in real estate (and in nuclear fusion) has mostly to do with location.
LLNL's new TanDM positioner helps accurately place fusion targets for simultaneous irradiation by 192 laser beams.

While multitasking may be easy for some people (and perhaps hard for others), it can be a particular challenge for the highly specialized equipment used to carry out experiments on the National Ignition Facility (NIF).

Are fusion reactors that produce energy in a series of small controlled explosions any good?

Robert Steinhaus's answer: It is widely suggested that here are two types of fusion — fusion producing controlled smooth controlled burn (GOOD) and uncontrolled explosive fusion (BAD) – but is this really true? Are there in reality two types of fusion? It has been demonstrated that in uncon...

In near future, will it be possible to harness energy using controlled fusion on earth?
Bram van Es, PhD researcher applying numerical analysis to nuclear fusion and involved in project ITER provides a thoughtful answer.

Bram van Es's answer: The current roadmap, if you will, of nuclear fusion technology has two major concepts being developed in parallel. These are (a) inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and (b) magnetic confinement fusion (MCF). Beside these we can define the group of miscellaneous concepts which ...

We have all heard the case for fusion from the strong technical optimists.
What are the cons of nuclear fusion?

Robert Steinhaus's answer: The ultimate potential of fusion energy for lifting the general condition of all human kind on earth is very, very great. Nuclear fusion may however for some additional decades have problems competing with other types of power generation until all of the commercial fus...

Building fission or fusion nuclear reactors today is not an easy business proposition.
The majority of nuclear power plant projects under construction worldwide are currently behind schedule.

Building nuclear-power plants is costly and prone to delays, yet some upstarts are showing that large reactor projects are still viable
