FUSION power breakthrough!

Every environmentalist in the world should be salivating over the possibility that this is true.

The International Academy of Science has announced thier Outstanding Technology of the Year Award.

For 2006 the award goes to Dr. Robert Bussard:

Dr. Robert W. Bussard is an American physicist working primarily in nuclear fusion energy research. Bussard received his PhD from Princeton. He is currently functioning as co-founder and director of Energy/Matter Conversion Corporation. He is the former Assistant Director to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and has held prominent positions at Los Alamos National Laboratories, Oakridge Labs, and TRW Systems.
For what technological breakthrough did Dr. Bussard win?

Dr. Bussard and his team at Energy/Matter Conversion Corporation, after close to 20 years of hard work, have developed a revolutionary radiation-free fusion process that could change the world as we know it today.

Fusion is the energy that powers everything in the universe. The sun's energy comes from fusion. Alternatively, fission is the process whereby heavy atoms, which are nearly unstable, are split into two radioactive atoms. Fusion, on the other hand, is when two light atoms merge.

If this is true, and works, then this in the energy breakthrough that we have been waiting for.
