Micro fusion cells, just like the ones in Fallout, could be right around the corner.
Scientists say they have achieved small-scale nuclear fusion in a
tabletop experiment, using tried and true techniques that are expected
to generate far less controversy than past such claims.
This latest experiment relied on a tiny crystal to generate a strong
electric field. While the energy created was too small to harness cheap
fusion power, the technique could have potential uses in medicine,
spacecraft propulsion, the oil drilling industry and homeland security,
said Seth Putterman, a physicist at the University of California at Los
If this pans out, it could have some serious implications for global
society. Fusion powered cars, refridgerators, planes, computers,
seeminly anything. Maybe even fusion powered Chrysalis
