Can man create a sun?

Tune into the latest GPS special, ‘Moonshots,’ on CNN this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.

The sun is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit and4.6 billion years old. So what if we could somehow bring this blazing ball of energy down to Earth to power our world?

Fareed hears from Ned Sauthoff, who is leading the U.S. contribution to the 35-nation ITER project that is hoping to pull off one of the most audacious feats of physics ever witnessed: creating a star.

    I'm really a lovable guy. Children adore me...I let children in the neighborhood play behind my shop on Saturday's. Any minute now they will be here. "Hi Mr. Philip" they say. Come and play Hot Potato with us?
    When I tint the glass in old age homes that ugly people dump their aged grandparents in old folks flock around me. An old woman walked up to me on one job and put her cold boney hands on my face and just stood there smiling in my eyes...not saying a word but conveying much warmth. Interns literally had to drag her away from me. I really am an attractive man in real life. Not vanity/good looking. Attractive, rather.
    annnnd I forgot where I was going with this. sheesh

        Omg you are dumb. $50 bucks worth of toys and 10 $5 bills is what I used my $100 for. What charity did you give? $10 bucks to Vampires without Borders so that you could feel good about yourself without actually doing anything yourself? Prolly.

    Statistics regarding Pentagon spending are NOT conspiracy theories", @Chrussty. The Pentagon does in fact rob our national treasury social security and spend "borrowed" funds on themselves. Not on 10 thousand dollar ashtrays as the cover story goes. ON THEMSELVES in th form of lavish milary eni tlements. THIS is why thePentagon told Obama that th US Miliary cannot defeat "ISIL". They simply cannot afford to, and Obama knows it and like it that way.

    My total spending on charity this year stands at $4,420 as of today and I have receipts to prove it. That's nearly 6% of my net income. And that's NOT counting my time which is worth over $100 per hour.

    My my Philip, it appears you are in full attack mode today. My comment was not directed at you, not specifically anyway, yet you choose to attack anything you perceive as a threat. I'm really beginning to believe this is the way you get your rocks. I can't image how good a person you would be if you could display a smidgen of the decency shown by chrissy and banasy. Hopefully one day those three ghosts can show you the path like they did with Scrooge.

    @ Philip
    You are the only one here who seems to feel the need to revert to name calling and you accuse "me" of being 12 ? Here's your pot and kettle folks.
    And as far as chrissy and banasy, it appears to me they are just defending themselves against unwarranted accusations by you. And doing a fine job of it, I might add.

        Oh, you missed the part where BC said "defending themselves against unwarranted accusations by you."

        I'm not surprised you glossed over that. Reading comprehension is not your strong suit.

        If you do not want to be called an ignorant ass, I suggest you stop acting like one.

      I didn't accuse "you" of anything when I said 12 years old. I was making fun of you for using Scooge as a reference as a 12 year old would. Not having learned any better references.

    You biatches have ACCUSED ME of lying about my charitable deeds. All I've accused you of is being dumber than boxes of rocks. Because you are.
    Pick a hot topic and debate me and I will show you exactly how stupid you are.
    Come on, Bobscotch. Pick a news topic we disagree on and let's debate.
    @Banazi. TOPIC: Raype. I say openly gay priests caught with younger males are statutory rapists. Statutory raype comes with a 20 year prison sentence. A just reward. What do you say openly gay priests caught with younger males are guilty of? And what is the punishment for that?

      I didn't say one word about your charitable works. Please repost where I did, otherwise, be quiet.

      If priests are found guilty of rape, they should be improsoned for the maximum amount of time that sentence holds for the state they're convicted in.

      This, too, was settled years ago, and why you are repeating this yet again is beyond me.
