Can Underwater Turbines Solve Our Energy Problems?
BMW Group, as promised, is securing supplies of key elements (lithium, cobalt) for its lithium-ion cell supplier directly from mining companies.
HZDR (German) scientists are investigating whether controlled fusion could be facilitated with the assistance of tunneling processes using radiation But that is also a question of energy: the lower it is, the lesser the likelihood of tunneling.

For a sci-fi airplane, the de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver looks nothing like the future: stubby wings, a burly fuselage and two fat pontoons. It first flew in 1947.
This is an update of the system under development by John Brophy and his team and it will use a kilometer-scale, multi-hundred-megawatt phased-array laser to beam power to a vehicle that converts it to electrical power for a multi-megawatt electric p
Robert Adams updated the work on a phase 2 Pulsed Fission-Fusion (PuFF) Propulsion Concept. Robert works at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. This system should be able to achieve 15 kW/kg and 30,000 seconds of ISP.
Muon-catalyzed fusion has been studied for 60 years and new work with lasers and ultradense material could lead to commercial nuclear fusion.
