Ball Lightning and Nuclear Fusion Reactor

Ball Lightning could be the same or at least a very similar phenomenon to nuclear fusion in the stars. The author has observed a Ball Lightning event and presented a    new theory of its formation. On the basis of this theory he has proposed a new fusion experiment (incorporated in an EU patent). The realisation of the fusion's energy and its potential to produce many hundred times more energy than today's nuclear reactors, is a key-question for the survival of humanity
