New exhaust system brings fusion energy one step closer

Researchers attempting to commercialise nuclear fusion believe they could have solved one of the most pressing problems in generating the energy that powers the stars; how to exhaust gas at temperatures hotter than our sun. Fusion is the nuclear reaction permanently taking place in the sun, but to reproduce it on earth requires creating a hot gas known as plasma ten times hotter than the sun, at 100 million degrees Celsius. Now researchers trying to devise a smaller, cheaper fusion reactor say they are just months away from testing a plasma exhaust system that can cope with extreme temperatures akin to those faced by a spacecraft re-entering the atmosphere.
