Slashdot Fusion Roundup Post

It's probably worth mentioning that Slashdot has a good roundup post on recent fusion research activities, including another from PhysOrg on neutron release during lightning activity. (You may recall I ran a piece about Duke University researchers detecting gamma rays during or preceding lightning strikes.) The PhysOrg piece makes the claim that fusion on a very small scale is occurring during lightning strikes, possibly opening another avenue for research into that energy source.
