The '''Huemul Project''' ({{lang-es|Proyecto Huemul}}) was a secret project proposed by the [[Germany|German]] scientist of [[Austria]]n origin [[Ronald Richter]] to the government of [[Argentina]] during the first [[President of Argentina|presidency]] of [[Juan Perón|Juan Domingo Perón]].

In 1948, Richter convinced Perón that he could produce [[nuclear fusion]] energy before any other country based in a [[lithium]]-[[deuterium]] nuclear reaction.

In 1948, Richter convinced Perón that he could produce [[nuclear fusion]] energy before any other country based in a [[lithium]]-[[deuterium]] nuclear reaction and deliver it in milk-bottle type/size containers.
   
 
The present state of the art in fusion research is for example, the [[United States dollar|$]]12 billion [[ITER]] multinational project, which uses a [[tokamak]]-like configuration to reach and maintain the high temperatures and plasma densities needed for fusion ([[Lawson criterion]], 1957). The initial temperatures achieved by Richter's device were orders of magnitude lower, and too low for producing fusion events at a rate high enough to obtain higher temperatures.

During [[World War II]] German scientists under [[Walter Gerlach]] and [[Kurt Diebner]] carried out experiments to explore the possibility of inducing [[thermonuclear|thermonuclear reactions]] in [[deuterium]] using high explosive-driven convergent shock waves, following [[Karl Gottfried Guderley]]'s famous convergent [[shock wave]] solution. At the same time Richter proposed in a memorandum to German government officials the induction of nuclear fusion through shock waves by high-velocity particles shot in to a highly compressed deuterium [[plasma (physics)|plasma]] contained in an ordinary [[uranium]] vessel. The proposal was not carried through.<ref>See [[Rainer Karlsch]], ''[[Hitler's Bomb]]'' (DVA, Germany, 2005)</ref>

This is a legitimate edit, text was extensively discussed several years ago. A vandal also edited out the citation and reference relevant to the statement. I will have to find it and reintroduce it. You can also inspect the history of extended protection periods. J.-C. Lerman (jclerman@gmail.com)
