“Amateur Fusion” makes the Wall Street Journal

After months in the making, this morning’s Wall Street Journal offers a front page story featuring the "amateur fusion" community hosted here at fusor.net:

Many of these hobbyists call themselves "fusioneers," and have formed a loosely knit community that numbers more than 100 world-wide. Getting into their elite "Neutron Club" requires building a tabletop reactor that successfully fuses hydrogen isotopes and glows like a miniature star. Only 42 have qualified; some have T-shirts that read "Fusion — been there…done that."
