New hope for ultimate clean energy: fusion power

( -- Imagine if you could generate electricity using nuclear power that emitted no radioactivity: it would be the answer to the world's dream of finding a clean, sustainable energy source.

Peering inside an artificial sun

( -- After more than five decades of research, a major milestone toward the harnessing of fusion power is expected within the next year or two. This milestone, known as "fusion ignition," should take place at ...

Scientists propose solution to long-puzzling fusion problem

The paradox startled scientists at the U.S Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) more than a dozen years ago. The more heat they beamed into a spherical tokamak, a magnetic facility designed ...
