Tell me anything you can that will show where the current state of research on fusion reactors stands.

Dear Ms. H I do not deal with the fusion area myself, and have dealt mainly with fission reactors, but you can get some good information on fusion reactors, research, etc. from the American Nuclear Society in LaGrange Park, IL. You can contact the ANS Headquarters and pose your question to the technical division (re: Fusion Energy Division) that deals with the fusion area.

Contact data on ANS is:
General Phone Number: 708-352-6611
Fax #: 708-352-0499
Web site:

If you contact ANS, tell them I referred you to them. I have been a member since 1978.
