This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.
Zero-emission fusion reactor developed by engineers at the University of Washington, promises ‘cheaper than coal’ energy.
The design of the reactor creates a magnetic field to hold plasma, in extremely high temperature, in place long enough for fusion to occur.
The engineers warn a full-sized version is years away, and claim the design is cheaper than building a coal power station.
Thomas Jarboe, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the university, said:
“Right now, this design has the greatest potential of producing economical fusion power of any current concept.”
