Submission + - Google Earth tour contrasts Iter, focus fusion (focusfusion.org)

Xereq writes: As a volunteer for the Focus Fusion Society, I'm pleased to report work is progressing steadily at the very open but very tiny focus fusion research effort by Lawrenceville Plasma Physics. LPP's "FoFu-1" dense plasma focus device is running experiments that will try to determine the scientific feasibility of net energy from advanced fuels (which are even cleaner but also more challenging) within a year. While featured previously on Slashdot, focus fusion research remains relatively unknown, and even the mighty Iter project remains obscure in the public's mind. This Google Earth tour seeks to provide a friendly introduction to a wider audience for both projects, to try and build excitement as FoFu-1 goes for "breakeven" in the coming months and Iter sets out on its long journey. After ending the tour at the Googleplex itself, I think others will also be curious: Will Google's "RE less than C" initiative be taking another look at focus fusion soon?
