Nuclear fusion: energy of the future ?

Nuclear fusion - stars’ nuclear fire - could provide plentiful energy without inflaming climate change. On paper, nuclear fusion is an energy dream: abundant, with no meltdowns, planet-baking carbon emissions, or long-lived radioactive waste. Problem: igniting fusion within a magnetically confined plasma requires temperatures of 150 million degrees Celsius, 10 times hotter than our sun’s core. Click on the image below - device called a tokamak - for an infographic from National Geographic explaining the challenges of a giant experiment to test this concept, the ITER Projetc in southern France.
