In December of 2015, the Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany successfully activated one of the worlds largest nuclear fusion reactors, the Wendelstein 7-X (W 7-X) Stellerator, for the first time. This promising nuclear fusion technology has the ability to generate enormous amounts of energy while not producing any radioactive waste, and is believed to be much safer than traditional nuclear fission. Now US and German researchers have determined the W 7-X’s experimental 3D magnetic containment field – to control the plasma created by fusion – is operating properly as designed, which is a major finding. This confirmation opens the door to a technology that may revolutionize the search for safe and clean energy production. It is a goal that has eluded nuclear scientists for the last 60 years.
