The fundamental principles of hydrogen fusion make this process seem inevitable as a method of commercial power production. It is a clean power process, producing no harmful byproduct, using an inexhaustible supply of fuel, and hydrogen fusion is the source of all energy release in the larger universe, illumining countless galaxies with starlight. On a terrestrial, non-universal scale, hydrogen fusion can be accomplished on a table-top using a number of elementary procedures.
