Controlled Fusion Research :: An Application of the Physics of High Temperature Plasmas. Offprint from: Reviews of Modern Physics, vol. 28, No. 3, pp. 338-362, July, 1956. Orange printed wrappers. "In his widely-read Reviews of Modem Physics article of 1956, Richard Post underlined the importance of fusion research to the human condition: "It appears that the continued growth of civilization as we know it will demand the achievement of practical fusion power within a period substantially less than one hundred years." He ended the article with an especially optimistic prediction regarding fusion's chances of success: "It is the firm belief of many of the physicists actively engaged in controlled fusion research in this country that all of the scientific and technological problems of controlled fusion will be mastered—perhaps in the next few years." :: web source. 2.
