This is an old presentation from the 1970s or 1980s and is very outdated, but historically interesting.
Derek Sutherland exclaims that the energy crisis is over and explores how nuclear fusion can revolutionize energy production. Derek extols the many virtues of fusion and how with research and public support it can become reality. Derek Sutherland is a graduate research associate at the University of Washington (UW), and is also the CEO of … Read more
At the Energy Department’s Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, scientists are trying to accomplish what was once considered the realm of science fiction: create a star on Earth. The National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) is a magnetic fusion device that is used to study the physics principles of spherically shaped plasmas — hot ionized gases in … Read more
