NVC: Vets Tribute and Nuclear Fusion at UUCF

On November 11th, WASH NVC will partner with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax. The event will start at 12:45PM (not the normal 2PM) for the Science, Reason, Religion program at UUCF. This is a new partnership where WASH NVC and UUCF that will allow our communities to support each other on our common points of agreement. The topic for this Science, Reason, & Religion discussion will very much be science. Bob Commisso, employee at Naval Research Labs and past chair of the IEEE Plasma Science committee will be presenting on Nuclear Fusion, the status of fusion research, and the importance of sustainable energy. (Bob is not speaking in his official NRL capacity.) Following the SR&R presentation, WASH will move to a separate room to conduct a short tribute to the troops for Veterans Day and to continue WASH-specific activities. We will end at 3PM.

November 11 - Bob Commisso “Nuclear Fusion: Another Option” Relatively inexpensive, easily available electrical energy might be the single most important enabler of the evolution of civilization. What’s fusion and why does this relate to our 7th Principle? We’ll review global fusion research, examining fusion’s status and compare with fission power. We’ll also discuss fission-fusion hybrids.
