Ignitor: MIT-Designed Fusion Reactor, Built in Italy and Assembled in Russia, Better Than ITER

Originally designed for studying astrophysics, a fusion reactor of the MIT from the 1970s, called "Alcator", could be the base of another one to be installed in Russia and managed by Bruno Coppi. The new reactor is called Ignitor and, as far as the plans sound, it is ready to surpass ITER as both performance and time to go into production.

The semi-official name of the blue thing on Tony Stark's chest is the Repulsor Tech node.  And it's more of science fact than fiction...

Clean Nuclear Fusion Now Possible Using Electromagnetic Waves

Two MIT scientists, physicist Yijun Lin and principal research scientist John Rice, using the university's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor, proved that electromagnetic waves produced with the help of a Tokamak (pictured above) could be used to keep that plasma hot and make nuclear fusion possible.

Old Nuclear Submarines Could Generate Clean Hydrogen

Who said that the nuclear age is over is not quite right. Nuclear weapons exist all over the world since WW2, and they are being stored in all kinds of places, including submarines. These nuclear supplies could give us extra energy at a price similar to oil, if not better.

Nuclear Fusion: NIF Scientists Getting Out More Energy Than They Put In

The black sheep of the clean energy family, nuclear power, has dealt with a PR stigma for decades. Some of it deserved (potential destructiveness...

Scientists Discover Huge Energy Source by Breaking a Nature Law In Ion Collider

Things are to be discussed, but it looks like scientists from the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, using their Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), created a symmetry-breaking bubble of space where parity, one of nature's fundamental concepts, no longer existed for a tiny fraction of a second.
