Nuclear Fusion Gets Closer To Reality With This New Reactor

 October 10, 2022  Science

MIT researchers publish promising studies of a new, compact reactor. If it works, fusion could be achieved by the 2030s.

If nuclear fusion was a viable energy source, everything could be electrified. Electricity would be so cheap that projects that seem impossible now could be within our grasp, like commercial space flights, desalinating sea water, or direct air carbon capture. 

Now, researchers from MIT say nuclear fusion — the power source of the sun itself —  could become a reality by 2035, thanks to a new compact reactor called Sparc.
