Harry Hamlin is not a rocket scientist, he is an actor, but unforeseen circumstances in his life cast him in a most unlikely role… as shepherd of a potentially world changing technology that could provide clean, cheap fusion power to the world for millennia. This talk is the story of his strange personal journey into big science and the insight that anyone can affect the future because you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to be a futurist!
