The JET nuclear fusion project spells an exciting future
The breakthrough in nuclear fusion research last year at the Joint European Torus (JET), an experimental fusion reactor in Oxfordshire, England, is more than a subtle assurance that limitless, clean, and safe energy is closer than we think.
"As pressures mount to address the effects of climate change through de-carbonizing energy production, this success is a major step forward on fusion’s roadmap as a safe, efficient, low-carbon means of tackling the global energy crisis," Dr. Joe Milnes, Head of JET Operations, UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), told IE.
