A future powered by clean, limitless nuclear fusion energy has taken another step forward this week.
Often seen as the Holy Grail of power generation, nuclear fusion is the same process that produces energy in the sun and works by fusing hydrogen nuclei together to create helium.
Unlike nuclear fission which comes with the inherent risk of a meltdown, fusion is much cleaner and safer while the hydrogen fuel used by the process is so abundant that it is practically limitless.
Scientists have been working on building a sustainable nuclear fusion reactor for years and while that goal has yet to be achieved, progress is still being made in several key areas.
