Facts do not exist. Status exists.

We have ignition! An analysis has confirmed that an experiment conducted in 2021 created a fusion reaction energetic enough to be self-sustaining, which brings it one step closer to being useful as a source of energy. The fusion ignition took place on 8 August 2021 at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s National Ignition Facility (NIF) in California, but NIF researchers haven’t been able to reproduce this landmark achievement since. They have spent the past year analysing the experimental conditions that got them to ignition to determine how to achieve it again.
Remember the earlier cold fusion experiments by real scientists in Utah, who weren’t funded by Deepstate? They had ‘ignition’, a self-sustaining reaction in a small easy-to-build reactor. They are PSEUDOSCIENTISTS because they don’t have STATUS.
Now the Deep Deepstate Livermore outfit has achieved one possible ‘ignition’ in their vast hard-to-build magnetic hot fusion reactor. They were unable to make it happen again. (Remember “the replication crisis”?) They are SCIENTISTS because they have STATUS.
