Solve for X: Charles Chase on energy for everyone

Published on Feb 11, 2013 by Solve for X

Problem: Energy access & climate change

Solution: A 100MW compact fusion reactor that runs on plentiful and cheap deuterium and tritium (isotopes of hydrogen).

Breakthrough technology: Charles Chase and his team at Lockheed have developed a high beta configuration, which allows a compact reactor design and speedier development timeline (5 years instead of 30).
