Polywell Fusion

For anyone interested, here's the video of Professor Bussard giving his talk to Google back in 2006 on nuclear fusion. Bussard was the inventor of the polywell fusion reactor, the research program for which is being funded by the U.S. Navy with the reactor design currently at its eighth iteration. A nuclear fusion reactor would not only be entirely safe (i.e. emit no radiation at all) but would be significantly cheaper and far more powerful than the best fission reactors currently available.
