A long but worth it read on Nuclear Fusion and ITER, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor:
A STAR IN A BOTTLE - An audacious plan to create a new energy source could save the planet from catastrophe. But time is running out.
I thought this was a pipe dream, like hoverboards, but it’s like the Apollo programme run by international bureaucrats.
