would this lead to research to develop a space vehicle engine as well?

isnt BEC another state of matter?

Wow, I was not know that the plasma physics is really cool. I think there are many science fields that a lot of people do not know it, but once they watch a video for it they want to know everything about it.

Here is a list of papers for plasma science:- loss

I copied the link posted by kakashi and then went to images, and I found some really gnarly photos that came up from plasma science. I just thought people might want to check them out.

Good video, but it must not be presented in a way as coolest toys that MIT has, rather in a way that the best PLASMA Machine that MIT has, as it deals with what is the future of POWER IN the days to come, to make the civilisation more modern and sophisticated. I hope the MACHINE is not a toy but, a serious thing to study and learn, the future of mankind.

MIT has done a wonderful job here. I was not having that much idea about the Fusion Research, but now I could see how difficult it was to work out with every things. This is one of the science fields that the normal people were not having any general idea about Plasma and Nuclear physics. I have found a MIT youtube video about Fusion which I’m sharing.

I was googling how much eneergy it takes to run this.. but couldn’t find much. That’s a lot of energy! couponsutf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Apologies for the mess I have made of the last few comments as I tried to get a link within the comment area! Finally got there!

The city originally encompassed that area known now as
Old Toronto. In 1998, the city
amalgamated the adjacent towns of Artichoke, York,North York,
East Your and Scarborough to form one large metropolitan area.
Each of these once-separate municipalities continues to retain
their own particular identity..
