The Fusion Powered Future

Post by Paul_Schatzkin » Fri Jul 20, 2001 4:04 pm

That attached file is an excerpt from Pem Farnsworth's book "Distant Vision." During the mid 1960s, Philo T. Farnsworth overcame his reluctance to speak in public, and on a few occasions described his vision of the future that controlled fusion would produce. The vision is at times rather fantastic, and utopian, but is worth reading, considering it comes from a man for whom controlled fusion was a very real accomplishment.
