I've just signed up to this forum because I'm very interested to see nuclear fusion become reality; and this seems to be the way to follow what's happening.
Sadly, the first paragraph of the article discussing the concept is seriously flawed; and deviates from the most important concept which a newcomer to any scientific topic should be exposed - accuracy.
I guess my comment could be seen as pedantic, nevertheless I find it disappointing - even irritating - when sloppy writing (or sloppy- or nonexistent proof-reading) gives incorrect information, where correct information is intrinsic to an understanding of science.

"Superheat plasma must be created and contained so that two hydrogen atoms can combine to form helium..."
Such a basic error detracts from an otherwise well-presented article.
This is not to denigrate the writer; and I know that we can all make mistakes, but this blooper suggests (correctly or not) that the author of this piece hasn't done his homework. It could even be an error of cut&paste, but a proof-reader would have caught it.
