Will Nuclear Fusion Energy Arrive in Time to Mitigate Climate Change?

The space-age alternative energy source may be on the verge of a breakthrough.

The third in a series of high-field tokamaks at MIT, C-Mod holds the record for highest volume average plasma pressure in a magnetic confinement device, which is an important metric for fusion performance. MIT/PSFC
