’Breakthrough’ as fusion experiment generates excess energy for the first time
Scientists have hailed a 'true breakthrough' as a fusion reaction has successfully generated more energy than was used to create it. For over seventy years, scientists have been attempting to harness thermonuclear fusion - the power source of stars - to generate energy. This is a true breakthrough moment, which is tremendously exciting.
