Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works has announced that they've developed a clean nuclear fusion reactor about the size of a jet engine. In about 10 years, they believe that a unit the size of standard shipping container could provide enough power for 80,000 homes (approx 100MW). Unlike today's nuclear power plants which utilize a nuclear fission reaction in the generation of power, nuclear fusion doesn't produce all the radioactive waste. This is potentially HUGE for energy generation in the future!
