Radioactive dating methods beyond 60000 years

The simplest reaction to achieve on earth is the fusion of deuterium and tritium.

Even renewable energy can be thought of as just a low level spin off of fusion energy (the sun).

Therefore it would be infinitely better if we could somehow tame nuclear fusion as an energy source here on earth.

The problem is that you need a perfect symmetry of implosion to stop the pellet flying apart before ignition can occur and so far these conditions have not been achieved.

The main contender is the Tokamak configuration and the largest experiment so far was JET based at Culham.

There are two methods currently under development to heat and contain a plasma to fusion conditions on earth.

Both promises to lead to ignition and electrical power production.

One of the problems has been Rayleigh instabilities in the ablative sphere enclosure radiating energy away from the implosion.
