That is interesting.
This is a discussion on fusion in a jar within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_537208.html That is interesting....
I remember this is Popular Science a while back (a year or two ago, I think). If I recall, it couldn't be duplicated.
I don't buy it. Sound waves can generate some massive heat, but that much? I think they jumped the gun on that one.
ITSA Socket Library!
I don't know about this particular article, but there's a lot of validity to the experiments with nuclear fusion and stuff. we already have a fusion reactor called tokamak, and scientists are trying to develop engines which run off of plasma to get to mars in three months instead of six. fusion and plasma are so hot that no substance can touch it, but if magnets are used properly the heat never touches the surface of the vessel.
