From the time that the first hydrogen bomb was exploded, administrators and politicians have urged the rapid development of controlled fusion. It is indeed a wonderful prospect to harness fusion energy since the fusion fuel is abundant, fusion reactors would be exceptionally safe, and the storage of waste products would present practically no problem. Some of us foresaw that to achieve controlled fusion would take research that would not only take a long time, but would also be extremely interesting, and yield many scientific byproducts.
