Scientists have confirmed that the experimental machine is operating with ‘unprecedented accuracy’.
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.

Germany’s Wendelstein 7-X (W 7-X) stellerator is one of several projects around the world aiming to make the dream of nuclear fusion energy a reality. Following initial operations back in February, the scientists behind the reactor have now reported that it has managed to exceed expectations.
