Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Helium3

Both India and China search for lunar helium and with good reason. Helium3, scarce on Earth, is abundant on the Moon. Helium3 and heavy water, so far, offer the most direct rout to high energy fusion. Fusion of course is the clean source of nuclear power, as in the Hydrogen bomb. The giant scale Tokamak International project attempts to utilize Helium as well. (see previous postings)
