According to NBC News, experts seem to think that we are so close to achieving fusion that by the year 2030 there will be commercially available reactors providing large amounts of energy, in part thanks to experiments such as ITER. More power may be handy to do stuff like this on a global scale.
Fusion has powered the sun for billions of years. Yet despite decades of effort, scientists and engineers have been unable to generate sustained nuclear fusion here on Earth. In fact, it’s long been joked that fusion is 50 years away, and will always be.
But now it looks as if the long wait for commercial fusion power may be coming to an end — and sooner than in half a century.
