Controlled nuclear fusion, energetic utopia
Leandro Meléndez Lugo and José Arturo Aguilar Jiménez
Through a comprehensive analysis, accentuated by theoretical scientific and economic aspects, using a basic physical approach about compressed air, an observation about magnetic field plasma compression is made. This observation, about the attempt to use the magnetic field confinement in controlled nuclear fusion, is related to the fact, aside from several technological and economic problems, that a magnetic field cannot properly confine ionized gas; in the best case it can only constrict the movement of ions and electrons. The analysis results leave little confidence that the conventional method intended to achieve the goal of controlled nuclear fusion could succeed. Also facing this complex scenario plenty of technical and economic difficulties; we try to offer an alternative method that could provide hope for the commercial use of nuclear fusion reactions.
