Is Fusion Power Viable?

As a rough guide 1 gram of antimatter produces about 40 megatons of TNT, but costs presently around $60,000,000,000,000 to make, or $1.50 per kilogram of TNT power. It may become a source of power in decades or centuries time but is not viable at the moment. So, we come down to the next source […]

Some suggest that they have very long infection periods in that country, way beyond […]

Coronavirus Risks 5 (SARS-CoV-2)

I’ve been following the virus for over 50 weeks now. Originally I thought that it would be very limited, but that changed about 49 weeks ago, when the numbers began to rise and we found out more about it. The infected seem to consist of a lot that are in recovery, active cases currently 28.9% […]
