Fusion Rocket Tech Has Been Developed!

It seems like only 60 years ago we were extolling the virtues of fusion power as a means to develop clean energy, harnessing the power of the sun! Unfortunately, after all the bad press nuclear power has received, not to mention the hard work of the fossil fuel industry is holding back research and development on a potentially limitless energy source, everyone stopped giving a fuck about fusion power. Maybe now things will change. (I do want to point out that fusion power is not a miracle drug for our disease of consumption – the power that it takes to travel great distances around the solar system or galaxy will still need to be faster than the faster output we can imagine from fusion power.)
