One may want to add some common sense upon a review of the ‘great smoky dragon’ of quantum physics.
Everything we observe, touch, feel, hear, experience, is a function of light - the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter - waves of the motion of light electrically conditioned and patterned manifesting though the appearance of space and time along the radius of curvature, the quantity c (light), in e=mc2.
One may then find far simpler, less destructive means of harnessing nuclear energies, i.e., extracting energy from the vacuum of zero point.
Understandably, the quantity C may boggle the mind when viewed from a ‘flatland’, narrow, unintegrated point of view, creating monstrous and erroneous interpretations (theories) of perfectly good math, such as dark energy, dark matter, black holes, wormholes, hundred million degree fluid key to fusion, and the like. (see back to fundamentals at bottom of post)
In the 1970s, the American physicist John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008) metaphorically compared the fundamental indefiniteness of quantum mechanical phenomena with a "great smoky dragon": One can see the tail, that is the source of the particles, and the head, which are the measurement results. But in between the whole body is covered in smoke. Image courtesy Xiao-song Ma. For a larger version of this image please go here.
Since the 17th century, science was intrigued by the nature of light. Isaac Newton was certain that it consists of a stream of particles. His contemporary Christiaan Huygens, however, argued that light is a wave. Modern quantum physics says that both were right. Light can be observed both as particles and as waves - depending which characteristic is measured in an experiment, it presents itself more as one or the other.
This so-called wave-particle dualism is one of the foundational principles of quantum physics. This questions our common sense: can one and the same indeed be of two contradictory natures at the same time? ...more
Pitting one natural law against another, i.e., such as bombing, blasting clubbing, disintegrating, continued application of the 700 year old 'rocket' propulsion concept, is such a labor intensive, wasteful, inefficient, primitive and destructive waste of time.
Rather than fighting the natural laws, it behooves us to begin to understand them and make use of their fundamental properties and relationships which are still missing in the standard model - namely the natural laws are not absolute, but relative. That is the size and shape of the curve of one law is dependent upon the value and position of the others.
Contemporary experiments mired in narrow, tangent points of view of light struggle on:

A more refined view of E=MC2 discloses Light (C) as The Radius of Curvature of All Natural Law, equating to the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter
meaning if a differential of energy equal to this quantity exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended. If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point.
The far more fundamental and simpler definitions of space time mass matter energy gravity become mandatory:
- The Quantity C: Possessing a Significance Far Greater than Attributed
- Gravity – As Viewed Through the Radius (VC)
- Space as Observed through the Curve of Radius Light
- Matter and Mass – Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass
- Beyond A Uni-Dimensional Perception of TIME
- The Nonlinearity of Physical Law
