On Medium Science, Brian Bergstein looks at the development of the fusion reactor, initially something out of science fiction and now nothing more than a hardware problem that needs to be figured out. Fascinating look at the current state of affairs.

But it’s not just MIT. At least 10 other startups also are trying new approaches to fusion power. All of them contend that it’s no longer a tantalizingly tricky science experiment, and is becoming a matter of engineering. If even just one of these ventures can pull it off, the energy source of the future is closer than it seems.
