As steam vents into the deep ocean, it gives off bright white light and X-rays. As it turns regular water into He and O. There is no chemical source of X-rays, visible light or Helium. So we are doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
So every scientist on Earth realises we are doing nuclear fusion. But not one will actively research it – as it is free, carbon zero massive energy.
Basically limitless free power. But academics get money from uranium nuclear fission, and are terrified of anything which destroys uranium nuclear power.
Access to simple and free nuclear fusion does just that! The world has just changed, and nobody needs burn Fossil Fuels anymore. And nobody wants enriched uranium.
