New nuclear fusion device

Nuclear fusion is in the fore-front of high technology.
It will enable the human race to generate more than enough energy without using fossil fuel
However, it is very difficult to control such fusion.
As a result, for several decades, scientists always say that we, the human race, are 25 years away from the era when we are able to control nuclear fusion.
In the past, the competition in the race to achieve controlled nuclear fusion was between the US and the Soviet Union, but now it is between the US and China as China has become the second largest investor in that technology.
Now the US has 28 large nuclear fusion test facilities, China has 16 while Russia has only 5.

According to Chinese media, China is completing its newest large nuclear fusion test device KTX and will soon put it into experimental operation for fine tuning.
It is a Torus Experiment device similar to US “Naional Spherical Ring Experiment Device” with magnetic confinement fusion technology. KTX is China’s newest achievement in nuclear fusion similar to above-mentioned advanced device that the US put into operation in 1999.
China’s success in building its KTX indicates that China has greatly reduced the gap between the US and China in that top technology.

U.S. Army mega aircraft – a hybrid of plane, helicopter, hovercraft and airship

Designed by British design company Hybrid Air Vehicles for the U.S. military, this massive piece of next-gen tech can travel through the air at nearly 100 miles per hour. At 302 feet, the Airlander 10 is bigger than a Boeing 747 and its new big brother in development will be bigger than a football field.
Airlander 10 can carry 10 tons of equipment and the company says these uber-blimbs will be able to circumnavigate the globe twice in one trip without landing.
Designed to meet military standards, Airlander works in extreme weather conditions and doesn’t need a prepared landing zone.
In fact, it can land on challenging surfaces like water, sand, snow and ice – making it an excellent option for delivering cargo to remote locations in tough conditions.
With humans on board, it can stay aloft for about five days, but when it is unmanned it can stay aloft for weeks on end.
