Nuclear Fusion

UCSD Physics Dept Tom Murphy Ah, fusion. Long promised, both on Do the Math and in real life, fusion is regarded as the ultimate power source—the holy grail—the “arrival” of the human species. Talk of fusion conjures visions of green fields and rainbows and bunny rabbits…and a unicorn too, I hear. But I strike too … Read moreNuclear Fusion

How China hopes to solve nuclear waste issue with hybrid fusion-fission reactor at top secret facility

South China Morning Post Stephen Chen 17 July, 2015 China’s proposed hybrid nuclear fusion-fission reactor could potentially burn nuclear waste. Photo: AFP China will build a new hybrid reactor that can burn nuclear waste via a combined fusion-fission method by 2030. This could give a potentially dramatic boost to China’s attempt to switch to more … Read moreHow China hopes to solve nuclear waste issue with hybrid fusion-fission reactor at top secret facility
