Advances in Nuclear Fusion: Conversation with a Plasma Physicist

If you don't understand how nuclear fusion works, that's totally okay!

This event is for you.

From what we know nuclear fusion has the potential to completely and radically change the way in which we get energy, how our world is powered, and could potentially usher in a revolution in the fight against climate change.

But how does it work and what have these recent advances actually been?

On December 5, a team at LLNL’s National Ignition Facility (NIF) conducted the first controlled fusion experiment in history to reach this milestone, also known as scientific energy breakeven, meaning it produced more energy from fusion than the laser energy used to drive it. This historic, first-of-its kind achievement will provide unprecedented capability to support NNSA’s Stockpile Stewardship Program and will provide invaluable insights into the prospects of clean fusion energy.

Speaker: Dr. Mordecai “Mordy” Rosen, an acclaimed Plasma Physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, which conducted this experiment is coming to Manny's to discuss.
