  • The promise of endless clean energy: High hopes for nuclear fusion

    Nuclear fusion has long been the stuff of science fiction. The theory is straightforward: smash two atomic nuclei together to obtain a single, heavier one. The process has the advantage of not creating any radioactive waste or greenhouse gases. Yet it has long been a pipe dream due to insurmountable technical challenges. However, a recent series of discoveries and technological advances have triggered a wave of optimism among both scientists and investors.
