Engineers are shipping the world’s most powerful magnet to the construction site of the world’s largest experimental fusion reactor called ITER in France. The magnet will be constructed from six modules, each containing 43 kilometres of coiled niobium-tin superconductors. Once these coils are in place, they will be sealed withContinue Reading

fusion reaction

British engineers are preparing to test the fuel mix that could one day power the largest nuclear fusion experiment in the world. Researchers at the Joint European Torus (JET), a fusion reactor at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy in Oxfordshire, UK, began conducting fusion tests involving tritium, a radioactiveContinue Reading

Nuclear Fusion

Today, engineers started construction of the world’s largest nuclear fusion project in southern France with operations planned to begin in late 2025. The project, called ITER, is an international collaborative effort between 35 countries with enormous ambitions: prove the feasibility of fusion energy with a gigantic magnetic device called aContinue Reading
