Space travel revolution?

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Gov. Robert Bentley was in Huntsville Friday to unveil a "fusion power generator" developed by the University of Alabama in Huntsville that could revolutionize space travel. The ceremony at Redstone Arsenal was to announce the $300,000 grant from the Alabama Innovation Fund and to unveil the device, called Charger 1. Officials say the device will be instrumental in advancing propulsion technology and maintaining Alabama's status as one of the leading states in the nation in aerospace and propulsion research.
