I figured SA was your inspiration to mention fusion. Scott had been proclaiming fusion to be worked out, but simply an engineering problem (as if the engineering was a trivial matter). Now he's changed his tune due to Musk.

I'll never say never, but there's got to be good reasons why we don't have fusion yet. I mean, that's also why we don't have batteries that don't suck and solar so cheap that it displaces everything else... that it's hard to make a thing better (or work in the first place).

Speaking of Helium 3, those who like Sci-Fi should watch Moon.
