Nuclear fusion's potential for clean, limitless energy sounds like sci-fi, but it's slowly becoming reality.
Ignition—when fusion produces more energy than it consumes—is a "significant step closer to the possibility of zero-carbon abundant fusion energy."
Magnetic fields tripled the energy output of a fusion experiment at the National Ignition Facility, reports a new study.
“This is the first burning plasma that we've ever created on the planet, so it's pretty amazing.”
Scientists working in a subterranean lab in China have accomplished a key reaction that sheds light on mysteries of the first stars in the universe.
The find makes China the third country to discover a new mineral on the Moon, and the country says it's analyzed the soil for rare helium-3.
Helium-3, a potential source of limitless clean energy, may be ten times more common on our planet than previously thought, reports a new study.
Scientists extracted a maximum yield of 170 kilojoules from a two-millimeter capsule of thermonuclear fuel.
China recently reached a milestone with an “artificial sun,” but it's a lot more exciting and less terrifying than the internet thinks.
Scientists working with superconducting magnets have made a breakthrough that paves the way for carbon-free power.
A recent experiment at the National Ignition Facility produced 1.3 megajoules of nuclear fusion energy, twice as much as expected.
The first module of the Central Solenoid is driving across the US under cover of night to be shipped to France to eventually attempt nuclear fusion.
