Fusion boffins apply plasma know-how to building thrusters

Are we there yet?

TLDR - no.

But the lab experiments show promise in both fusion technology (the sustained containment of a plasma) and thruster technology (the controlled emissions of high energy particle beams).

Right now it's just a man with a plan and the video clearly shows that. But I am hopeful that a prototype can be developed and tested in a real world application.

Here's to the boffins and the dream.
