Why don't we use pyramids to develop nuclear fusion power as it has outer space type atmosphere?

Asked Jan 05, 2013
It's a fascinating theory but the road from theory to a working model is most often a long and winding road that requires a lot of economic support. It would be a very interesting area of study for a young person shopping for a career.

pyramids, what help would they be?? for fusion you need to meet the lawson criterion by giving your nuclei high enough energies to pass the electrostatic coulomb barrier then come in range of strong force to fuse. space like vacuum is quite irrelevant. particles are given high energy using high temp and pressure, this could be done with magnetically confined gas being compressed or pulses of laser light onto a tiny deuterium sphere making it implode to create the energies required. good luck to all who work in the field.
