UK joins laser nuclear fusion project

Requiring only pellets composed of hydrogen isotopes and producing helium and neutrons, this method of nuclear fusion would provide nuclear power without many of the downsides of nuclear fission – the process that powers our nuclear power plants today – and sweep away many of the current geopolitical energy problems around fossil fuel supplies.

IMO: It could be extremely important if successful. But I am not yet sure that it may not be 'spin' caused by tight budgets. It will take several years for practical results, and how often have we heard that about nuclear fusion ? Maybe for 50 years. Anyway I hope it works,
