Fusion Power Breakthrough: Clean, Limitless Power. What you need to know.

Takamak reactor at JET facility in Oxfordshire makes a major advance in the field of fusion power.


A fusion power experiment last week in Oxfordshire, England at the Joint European Torus (JET) facility marked a breakthrough in the quest for fusion power. See the episode cover art for a picture of the white hot plasma which was generated. The results from JET will be analyzed and used to refine the design of a much larger Takamak reactor in Cadarache, France, with a view to eventual commercial production of fusion based electricity.
