I won't pretend to be a nuclear fusion expert, but what I do know is that it's been talked about for over a century, and worked on for the past 70 years.
In theory, nuclear fusion could be the best source of energy. Entirely sustainable, unlimited, and clean make it the perfect combination.
But it's pretty darn complicated to do. The fusion of two atoms is no walk in the park.
Yet for the first time ever, they were able to get more energy out of the reaction than what they put in.
This is a hugely optimistic sign that this technology could be a feasible alternative energy, ending years of heated debate on whether or not this is realistic.
Up next? Reviews, recreation, and figuring out how to make it widespread and not require dozens of giant lazers (yeah, there's still a lot to figure out).
