Limitless nuclear fusion energy is one step closer thanks to burning plasma experiment

Posted by in categories: nuclear energy, physics

We could be a step closer to the commercially viable production of limitless nuclear fusion energy.

A group of nuclear fusion researchers at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) achieved self-heating “burning plasma” for the first time ever in January, bringing commercially viable nuclear fusion one step closer.

Now, a new analysis of the plasma, published in a paper in the journal Nature Physics, reveals surprising new details that could help the scientific community finally achieve the holy grail of nuclear fusion — net energy production.

Nuclear fusion, which mimics the energy-generating method of the Sun and the stars, has the potential to provide practically limitless clean energy.
