A nuclear fusion reactor developed by researchers at the Seoul National University (SNU) in South Korea reached temperatures in excess of 100 million degrees Celsius, taking us a step closer to nuclear fusion energy, New Scientist reported.

Nuclear fusion is a promising method of power generation since massive amounts of energy is released when two nuclei with low atomic weights are combined. The most significant advantage of nuclear fusion is that the end product of the process is not radioactive and therefore does not require containment measures of nuclear fission technology.
