Working on a hybrid fusion-fission reactor, perhaps a subcritical fission reactor with neutrons supplied by the fusion component?

New fusion propulsion design that makes power and propulsion at the same time, but requires He3? If nothing else, they want to demo a brayton cycle turbine power setup on ISS.

Using an ion beam on a fixed target, outputting neutrons. I wonder if the core setup could be used for an ADSR, or any other neutron spallation target need?

Quarks fuse to release energy | Nature
Quark fusion pretty powerful, but needs heavy baryons and goes poof quick so not practical on it's own. But, with a 138MeV bandgap, could this be a used for a quark laser (similar to a nucleon laser)?

A fusion-fission implementation of the hybrid molten salt reactor (HMSR)
Uh, so this appears to be a single fluid fuel salt MSR (subcritical?) paired with a fusion reactor using the MSR fuel salt as a fertile blanket salt. So in some ways similar to an ADSR.

So, using lasers to fuse deuterium over a pusher plate/bell nozzle,which is lined with uranium to heat up from neutron capture, which heats coolant, which runs to a turbogenerator, which powers the laser. So sorta pulse like, sorta orion-lite? It's not your typical fusion-fission hybrid setup. The implication is that this could be used as a nuclear jet engine the atmosphere (ejector ramjet entrainment maybe)?!?

The Ghost Ship | Project Icarus Workshop Update #3/4 | Icarus Interstellar
Like a car engine that runs off it's own supercharger (which makes starting a bit of an issue...), this starship propulsion concept uses waste neutron pulses from the pulsed fusion reaction to neutron pump a nuclear pumped laser which fires for the next ICF fusion pulse.

Fission-free Fusion Explosion by Chemical First Stage
Physicist seems to have found a way to achieve a fusion/hydrogen bomb with basically no fallout (a bang, x-rays, and gamma rays). Using a boron laced HMX chemical explosive sphere imploding on a liquid deuterium-tritium core, you can theoretically achieve 1000x gain over the conventional explosive (assuming a 30cm sphere yielding a 25 ton explosion. Not big on the atomic bomb scale in terms of gain factor or raw explosive power, but the no fallout part is kinda attractive from certain applications, such as Project Orion or Medusa class space propulsion.

Windows Metro Style Apps Developer Downloads
Currently, virtualized installations only run properly on Hyper-V and VMware Workstation 8 only (Possibly VMware Fusion 4). Even ESXi 5 is borked. Something to do with unknown chipset ID and ACPI 2.0 tables. Also, since Windows 8 contains it's own Hyper-V instance, you probably need a 64bit hardware host with hypervisor CPU pass through capability for chained hypervisors, otherwise it might croak on Ring 0 access issues. Naturally Workstation 8/Fusion 4 just went gold, so no freebie beta to work with...

Levitating Magnet May Yield New Approach To Clean Energy
I'm a little stumped as to how the floating magnet is supposed to control things when it is floating via a rather large externally applied magnetic field. I guess there must be some field orientation advantage compared to simply applying a larger field from outside. I wonder if this could be applied to SMES or other cryogenic systems to remove the supports that contribute to heat leakage?
