Fusion Prototype Reactor In Just Five Years

Those that have followed the development of fusion power over the last fifty years have always said that; “fusion is the future and it always will be”, but what if that were no longer true? What if we could make clean, plentiful fusion power available in a 100 megawatt prototype reactor by 2017? At a recent Solve for X lecture, Charles Chase of Lockheed’s Skunkworks suggests this could be possible. If true according to his time line a 100 megawatt production system could be ready as soon as 2022.
