Lev Artsimovich Quote
There can be no doubt that our descendants will learn to exploit the energy of fusion for peaceful purposes even before its use becomes necessary for the preservation of human civilization.
as quoted by E.E. Kintner at the Artsimovich Memorial Session of the Seventh International Conference on Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion Research, Conference proceedings, Volume 1, Nuclear fusion. International Atomic Energy Agency. 1978.
