I don't drop into this sub too often because my interest is mostly in fusion as a power source, and questions on the topic typically come up about every month or so. By the time I see them, questions on the topic have almost always been closed, often as "opinion based", and I can't answer them.
The problem is that the questions are perfectly fine. Consider the latest example, which asks if there are accident scenarios in fusion similar to Chernobyl and Fukushima. This was closed as "opinion based", apparently only moments after it was posted.
The question, as asked, does not ask for an opinion. It is asking a yes or no question. Are there accident scenarios similar to these examples? There either are or there aren't.
The issue of fusion power safety is the topic of hundreds of reports and has well-known fact-based answers. In particular, the possibility of tritium release is a concern that is going to require confinement systems similar to those used on large fission plants - particularly, those on the CANDU fleet. That is the answer, and it is not opinion based.
Is there something I'm missing here, a historical precedent?
