Advances Are Made Into Nuclear Fusion As An Alternative Energy Source

ABINGDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 22: The MASCOT remote arms are seen inside the training mock-up of the Joint European Torus (JET) at the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), where the JET plasma physics experiment is based, on September 22, 2022 in Abingdon, England. In February 2022, scientists at the centre announced that they had generated the highest sustained energy pulse ever created by fusing together atoms, more than doubling their own record set in 1997. The UK Atomic Energy Authority hosts JET, but its scientific programme is run by a European collaboration named "EUROfusion" . ITER, the successor to JET, is currently being built in France, with the first plasma scheduled for December 2025. Scientists have strived to harness nuclear fusion as an alternative energy source for decades but recent developments at JET suggest that a breakthrough is edging closer. Research teams are already carrying out stress tests on materials to work out how to construct a nuclear fusion power plant, with Professor Chris Llewellyn Smith, director of energy research at Oxford University, stating that "with enough money we could probably build a fusion reactor now but it would not be economical. The challenge is to make it reliable and competitive." (Photo by Leon Neal/Getty Images)
