Would it be possible to combine two or more methods for proposed fusion reactions to accomplish fusion? Why not use higher internal pressures to increase the chance of a reaction? Have other reactions been tried? e.g. Proton-Proton rather than D-T.


in hundreds of millons of years, the sun probably will NOT have burned out :)


Did you get dropped on your head when you were younger Bob Schiewe?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun#Life_cycle -- I suggest you read this summary of the sun's lifecycle. There are other astronomical sources which back the data presented here. The sun, only about 4.5 billion years old, is only half-way through its lifespan as a main-sequence star. It will turn into a red giant in another 4 to 5 billion years. That's 1.5 or so orders of magnitude difference from "hundreds of millions" of years.

So, to answer your question, I don't think Bob was dropped on his head. On the contrary; unlike you, he seems to actually have one.
