One science podcast I was listening to was citing China as being on track to produce solar panels (they have all our - Australia's best solar technology now) for same price per kilowatt hour as coal. If they can do this the argument is over and the need for fusion will be gone.

This is excellent news but solar is not a perfect replacement because you can't generated solar energy at night.


According to chemists, 1hr per day solar power, if stored somehow, fulfills human needs for that day, globally. Apparently storage is the new chemistry assignment. Having nano technology to collect solar is already with us.

This radio interview highlights how vast a subject of interest chemistry is in our futures.
