Our times might be considered as the rerun of the early decades of the 1500s where scientific and technological breakthroughs replace geographical discoveries made about 500 years ago.
These is the very reason why John Thornhill is absolutely right saying that time has come to bet big on fusion energy /FT, 19 November 2021/.
In the next 20ys human ambitions will successfully drive new discoveries that will answer to our main challenges. The single most important of all challenges is to save GAIA, to save our Planet. In order to defeat our destroying habits, we must create the ultimate carbon free energy source from water and lithium. This is fusion energy.
