Not taking away from the valor of the crew. They deserve our undying respect.

But, the price paid for it..... I wonder.

What we need to do is have a Manhattan Project type effort to make fusion a reality. No waste. When you turn it off, it is off. We have to get off carbon for our progeny's sake. Ethanol and Biodiesel are worse than what they displace. Wind and Solar are fine but there is nothing like a 1 or 2 or more Giga-Watt power plant.
