Long relegated to the trash heap of utopic clean energy technologies in the realm of harvesting energy from black holes , nuclear fusion is suddenly making a big comeback–and for good reason. Fusion is not only ultra-powerful, but it is also the cleanest and virtually limitless energy source known to man. In fact, nuclear fusion is pretty much our perfect energy source that is not only likely to play an outsized role in the shift from ‘dirty’ fossil fuels to clean energy but also power the conquest of our Final Frontier : Space. Fusion energy has the potential to produce the safest energy with no greenhouse gases and no long-lived radioactive wastes. Yet, somehow, practical nuclear fusion energy on our planet has remained a far off mirage. But finally, this elusive energy source could be closer to becoming an everyday reality than we imagine. Nuclear fission is already our […]
