Sad news today, nuclear scientist and space pioneer Robert Bussard has passed away. Dr Bussard invented the interstellar ramjet which was named after him. Before his death he was working on advanced fusion reactors which promised to provide limitless energy. His bio can be found here and do have a look at his fusion lecture. Hopefully others can carry on the work of this remarkable man.
