Chris Young of Interesting Engineering writes that we are now one step closer to limitless energy from nuclear fusion.
- Nuclear fusion occurs when two atoms slam together to form a heavier nucleus, releasing vast amounts of energy in the process.
- A Bill Gates- backed startup, Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS), and MIT’s Plasma and Fusion Center have made a major breakthrough in nuclear fusion with their latest magnet, which could pave the way for limitless clean energy.
- The magnet reached 20 tesla while only using 30 watts of energy which is incredibly impressive and efficient for this type of technology.
- Innovators and entrepreneurs, not bureaucrats, are creating the technology that is needed for a cleaner energy future.
