U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced a nuclear fusion energy breakthrough at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory at 10 a.m. on December 13th. The test is said to be the first demonstration of the most fundamental scientific basis for inertial fusion energy by delivering 2.05 megajoules of energy to a target to result in 3.15 joules of fusion energy output through controlled fusion. On December 5th, a team from the lab conducted the first milestone controlled fusion experiment in history. However, large-scale applications will still require many advanced scientific and technological developments to achieve simple, collectible energy. This is a major scientific breakthrough that will change everyday life for mankind. It means that humans can make their own sun, achieve their own energy production, and make clean energy. Achieving a net-zero carbon economy without fossil fuel becomes a reality, and the planet will have limitless, inexpensive, clean energy in the foreseeable future. This milestone will undoubtedly spark even more discoveries and will be a game changer, said U.S. Energy Secretary Granholm. After countless human wars over energy, countries in the Middle East will experience a crisis when self-made clean energy is achieved, and the international rules of competition should be changed.
