Apart from containing the odd typo ("Only 10 kilograms of helium are available on earth" should be "helium 3"), this article about a pie-in-the-sky source of energy is strong support for the notion that there are way too many scientists in the world.
In summary, a "scientist" thinks he should be funded to develop a reactor which uses a fuel which is not available in useful amounts unless we develop substantial space technology for processing 100's of millions of tons of moon rock. He claims the people who are refusing to fund him are lacking vision. I think they are lacking credulity.
