Summary
  • Mention Nuclear Fusion-the joining of two light atoms to form a heavier one-and most people think of bombs. But fusion has other uses, too. Governments all over the world are spending billions of dollars to harness the process for peaceful purposes. If they succeed, there'll never be another war over energy. One bathtub half-filled with seawater, for example, would yield the electrical energy of 40 train cars of coal
  • So everyone wants nuclear fusion. And governments think they can get it. But the main question is: what is the best way to control it? And first of all: what is it? This book explains the ways scientists have approached and developed fusion (including the strange case of cold fusion) and discusses its advantages over other forms of energy production
  • Author Neal Singer covers the ITER project in France, expected to corral a plasma six times hotter than the sun, and the National Ignition Facility in California, where 192 gigantic lasers are focused on a target the size of a BB. And he takes us inside an encapsulated space at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Here scientists test the Z Machine, a pulsed power structure that uses electricity and magnetism to produce nuclear fusion. Although much fusion research has focused on the development of nuclear weaponry, the Z Machine may also help scientists find a way to harness fusion in order to provide clean, renewable energy to the world's growing population.
