What's the Difference?

Perhaps some overnight flurries will make for a white walk in the dark tomorrow morning, en route to the tunneled train. Snow or not, the lengthy vehicle will achieve kinetic motion through some invisible infusion of electric current, piped in from afar, though how afar I’m not certain of. Likely not too afar, as metro Boston likely consumes a couple of plants’ worth itself.

This man’s career has been devoted to figuring out a new way. Making real something so abstract to us laypeople as to be absurd, unimaginable. As mentioned in a previous post, it involves heating an isotope none of us have ever heard of (deuterium) to 170,000,000 degrees celsius, and then performing some additional wizardry and so on, eventually heating something of a teakettle.

To bring it down to earth (realizing now that this is in part what fuels the Sun [nuclear fission]), he quoted one of the more popular 21st century philosophers – Homer Simpson – who proclaimed, “Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?” Note the shared taurus shape between aforementioned confection and above diagram.

White dark Friday morning.
