This is more than double what was achieved in similar tests in 1997. It’s not a huge power output – just enough to boil about 60 kettles of water – but this result validates the design choices made for a single reactor. The largest merger to date is under construction in France. “Jet experiments have brought us closer to the power of nuclear fusion,” said Dr. Joe Milnes, chief operating officer of the reactor laboratory. “We’ve shown that we can create a little star inside our devices and hold it there for five seconds and achieve high performance, which really takes us to a new world.”
