Fusion takes a big step forward.

New hydrogen fusion design gets fired up and they generated a "pinch" on their second shot.  SWEET!  Because a pinch is when they get a fusion event.

The baby is born!  After seven years of theoretical work and raising money, five months of design, five months of construction and assembly, and a week of testing, LPP now has a functioning dense plasma focus, Focus-Fusion-1. The first shot, using helium as the fill gas, was achieved at 5:29 PM today, Oct.15, and the first pinch was achieved at 6:04 PM on the second shot. The fact that a pinch was achieved so soon was evidence of the soundness of the design.

Mr. Fusion here we come.
