correct once the Hydrogen isn't in abundance to keep the reaction going no more fusion will take place > no more (new) energy.

No that wouldn't and yes.

A plasma is simply ionized matter. At a certain temperature, the atoms lose their electrons and become ionized (positively charged) - these charged atoms are contained by a positive magnetic field. The neutrons can escape, hitting the tokamak.

That's all fine and well, but at this point we don't really need it. Maybe for better space travel or something. Thorium is a proven technology and an awesome replacement for plutonium. I think India (or china) is actually working on the world's first thorium reactor that will be put into use making power for the public. Only reason we don't have WAY safer, cheaper, cleaner energy right now via thorium reactors, is because thorium won't go boom, and back when all this was getting going, that's all the gub'ment was interested in.
Bang for the buck

This is going to be a interesting project.

This post is the stupidest thing I have read....

Why on earth did they build computers that took up whole rooms 20-30 years ago, why wouldnt they just make an Ipad. Duh. what a waste right?
