You've probably heard about the promise of nuclear fusion before… many times. But when MIT is involved, it's best to listen up. The university has teamed up with Commonwealth Fusion Systems, and they believe that clean, limitless power could be just around the corner. Thanks to the development of a ...
As a nuclear fusion reactor tries to replicate the process of the sun on a much smaller scale, these magnets are crucial to holding the plasma in place to prevent it from coming into contact with the surrounding chamber, as well as reducing the amount of energy needed to be put into the reactor. Compared ...
