For decades Man has dreamed of harnessing fusion power, the energy source that drives the Sun. However, the path has been difficult and long. To recreate fusion on Earth, we must use different, more sophisticated, methods to accomplish the same task that the Sun so easily accomplishes by virtue of its prodigious mass.
Why has the fusion community worked so hard to solve such a seemingly intractable problem? Because success will transform the world in a way that we can only begin to imagine. Our economy, our lifestyles, the environment, and much of our politics are affected by the availability and control of oil and other dwindling energy resources. In contrast, the fuel to sustain a world powered by fusion energy is easily accessible, nonpolluting, and virtually limitless - simple seawater.
Developing fusion energy is difficult and will take a while. In the meantime, we are developing other applications of our plasma jet technology. One of those is a pulsed plasma thruster for space propulsion. This is an exciting application of our high performance plasma jets that holds real promise for a more robust, cheaper electric thruster system.
